Trust requires truth-tellers

No comments

The person you see in the mirror each morning is not the person everyone else sees.

Why? Because they are not you.

They see you through their own experiences, perspective, and filters.

And beyond a select few in your inner circle, you can’t know how you are being perceived by others.

That’s why you need truth-tellers.

Funny, we say we want the truth, but it’s an acquired taste, especially when it’s bitter.

From Seth Godin:

Good advice…is priceless. Not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear.

Not imaginary, but practical.

Not based on fear, but on possibility.

Not designed to make you feel better, designed to make you better.

Seek it out and embrace the true friends that care enough to risk sharing it.

I’m not sure what takes more guts — giving it or getting it.

Be a High-Trust Leader: Have the courage to receive the truth with gratitude. And then act on it.
