I've written, erased, written, erased this post as I try to convey the magnitude of the power of trust.  Do I start with talking about what trust is not?  About mistrust?  No...I don't think so.  That's a negative.  We can all trust every day....I trust that the sun will rise.  I trust that if I do my work I will get paid.  No...that's not the trust I'm talking about.  For me trust comes down to the:


The BHAG is the Big Hairy Audacious Goal.  Ultimately, real, deep down game changing trust comes down to the BHAG.  For me, I have a few BHAGs. 

  1. I want to have the best marriage ever;
  2. I want to raise children that love God, are leaders, and who will positively change the lives of others through example and actions, and I want to;
  3. Spend my time trying to make a massive impact on the world

This requires trust.....

  1. I need to believe that God has the perfect spouse for me.  I need to believe that my wife will accept me, good and bad, for who I am, while I'm still striving and working for something better;
  2. I need to let my kids communicate with me and for me to love them the way my father and mother did, even when the kids are wrong.  I can still discipline them, but it's out of love.  That, my friend, it what real trust is.
  3. In my quest to change the world, I have a vision that I can share with coaches and partners at work that help me achieve those goals through personal improvement, coaching, accountability, and vice versus.

Trust isn't a definition...

It's a way of life for those things that matter most. 


 Without trust we perish, but with trust, dreams are realized!

Trust is good and lack of its is equally bad.

If you dont trust others or emit a lack of it in your ethics or conduct you will not go very far unless its being sentenced to a long term stay somewhere not very desirable

Great post - Trust in every relationship is both paramount and vital. Without it, there really is nothing. Here is quote about TRUST by  Friedrich Nietzsche quotes

I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you
