Assets that will change the way you treat people and how you treat people. Very valuable asset that he has the potential to completely change the way you do business.
Would you care to guess what it is?
Actually, the answer is rather simple - Trust.
Trust is very important in our business and personal lives. Keep reading and we will discuss some ways that you can make the most of this important asset.
Have you ever wondered why certain people got a sweet promotion?
Or why customers so willing to buy a product from a particular company?
Do you wonder why some can borrow millions and billions when others struggle to raise thousands?
Or just why DLM gives priority to writers who participated in guest blogging course?
We can come up with many answers to the above questions and yet at its core, it's all about confidence.
You see, we often think of trust as a good thing to have a social quality. But in reality, it's a hard-edged, real economic assets that allow our economic system as a whole. Even our currency is based entirely on trust.
How to gain confidence?
The beauty of belief is that it can not be bought, which puts everyone on a level playing field. Instead, trust is all about how you act, how you treat people and relationships with them.
There are simple techniques and sometimes tricky to try to influence people to trust you or seem trustworthy. For example, put testimonials on the sales page or establish a relationship using a particular language that will appeal to your targeted audience.
Techniques such as these certainly have their uses but if we do not have the actual quality of the people who can be trusted, they will only bring short-term results.
Fortunately, there are some things we can do to develop our faith muscles:
We need to trust others first. Just as it takes two to tango it takes two sides to build trust: people who believe and people you trust. And if we want to get good at first believe we need to learn what it means to put yourself out there and trusting others. For example, if we sell products and offer a 110% money back guarantee we believe our clients that they will not take advantage of our offer.
Stick to your words. When we trust others with something that we expect them to perform and deliver agreed outcomes. However, almost all of us are in a situation when the other party does not deliver. This kind of agitation, is not it? This is why it is important to follow up when others put their trust in us. Quick note: also a good idea to be much more selective to whom and under what circumstances we give our word to follow.
Do not lie or mislead. I guess it goes without saying that lying is bad and we do not have to do it. But sometimes we do, we call this "little white lies" or figure out another reason to explain our behavior. But if our goal is to build long-term trust, there's no such thing as a good lie. A slightly more subtle variation is misleading - it implies something that is not true without actually verbalizing lie. And though it's much easier to rationalize that it's not our fault "because hey, I never actually said that!" It was a deal breaker when it comes to trust.
Practice what you preach. If we want people to take seriously what we do and what we say we must lead by example. People will not believe our suggestions if we do not apply ourselves, regardless of our intentions.
Admit when you are wrong. Although we have this huge list of "to do" and "do not do that", there will be times when we will slip up and do something completely untrustworthy. In this case we need to be the first to step up and admit our mistakes. Making mistakes and taking responsibility can really help boost our credibility. There is a lot of value in taking responsibility for both the good and the bad.
Building trust is a long-term investment. Lastly, we need to understand that building trust is not something that happens overnight. Even more than that, try to use some shortcuts that will often lead to counter-productive results. Building trust is a slow accumulative process of small deeds but if we are committed, countless awards.
One of the best things about developing muscle our belief is that not only it is an asset that benefits us in every aspect of our lives, but we also become better people in the process. And also, it just makes it worthwhile.
