One word with lots of impact for only 5 letters.
Where does it start? At birth? Aren't we born with a trustful nature? I just ran over to the contest post to make sure I knew the rules and I noticed the baby being tossed in the air.
Have you ever seen a baby NOT like being tossed like that? They Know, without doubt, that you're going to catch them. It's the purest form of trust that I can think of.
What causes us to not trust? Is that too much of a blanket statement? Is Trust All or nothing? I can't imagine going through life trusting nothing.
Recently an incident here in the Rain created a huge conversation about trust. It involved someone we ALL knew and probably trusted. When the facts were made known to me I thought about them for a day or two.
Then, I went to my list of subscriptions and unsubscribed myself. I didn't see any need to keep reading someone who was now on my "not to be trusted" list. Such a small thing that really had no bearing on my life. We were just blogging friends. It didn't hurt me personally, but it was about being truthful.
I grew up in a home where being untruthful was 100% unacceptable. Because of that, it has always been my deepest desire for my clients to know that they can trust me. They can count on me to do what I say I'll do and to tell them from my heart what I think, when they ask.
I want them to be able to tell their friends, and hopefully future referrals, that they can trust me to put their interests above all others. That they're in good hands!
It IS how we're suppose to do business anyway.
