Trust is a Lifestyle



What do we mean when we say “Trust is a Lifestyle?”

  • Trust is not a mathematical equation or formula
  • It is not a memo to be circulated at a meeting
  • It is not negotiated via a contract or a regulation
  • It cannot be delegated
  • It is not something to be “built” in the wake of a crisis
  • It is not “the buzzword of the day.”

When we hear the word “trust” we should envision a way of being, a lifestyle that includes:

  • Acting with integrity at all times, no exceptions
  • Respecting others
  • Making ethical decisions
  • Shaking the hand of a partner in business or in your personal life, looking them in the eye, and telling them that you are extending trust.

Build a lifestyle of trust, beginning with self-trust, and extend trust to those around you. It will be reciprocated.  You will experience a higher quality of life, as will those who learned from your example.
