Allowing other to trust you stems from integrity. That’s the bottom line of it. Without trust, you have nothing and everything that you have can be taken away just like that. Trust is the most important ingredient in all types of relationships. It’s is the glue that holds all people together and the key to becoming a person who can be of true influence.
You could assume that people would continue to trust you until such time that you give or show them a reason not to do so. During today’s time with most people, we need to prove our trustworthiness initially before moving forward. This is what makes integrity that important if you want to be someone of influence. Trust only comes from others when you are able to exemplify a solid character & reputation.
You will never know a person until you see them interact with a child, when their boss is away, when they think no one will ever find out or when they’re given so much power. People with integrity will never have to worry about it. No matter where they may be or who they are with or whatever situation they could be in, they remain consistent and continue to be guided by their principles.
Question of the day: Do you behave in a manner consistent with your principles of integrity no matter where or whom you find yourself with?
