If you say you can trust someone then u r admitting to something even greater then love. Trust involves all your thoughts and emotions to be given to someone so they can have. Trusting someone is knowing that you can be hurt so bad that none can even know. This is why trust is a word of great power. – Unknown Author
I love a site that is just full of awesome stuff! Trust your heart. It doesn’t lie and it will lead you to happiness.
Trust the Process – sometimes what we want is within reach. We can see it, that shiny object, sparkling goal, iridescent place that we have been working towards and for. When we see it, we get so excited and ready for the next step. But sometimes we can’t see it. Sometimes we can’t see an end, even with all of the hard work and determination that we have been focusing to reach our dream. During those times, we have to remember to trust the process. Trust that everything that we are doing and going through is just part of the steps that we take to get to our destination. Keep visualizing where you want to be and keep repeating that you are already there. For every bump in the road, remember that it is just another challenge to learn from to get you where you want to be. Trust the Process and enjoy the ride. Getting to where you want to be is just another part of the larger picture where each step is part of the goal and each goal is just another step in your life. You are never finished with the Process. Trusting the Process is Trusting Your Life.
I recently worked with a group to complete a project for a local non-profit. We were to review the organization’s Program Design and Management team, org chart and policies and procedures. Each person was expected to fully participate by completing their assigned reading and making comments regarding that reading. This is a process that I have done before and I plan on doing again. It is something that I enjoy and that I am good at. I expected the project to be completed quickly and easily. I did not get what I expected.
I had an acquaintance who was working with me on this project. I was familiar with her education and experience and we knew each other, but I hadn’t worked with her before. I didn’t recommend her for the project, but I had nothing to say that was negative to her. During the process to complete our evaluation of this department, my acquaintance, who we can call Jessie, did not fulfill her role and meet her obligations. She was not prepared at our regularly scheduled meetings and in some cases, I am not sure that she had even looked at the assigned information. During the whole week, she was not fully involved due to a weak foundation in the material. At the end, the rest of us had to work longer hours to make up for her slack.
In the beginning, I was bitter, I will admit. I was upset that Jessie hadn’t completed her tasks and that her actions had caused the rest of the group to work harder and longer. I had a valid reason to be irritated. But because this is how I am trying to lead my life, I took a step back and let go of the negative feelings. The review that we did for this organization is similar to a grant review process. We are a group of people who know that we are going to spend the next five days immersed in this organization’s world to ensure that we give the best feedback and recommendations to meet their strengths and needs. Jessie was not prepared for the level of commitment that this contract required. She also was not prepared for the professionalism that is still required, whether you are sitting at a table in an office or conferencing over the phone while you sit in your house. We did get the job done and the group that completed it was more of a team due to the difficulties than we might have been without them. This project wasn’t the best fit for Jessie, but it was still work that helped our client and was completed the way that it was supposed to.
This experience was a good example of when trust isn’t met. I could have reacted angrily and I could have taken my anger out on Jessie. Instead, I counseled her on how this role wasn’t the right role for her and how we could use in her other areas that didn’t involve the same level of commitment and responsibilities. In the end, I trusted the process of believing in the good and looking for the good rather than focusing on what didn’t go as planned. Sometimes having something bad happen leads you to something better.
I like this quote. I choose to believe in miracles and love and I choose to trust in a power greater than me, regardless of religion, spiritualism, or faith creeds.
I love this and I had to borrow it from http://www.rd.com/slideshows/funny-work-cartoons/, which presented funny cartoons from the Reader’s Digest. I hope that they don’t get mad, but this is just how it feels when you get promoted into management.
