Five things that need to happen for you to trust


Hi everyone, 
We trust people who we know understand us, our context, our situation, our needs, what makes it work for us, and what makes it break down. When they truly understand, listen, and care, we are more than willing to open ourselves to them. Here are the ingredients for trust to take place in a relationship. 
Intent — You’ll trust when you know someone’s motives are good. 
Understanding — You’ll trust when you feel someone understands you. 
Character — You’ll trust when someone’s character reveals traits such as honesty, love, compassion, mercy, courage, patience, etc. 
Capacity and Ability — You’ll trust when someone has the ability to do what you need them to do. A surgeon, for example, should know how to perform an operation. 
Track Record —You’ll trust someone based on their past behavior. 
Here is a thought for you: When do you “invest” in someone or in anything? Answer: When you have high trust. And when you think about it, isn’t that what you want from the people in your life?
Until next time …
