“The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.” Elizabeth Gilbert
I love this quote by Elizabeth. Blight is most commonly referenced to plants and is caused by a fungi that made the leaves spot and curl. The leaves of course are vital to the health of the plant. When the leaves spot and curl it ultimately results in the plant growing sick and dying.
Building trust in the workplace is essential to building the culture of your dreams. We would do well to stop looking for “dream jobs” and instead start creating them.
You never know… perhaps the ultimate dream job may be helping others create and realize theirs. That is if they trust you enough to accept your help.
We don’t just need to trust our dreams…. we need trust just to have them.
