Are you Trusting?

Updated on August 24, 2016

Trust in YOU

Cliche is it to say you cannot give what you do not have? Indeed, yet true indeed. It's hard to exhibit a characteristic you do not possess. For trust to be true and strong, you need to bring it out of you and into any relationship where trust is needed- friendship, marriage, parenting, work, business, etc.

Sad as it may be to see that trust seems to be a rarity, there are countless manifestations and aspects of trust that are available for you to experience and live out. Trust is key to fruitfulness of life and relationships. Learn to trust these and you'll be seeing a whole lot of difference in your life.

Trust Your Self to Do the Right Thing

Man, who is not desensitized or hardened by wrongdoing and selfishness, has a conscience that is perceives right and wrong. Rightness is never relative. One cannot say that robbing can be right depending on your view point. Universal truth is, it is wrong to take anything that is not yours without consent.

You can choose to live right, even if your peers and the current social trend has swayed from rightness. You do not have to change your most important values just because they are no longer popular or current. A life with no code, with no values, what kind of life is it? What kind of person would you be?

Trust Your Self to Have a Fulfilled Life


Fulfillment in life is not hard to find. It becomes so only when man depends upon others and materials things. Keeping up with the Joneses is no way to find fulfillment and it is futile to keep placing your satisfaction on things that perish, break down, get replaced for newer models. These bring happiness, yes, but such happiness has an expiration date.

Old school fulfillment was simple, yet it has proven true and enduring for ages:

  • Expend hard work
  • Compete with noone but yourself, appreciate blessings that come your way.
  • Never slacken but learn to lay off on regular periods.
  • Know your possibilities and know your true limits.
  • Value people more than things.
  • Stay true to who you are.
  • Change for the better.

Trust the Value of YOU

Noone is born without a purpose. There is no mistaken births. Your parents may have not planned for you, but God surely did. Did He plan for you to be raised in a bad home? No. Did He plan for you to grow up broke? No. God never plans bad things for us. We live in a fallen world and bad things happen. With the bad things happening, God plans nothing but good for the people who live in this world.

People say bad mean things, demeaning things. But those mean, demeaning things dont' need to be true in your life. Know these truths:

  1. You have a purpose, a contribution to give in this life. Your family and workplace will benefit from that.
  2. Beauty is more than just the face and figure. Your good looks will fade, your figure will change, but your good, sensible heart will remain.
  3. Your value is not dictated by others. You do not become more valuable by having a relationship or a child, a job or a house. You, you, and you are already of high value.
  4. A life of positive impact and helpful contribution increases your value. Don't be self-absorbed lest you become of no use. And don't be consumed with 'doing' that you over-extend yourself.

“You just can’t trust anyone!” seems to be a constant refrain in the modern world. Indeed, learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult lessons. “That’s because trust is not a verb,” says legendary life coach Iyanla Vanzant, “it’s a noun. Trust is a state of mind and a state of being.”

In this wise book, the New York Times best-selling author and host of OWN’s popular reality TV show Iyanla: Fix My Life reveals how to cultivate this liberating power—by exploring what trust really is, how to trust, and why to trust
