#18 I value my intentional trust relationships! This week I will earn trust and build even stronger intentional trust relationships.
Each week I’m reporting here on my personal experience in implementing my 52 Intentional Affirmations. These are designed to help us be more intentionally mindful of the impact our intentions have on living a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.

It’s so easy to just take for granted the personal value each of us receives from our intentional trust relationships both in our personal lives and work lives as well. However, what science tells us is that the more positive our relationships and the more time we are actively involved in positive experiences with others, the higher our overall sense of well being, the more successful we are (in business and personal life), the healthier we are, and the longer we live.
Good reason to work on building intentional trust relationships.
Over this past week I’ve been making regular entries in my gratitude journal as I focused on the value I was receiving from my intentional trust relationships. And the main value was a strengthening sense of well-being.
It’s an interesting question to ask of yourself “How can I earn trust and build even stronger intentional trust relationships?”
As I asked this of myself, it became obvious to me that the answer rests on your intentional actions. People get your truth! And your truth is revealed through your intentions, promises, actions and results you achieve.
I became very aware of the amount of concentrated effort it takes to really be in the moment of every conversation you’re having. To be really listening and paying attention takes energy and effort, but the results are reciprocal.
Both in my personal and business life, I pride myself on my genuine intention to be in the moment when I am with other people. At work, I try to really listen to what someone is saying, beyond just the obvious… l refer to it as listening for the insignificant. When I practice this, I am listening more intently and more intentionally.
Same in my personal life… really listening is such a positive way to be in the moment and reciprocal value is achieved within the relationship.
So, remove the distractions, listen with intention, and earn the trust and build even more intentionally strong trust relationships… and be grateful for the value you receive from the intentional trust relationships you have.
And finally, but most importantly, let the other person know how much you do value their friendship, love, or if it’s in a work relationship, remember to tell your clients how much you value working with them and why.
