Trust: The Invisible Currency Running the World

By Juma / July 5, 2016 | 10:35 am




Businesses have been brought down to their knees for lack of trust. Countries have gone up in flames due to the absence of trust, and marriages have had to call it quits on matters of trust. Everything we do is based on an unspoken exchange of trust. Trust has power; trust has force. The force of trust is powerful and the power of trust is forceful.

A good country is built on the wheels of trust. There must be trust between the leaders and the people they lead. Leaders who lack trust among themselves spend so much time checking their backs than carrying out their due responsibilities. The people must also be able to trust in their leaders. Many people have no trust in their leaders, especially political leaders. All around the world, the least trusted people are politicians. Politicians are considered liars, greedy and unstable in terms of promises. In all this, one thing is the remedy for all and that is trust.

They say that the business of doing business is a very serious business but he truth is that the business of doing business need to be built on trust. Business partners need to trust each other for a business to thrive. Customers need to trust a business owner for the relationship to go on. Business break for lack of trust. Businesses lose customers for luck of trust. In business, it is about trust, nothing more and nothing less.

Employers have been at loggerheads with their employees on the basis of trust. Employers don’t trust their employees and employees don’t trust their bosses. A good relationship between an employer and an employee is built on trust. An enterprise that has trust is more viable and vibrant than that that lacks the same. An employer who builds trust between him and his employees is more happy that that who does not.

There is nothing as important in marriage as trust. There is no marriage that has ever existed in absence of trust. Where there is no trust, there is no marriage. Lack of trust in marriage is more dangerous and more lethal than infidelity. People have killed each other in marriage just for lack of trust. Trust, therefore, is a very palatable ingredient of any given relationship. Spouses need to trust each other for their relationship to thrive. Children too, need to have trust in their parents. There are families where children have no trust in one of the parent, mostly a father. A family that has firm foundations on trust is a strong family.

Education is made up of various stakeholders. These stakeholders need to have trust between them. Teachers need to have trust among themselves, trust among their students and students need to have trust in their teachers. In Kenya, teachers lack trust in their employer, the Teachers Service Commission. TSC too does not have trust in teachers. This has often led to numerous teachers’ strikes in the country. Trust is, therefore, needed in the education sector.

Trust is very important. There is nothing that thrives without trust. Trust yourself. Trust others too but cautiously.
