Trust is the invisible currency that is tangible

10 Thoughts on Trust:

  1. It is the invisible currency, and it is tangible

  2. Trust is a feeling, and it is real

  3. Trust is difficult to be measured, but it can

  4. Trust is a bond between two or more persons, and not organisations

  5. Trust is mutual, and not exclusive 

  6. Trust is earned, and can be lost 

  7. Trust is given, and never demanded

  8. Trust brings a sense of security, and vulnerability 

  9. Trust allows you to have confidence in the other person, and you can likewise lose confidence in them

  10. Trust brings a sense of liberty, and freedom
