How do we rebuild trust? One small, well-thought-out, personal, positive step at a time.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Maybe you care about the damage trust has experienced?

Maybe you want to repair that damage?

Maybe you do not know how?

Band-aids don't ease the discomfort of negative thinking.

Shape up, Man, you gotta improve your attitude!  

Great advice in theory - useless advice in reality. 

If you want to help people with negative thinking, think first about your own attitude, thoughts and action then learn how to improve by replacing negative thinking with new thoughts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Willpower: we use it or it slips away on us.

Willpower relies on energy. Use it wisely. Use it regularly. Drain it. Rebuild it. Strengthen it.

Willpower [and its outcome, self-control]: use it or fail to have it; use it and experience personal growth.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Trust, based on a history of past experiences, is not enough to guarantee business relationships contain value. When insight is added to trust, business relationships can thrive.

Invest the time it takes to understand people. Understanding provides for trust, motivation, & leadership.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In part, inspired by a re-reading of Michael Gerber's 'The E-Myth Revisited'. Pick a demographic - learn its psychographics - and don't forget, we're dealing with people...not statistics.

Of course, there's a softer side and a more-important justification. Only when we understand others are we able to help them. [Without such understanding we ramble along, at best, half-helping ourselves.]
