Be Trusted and be Respected

Trust comes by earning it, not expecting it.


― Katie Kacvinsky

Trust is like a vase.. once it's broken, though you can fix it the vase will never be the same again.”


Trust can only be earned and there is no other way to get it. It takes a long time to build it and it can be destroyed instantly. How do you build the trust of other people in you?


Trust yourself first: According to Cardinal De Ret, “A man who doesn’t trust himself can never really trust anyone else.” Trust yourself for what you have promised yourself to do. If you can’t believe yourself that you can do it, who else can you believe?

Be trusted  at work: Trust is an important success factor at work. It is a part of your performance. When you can’t be trusted it means there is reservation about your performance. You really have to earn the trust of others for the first time and every time. You have to promise to deliver and deliver as promised and there is no other way about it.

Be trusted at home: In every carton of glasses there are 4 words written on the outside:”Fragile! Handle with Care”. It is the same with a marriage. Once the trust is broken it is beyond reconciliation, just like Tiger Wood. Likewise, when you have promised your children to do something just do it and don’t break the trust of your children in you. It does not matter how small the issue is, it is the trust that matters.

Be trusted among people: When you do not honor your promises to your friends, it means you do not value friendship and very soon you will have fewer friends. You will regret when you need help and there is no one to count on.

Be trusted in the community: As an example, it takes a long time for others in the blogosphere to trust you. You can build or destroy trust in a simple act like posting your articles. Are you able to post in a consistent and regular basis so that readers will not be disappointed and turned off?


Build the trust in you and be trusted and respected.
