This morning I had an…well let’s just say interesting interaction that has sparked these thoughts I’m about to share with you. Let’s begin with these two questions. Why do we trust anyone? Why do we trust any business, corporation or company? I think there are a lot of people out there who are used to being lied to. It becomes something they expect. So it doesn’t matter if a person, company or business is being honest and truthful they don’t believe it. They can’t believe it. They’ll look for any reason for things to not be true. They try to find any fault they possibly can to prove their opinion of “Everyone lies all the time” to be true and will argue the point till the very end. They can’t be helped because their opinion has been made up.
Now, I’ll admit that there have been times in my life where I’ve been or felt this way myself. Maybe not to such extreme lengths but mistrusting, absolutely! I think to a certain degree we have a right as consumers to feel this way just because of the sheer volume of companies that do lie. However, to let that ruin it for yourself and other companies out there that are good, hard working, honest people is in my opinion not healthy. To say that everyone lies all the time or every company lies is just not factual. There needs to be some level of trust and faith present. Or you’ll just be bitter and angry all the time. Why put that out into the world?
I guess this leads into my other questions. What can a company do to earn your trust? For me, it’s about transparency and even here there’s a certain level of faith that needs to be involved. Even as a company, we have to have faith that the ingredients that we purchase from suppliers are what they tell us they are. Which is why it’s so important to us as a company to be very cautious and careful who we purchase from.
I’ve come to a place now where I’m a lot more trusting. I have more faith. I don’t want to be going around feeling like everyone is lying to me all the time. It’s just not a positive or happy way to be/live. When I think about the way I want to be and live my life mistrusting and suspicious are not on that list. What’s on your list? How do you want to be and live? What kind of energy do you want to put out into the world?
To have faith or not to have faith? That’s totally up to you. You have the power. The choice is yours.
