Trusting and Trustworthy – Trust Part 3 of 3

  This is part 3 of 3, and it’s to your benefit to not only be trustworthy, but also to be one who is trusting. Psychologists have found that people who are trusting are more likely to be happy and psychologically adjusted than those who view the world with suspicion and disrespect. We like people who are trusting and we seek them out as friends. We listen to the people we trust. We accept their influence. The most effective leadership situations are those in which each member of a team can trust the others. A good team is made up of people who consider themselves to be in a partnership with the rest of the team members. Each team member must respect the rest of the team, and each of them must be able to trust each other. Trust makes it possible for people to rely on one another, and it allows them to make up for each other’s weaknesses instead of trying to exploit them. You can start a relationship with charisma, but you need to have character and you need to develop trust in order to build a healthy relationship. If you trust, you will be disappointed occasionally, but if you don’t trust others, you will be miserable all the time. Yes, if you trust others, sometimes, you’ll be hurt by them. However, if you aren’t willing to be hurt by people, then you’ll never truly be able to be helped by them. When it comes to trust, the well-known investor, Warren Buffett, has three qualifications for judging his investment opportunities. Regardless of how good the numbers look, Warren Buffett says that he never invests with anyone that he doesn’t trust, that he doesn’t respect, or that he doesn’t like. And the last quote that I wanna share in this series comes from Rick Warren. I was reading his best selling book, The Purpose Driven Life, and I came across this quote. It says, “Every time you trust God’s wisdom and do whatever He says, even when you don’t understand it, you deepen your friendship with God.” Isn’t that a good way to end this series?! Hey, my desire for you is that you live in such a way that everybody will be able to say that you are trustworthy; that your word is your bond. After all, winners are trustworthy, and you are a winner, and given enough time, you WILL win! Yes, you ARE a winner!
