Try Honesty as a System of Trust, Success Will Follow
Trust is a cornerstone of human existence. It is interesting to note that, in the world of commerce, the really huge transactions are generally initiated on trust. And certainly in daily life our existence is made easier, more fruitful and rewarding through trust!
Experience alone does not produce excellence. We need methodology, order, wisdom, insight, verve, passion, motivation and, most certainly trust. At least I believe that excellence without trust is hollow.
I am not sure that trust is a quantity. I have always considered trust as an absolute ... it is either there or it is not. I suppose one could quantify trust just as everything else in the business world is quantified! But I will stay with my moral interpretation and rely on trust as an unalterable condition ... it is there or it is not!
Ben Franklin said that glass, china and reputation are easily cracked and never well mended. Some words in our language have an aura, a sense, an importance beyond the word itself. When uttered, such words create an emotion. They are special words, deserving of a special reverence. Trust is one of those words.
The human condition responds to kindness, concern, nurturing ... and even if one is in a position of power or control, to use it as an element of motivation is both mean-spirited and non productive. The best managements are those which treat employees with respect ... they earn respect in return. Productivity is always better in companies that understand the human condition ... appreciate employees, treat them fairly, pay them appropriately, and are interested in their families and welfare.
Sincerity is a difficult quality to fabricate. It seems to me that it is easy to detect the lack of sincerity ... body language, expressions, tone and the words themselves are clues to insincerity. Frequently, expressions of sincerity are politically motivated, especially within a commercial environment. It is a social requirement for some, rather than a social grace! To be truly meaningful, the speaker must feel the sincerity within ... then, when expressed it comes forth as open, honest, real ... and yes, from someone you can trust!
Plato said that honesty is for the most part less profitable than dishonesty! I think that may be true in mundane terms, but for the Right Thinker it is only acceptable that trust is always the case ... not on occasion, but always.
Being trustworthy is an admirable character trait. It is being honest, reliable and responsible. Others will respect you more and want to continue relationships and dealing with you.

Changing Your Luck
In this week's New Age Notebook, I am going to address a subject that often comes up in the chat rooms: LUCK. Why is it that some people seem to be born with horseshoes up the wazoo while others battle an endless string of disasters and setbacks?Is there such thing as being born under a lucky star? Is it karma or a curse? While some are eternal victims of Murphy's Law: "if something can go wrong, it will.", others seem to be able to get away with murder and suffer no consequences at all.

Wait, Thats Not on the Map
Back from my amazing summer excursion, a month long drive through Spain! Well, I mean, I didn't do any of the driving, my partner did. See, I only know how to drive an automatic and since we have a stick here in Belgium, my partner kindly agreed to do all the driving. In total it ended up being close to 5000 kilometers and he did beautifully without so much as a complaint. Nice, huh?
Take Care of Yourself to Achieve Maximum Results (part 1)
All too often, we push ourselves past the limits of mere mortals, and into the netherland of bad health. We eat wrong, we don't sleep enough, we load up on caffeine, and we don't exercise. Notice I said we; I'm guilty too. I know I need to exercise more, I know I need to eat better, and I definitely know I don't need that fourth cup of coffee. Why do we do it, and what can we do to change our behaviors?

Balance Of Life
Mary and Susan were friends for years. They grew up together and attended the same schools. They were now both in their 40's, and both had great careers. They both had a similar upbringing - same education, same family values, similar support and financial position. But there was one main difference. Mary never seemed to have enough time. She watched her life long friend Susan. She had similar responsibilities and interests. Susan had a career, she had three children, she had her hobbies, one of which included golf. Over lunch, Susan was telling Mary about the golf game that she played last weekend.
Have You Given Away Your Power?

Thoughts on Successful People
I was hired to do some training for a sales team from one of the largest companies in America. There were 16 people on this team.
