Do you trust yourself?
Have you met someone who you placed trust in only to have a friend throw in the shadow of doubt? Many times in my business career I have talked with consultants that I bond immediately with and find myself trusting. I bring them in on projects that I think they will help me expand only to be greeted with the mistrust of those around me. What disturbs me more than the shadow they are casting is that I let their poison infect me and my intuition!
I think there comes a time when you have to trust yourself and trust your intuition. I believe the ending of the story comes because of your belief. If you trust them and believe in them even when others do not, you will find they were worthy of your trust. If the poison of doubt creeps in and erodes your belief, they will fail you somehow. Understand that it is you that determines the ending!
