Around the world, and in every aspect of our lives TRUST is an issue. Who do you trust but more importantly who can you trust? Is the trust previous generations had in various people and organisations still in place? Do you trust your Dr, your banker, your mechanic, your child’s teacher, the scout master, the people you work?
What is TRUST:
reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence…these are all good definitions however I notice loyalty is missing. I think that is apart of trust. Don’t you?
More than 1000 people were asked to rate how much they trusted 100 well-known people and professions on a scale of one to 10…
Do you agree?
1. Dr Fiona Wood, burns specialist, 2005 Australian of the Year
2.Professor Ian Frazer, cancer researcher, 2006 Australian of the Year
3.The Wiggles, children’s entertainers
4.Ian Kiernan, founder of Clean Up Australia
5.Dr Harry Cooper, TV veterinarian, Harry’s Practice
Who do you trust?
6.Bindi Irwin, daughter of Steve Irwin
7.Terri Irwin, widow of Steve Irwin, owner of Australia Zoo
8.Professor Barry Marshall, medical researcher and Nobel laureate
9.Dick Smith, adventurer, entrepreneur and philanthropist
10.Ernie Dingo, TV presenter, The Great Outdoors

I have a few friends that I trust so completely to not only tell me the truth but I trust them with my thoughts and feelings….regardless of if they agree with me or not.
Trust is earned, but once you earn someone’s trust, you will always have it unless you do something to lose it. The wonderful thing about animals (pets) is they trust us and love us unconditionally. I wish humans were like that. What a wonderful world it would be if we were. The good thing about friends is you can tell them what is in your mind and in your heart, and you know whether or not they will agree with you before you even do it. But you know that you can tell them anyway, and it will be alright.
