This is a really cool video about shared values, and trust. Its 30 minutes, but worth every bit of your time (trust me). Key points I took from it include:
- Trust arises between people who have a set of common values.
- When you’re in a strange environment, you look for people with similar backgrounds and experiences, and you form strong bonds with them, and trust them. International students can easily understand this 🙂
- If you say and do what you believe, you will attract people who are like you, and they will ultimately trust you.
- Personal fulfillment is not about personal achievement, it comes from helping others.
I particularly liked the plane story (12:54) and how it demonstrates that we are more likely to help those whom we feel want to help us.
Enjoy, and share your thoughts! 🙂
