Being trustworthy is important as you work at living a life of abundance.
How can you expect to discover abundance in any area of your life if others don't feel they can count on you?
Abundance can't be attained all on your own. Eventually, you'll need the help of other people in your quest for a quality and satisfying way of life.
When those around you know you can be trusted, it'll go a long way. I feel this is something that's rare in today's world.
We all know our so-called "leaders" are full of "you know what" and are lying every time they open their mouths.
We know many corporations and government agencies have lied to us.
Some of these lies have brought them great profits while causing innocent people to come down with serious illnesses.
So, imagine what happens when you live an authentic life and come to be known as a person who is genuine.
You stand out immensely.
You shine in the eyes of others.
People want to be around you.
"Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom."
- Thomas Jefferson
Does it take time to build trust? Absolutely. However, when you have that kind of reputation, great things begin to happen.
I have a friend, Dave, who I've built a great relationship with. We both trust one another without any questions. I know he's trustworthy beyond belief.
This didn't happen overnight. We've known each other over eight years. Over time, I knew he was a quality person and that just made me want to be around him.
The more we got to know one another, the more we found out we had many similar interests and could help one another.
We've built two websites together and are currently researching real estate projects. These aren't the types of things you want to do with someone you can't trust!
We both bring different talents to the table that help make our business pursuits successful. Finding an honest partner helps to build abundance into both our lives.
I pass this story on to inspire you to live a life that eventually shows others that you can be counted on to always do the right thing. By doing so, you'll be able to attract the right people into your life.
As you attract other trustworthy friends, you'll eventually find one or two that you can work together with. By working together, you can help one another achieve life abundance that much more quickly.
Also, it's just enriching to be around other people of quality.
They're a breath of fresh air in comparison to all the lying and deception we're exposed to. It helps you have faith in others. It keeps you positive and optimistic.
"If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."
