Trust is confidence with assured dependance about something in the future. Trust builds hope with reliance on the character and ability of someone or something.
Everyone wants to be trusted but it takes work to consistently show up as being a trustworthy person. We can’t be trustworthy some days and other days not. It’s an all or nothing deal with behavior that is aligned with our intentions.
Before anyone decides if they can trust us, they decide what they think about our character. Then they decide if we have the competence to be trusted.
Let us seek to build trust in everything we do today.
