Trust is a Must –How to be Trustworthy? (Part 2)
This is the second blog on trust. Trust is one of the eight characteristics of great relationships. Before expecting others to trust five things need to be in place. Here is the remainder of the five things discussed in the first blog
3.Trust the Process: Life and relationship is not a destination as much as it is a process. If you can embrace change and can learn to change without compromising timeless principles than you will become a person who can be trusted.
4.Trust Others: If you don’t use others’ perspectives, critiques and admonitions to become better than you will have a limited focus. This limited focus will make it difficult for others to trust you
.5.Trust Yourself: Having confidence in yourself and who God created you to be will give others the ability to trust you. You will be able to make decisions that are concise and beneficial for all involved. Those close to you will sense this and will be emboldened by your security and the assurance you bring to the relationship.
Questions to Ponder:1.How much emphasis am I putting achieving something rather than growing through the process?2.How much am I willing to change? 3.Do I try to keep things the same or I am flexible to change?4.How much am I willing to hear other’s opinions?5.How much am I willing to accept correction from others?6.How much confidence do I have in myself?7.How much does my confidence encourage others?
Scripture: Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; v6 in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. (NIV)
