So is cheerfulness, or a good temper, the more it is spent, the more remains.

Trust matters

Who do you trust? Who places their trust in you?

Where there is trust there is great value, and the potential for much more. Trust removes friction from interactions and enables highly effective collaboration.

No amount of money or power can buy trust or force it to exist. Your trust in others, and their trust in you, can only be built with time, with diligence, with honesty.

Over time, the choices you make have a crucial effect on the amount of trust in your life. In each encounter with someone else, you can either be building trust or impeding trust.

Any deviation from honesty and authenticity, no matter how insignificant in the moment, can shut out trust in the long term. Your genuine commitment to truth, respect, and dependability, on the other hand, gives trust a place to grow.

Trust matters in pretty much every area of life. Make the choices, day after day, that enable trust to flourish.

— Ralph Marston
