52 Ideas That You Can Implement to Build Trust

David Penglase, a Trust Alliance member from Australia offers the following:

“In earning the trust of others, being clear on what you want for others, is more important than what you want from them.”

Your intentions matter! Not just what you intend to do (the action), and not just why you intend to do it (the motivation behind the action), but also having a clear and mindful understanding of how what you intend to do will impact others (the impact).

These three elements of intention, the action (what), the motivation (why), and the impact (how), are a direct reflection of your character (who). 

You now have the who, what, why and how of intention, all that remains is for you to decide on when you will start to build even more trust in your life (self-trust, trust in others and earning the trust of others) by harnessing the power of intention.

Thank you David. We hope our readers heed this week’s advice.
