Trust others to win their trust


Trust is essential if you want to help people. There are two aspects of trust — your own trust in others and their trust in you. People will naturally start trusting you when they see you overcoming problems in a reliable and constant way. However, a more powerful and long-term way of gaining people’s trust is to give them the experience of your trust in them.

This is an art which can be cultivated as follows: Never listen to gossip and never foster it yourself; form neither judgements nor opinions; rather, be spiritual and clean in your feelings. Learn to develop good wishes for others. This will be the ultimate measure of your ability to trust.
