How can one gain respect and trust?
In a business world, your trust worthy depends on your pocket.
The more you have, the more trust worthy you are, and with it is respect.
A respected person is a trustworthy person.
These things are the foundations of respect and trust. Education - you are respected and trust thru your decree of attainment. Leadership - you are respected and trust thru your authority status. Wealth - you are respected and trust thru your riches.
But what if a person doesn't have these qualities? Can he or she be respected and trust?
If a person doesn't have the foundations, he or she has the virtual respect and trust. Virtual respect and trust are anchored to a person or persons that have the foundations.
"The foundations must be present to gain respect and trust. "
That's why icons and idols are born. Some people don't respect and trust them selves that they need to have someone to look at and "full" respect and trust from it.
The substitution of the foundations
Trust and respect are also found in the absence of a person. But just the same like the virtual respect and trust it is also anchored in the foundations.
