Trust: Post #5--Money, Power, Trust
Money, Power and Trust: More money can make us feel like we don’t need others; thus, we become less trustworthy because we don’t have to worry about the future relationship with such people. Power’s the same. Not needing people can make you look at them as expendable. Power is a drug that can make you a better liar because it holds sway over people. But it can backfire—ask any politician who has strayed from trust. Also, avoid focus on money; it makes us selfish. Abundance can make you feel like you don’t need others, and you are more likely to cheat or misuse them.
