The Seven Shortcuts to Creating Trust

  1. There
  2. Are
  3. No
  4. Shortcuts
  5. To
  6. Creating
  7. Trust

We all want shortcuts. And for getting from A to B in some things, shortcuts are possible.

But not in that fragile, yet powerful, realm of human trust.

Trust is created by people of character, who live and act consistently.

You earn it. One action at a time. One person at a time. Over a long period of time.

No shortcuts.
