How to build trust? Trust! What is it?

I think it’s among the cheapest things in the world. Isn’t it?

Well, I think yes, because – nowadays anyone, anywhere and anytime can break your trust easily without much thinking about you and your relationships or whatever.

I know most of you reading this post have gone through trust break. Well, everything has merits and demerits attached to it.

Be natural with others

What does it mean to be natural with others?

Well, the meaning is clear. Behave as you usually do. Is it complex?

Okay, let me explain in detail.

Well, some people behave as per their moods. When they are angry they talk rudely and when their happy they act as kind and generous.

In short, you can say that they have a mood swing problem, and it’s the biggest problem because it takes your loved ones away from you.

If you have such a problem, you have to soon, get rid of it. But how?

Angry, happiness and sadness are all feelings and if you can control your feelings – you can control anything.

  1. Is it possible to control feelings?
  2. Yes, for sure. You can control your feelings through meditation. Meditation is something that you can do anytime, for instance – you can meditate while walking, sitting, lying, etc.

Although, it would benefit more if you can meditate on proper asana. For more information check here: Meditation (Wikipedia)  

This is the biggest problem when it comes to building trust – people often fear to trust those who behave as per their moods– because it’s unpredictable to know about their moods.

So, this is the first step, you have to control your feelings and mood swing.

Be a consultant and help people to build trust

When one of my friend asked me How to build trust? and gave this answer.

Help is what people opt for – especially if it’s free. If you want to build trust in people – you have to become a helping hand for them.

People trust more on those who help them in bad situations and sort out their problems.

Some people act like helping hands but they aren’t in reality. You don’t have to be like them – and I know that you won’t be – after all you’re my friend.

I shouldn’t be telling you this but do you remember that situation where you were left alone and no one helped you.

Even your most loyal friends left you – but one day a stranger helped you to get out of that situation.

Now you’re here and reading this article. You can’t forget the help offered by that stranger for your entire life.

Now tell me wouldn’t you trust that person?

Of course, you’ll do. I would have done the same thing man.

This is the way a person feels and do in return, so be a helping hand and help people to gain their trust.

Things to remember: You shouldn’t expect something in return for the help you do.

Do not touch others without their permission

How would you feel if a stranger holds you from back or simply put his hands on your shoulders?

Awful. Right?

So, moral of the story: Do not touch others if you have just met them – even if you have been friends for a few months because it takes time to build trust.

However, it doesn’t mean that you’ll touch them after winning their trust. It’s completely wrong. I condemned such things.

You’re with them to build great relationships so that both of you can help each other in bad times, share knowledge, etc.

Touch becomes natural when you trust somebody a lot, for example, your childhood friends.

Thus, keep this point in mind; do not touch anyone because you won’t like it – if the same thing would happen with you.

Tell people real-life examples and blow their minds

How to build trust in this manner?

Well, Most people win the trust of others within a few days of meeting them.


Because they talk to others based on true and real-life facts.

Suppose, you met a stranger for the first time, and you both started conversations and the other man is sayings something that you think is known by very few people. 

How would you feel?

Awesome, right?

I’m absolutely right.

You would naturally think that this person is so talented and always speaks the truth and he will win your trust easily.

You have to do the same thing – and it could be possible only if you have knowledge and wisdom.

And knowledge comes from reading and learning not from playing marbles.

Tell them a lie to build trust

What! Newtan are you mad?

Of course not.

How to build trust from a lie?

Relax, it’s is a powerful method to win and build trust. Let’s see how. Suppose, It’s your sister’s birthday and you had promised her to gift a beautiful dress.

Now your sister asks, “Brother did you buy me a present?”

You have already bought the dress but here you told the lie, “Sorry, sister I haven’t bought a dress for you.

Your sister will become angry and she will run into her bedroom – but there she finds a beautifully packed box  – and when she opened it – she founds her beautiful dress.

Just imagine how she would feel.

Oh my god! She would feel like she is in heaven – smooth violin music is playing everywhere. La la la laaaa la.

She would come back and hug you tightly. Isn’t it? And from now on she would trust you more than ever before.

This is the secret of building trust. Did you get this point? Tell me in the comment.

Things to remember:

Do remember that you have already completed a task before you tell a lie – otherwise only God can save you. Ha Ha Ha…..
