What Does Trust Have to Do With a Great Relationship?

"Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly, and they will show themselves great." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

From the time we learn to speak, we are taught the importance of trust.  In fact, we are told if there is no trust there is no relationship.  When trust dies, we are told the relationship dies.  We even hear how important
trust is in our professional lives.  Leaders are told to trust their people.  As a result, we have all grown to depend on trust to build relationships of any kind.   

But, what if this is bad advice?  What if we don’t know that advice is bad because no one has ever questioned it?  Tonight we are going to question whether or not it is in our best interest to depend on trust.

In the crudest form, every healthy person learned to walk as an infant without the need for trust in self.  When we took our first steps, we fell over and over again.  If we had to depend on trust, many of us would have believed that we could not trust ourselves.  That may have made some people give up on walking.  Because all healthy people can walk, it shows that trust is not needed to accomplish things.  Yet, we are told to trust in self and only become close to people we trust. 

On this show, we are going to discuss why you should kill trust for self and your closest relationships.  What is actually needed is much more powerful than trust.  Great communication is just one of the requirements.  Tune to hear the rest.  

Tonight, Sunday, June 23, from 7:00pm-8:30pm (EST) at Straight Talk with Ted Santos and Blair Nash.
