IT COMES DOWN TO TRUST

Are you a trusting person? Or do expect the worst from everyone? Your answer is most likely related to the last time you were hustled, who you were hustled by, and for how much. My father owned a small business. I asked him if he ever got stiffed by a customer, and if so, what he did about it. His answer was simple: “Hustle me once, shame on you. Hustle me twice, shame on me.” His choice of words were a bit different, but you get the idea. I live by those words, and I try not to make the same mistakes with the same people more than once. If I do, I have nobody to blame but myself. The unfortunate truth is that there are a lot of hustlers out there, and we most all can become easy prey in

certain situations. When we do, we become less trusting of others. That’s a learned response, much like the reason we don’t put our hands on hot coals a second time. This might explain why the older that people are, the more cynical they seem to become. Maybe they have been burned more. Hustled more. Cheated more. Chalk it up to experience. But doesn’t everyone deserve a second chance? Maybe. That’s a roll of the dice and depends on how much of a gambler you are. Meanwhile, the world might be a better place if we could all be a bit more trusting — at least the first time. Thanks for reading.
