Some of us go through life always being cautious about trusting others, we wait to see how people are in their interactions with us and others to assess if we can trust them.
In a conversation I heard between 𝘑𝘪𝘮 𝘊𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘉𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘦 𝘉𝘳𝘰𝘸𝘯 I was so intrigued by the “trusting mindset” Jim was describing…

Anecdotal experiences tell us that 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘄𝗲 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝘁𝘀𝗲𝘁, 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗻𝗼𝘁, 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹 𝗼𝗳 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗿 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗴𝗼 𝗯𝗲𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺. It feels quite special when someone trusts us especially if we’ve not done anything to earn it yet.
As human-beings we don’t like to disappoint other human-beings. This is why if someone trusts us to do something, most likely we will do everything in our power to get it done.
There’s of course the risk that you come across the exception to the rule…but which one would you bet on if your life depended on it?

At work we lose a lot of energy, productivity and innovative power if we focus on IF we can trust each other or not and also working on ways we can make others trust us. The speed at which we now need to be able to adapt to change is faster than ever before and I don’t believe we can risk losing time earning each other’s trust, rather I believe human-beings are inherently good so let’s give them the opportunity right from the start to shine.
