"The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity." — Ulysses S. Grant
Positive people are resilient people, and the most resilient people are those who develop high value relationships. If you or someone you know needs more positivity then take action today by starting a conversation with me.
No one is truly independent, which is why allies and mentors are so important to our success. In accepting the help from trusted mentors and allies we stumble upon a key element in the Hero's Journey: Trust.
Yet, beyond the trust that we place in our fellow world travelers, we also place a lot of trust in the decisions that we make and the actions that we take:
Going to college or studying a trade is trusting that we will be emotionally and economically rewarded for it in the longterm.
Buying a house is trusting that the city of town will be a suitable place to call home.
Marrying a partner is trusting that we will be able to maintain right relations.
What are you putting your trust into? Will this trust enable you to land on solid ground? Will it teach you how to fly? Will it cause you to crash and fail?
