Losers tend to distrust only those who have shown themselves to be untrustworthy. Whereas winners tend to trust only those who have shown themselves to be trustworthy. No-one should access your trust in advance. It’s not a question of credit. Do not look upon ‘trust’ and ‘distrust’ as expression of ‘like’ and ‘dislike’. Do not see distrust as an insult. by endeavouring other people;’s limits, supreme leaders leave nothing to chance. Distrust is your sensible shield that stops you from having to pay the price for someone else’s frailties.
