But, when I hear about students cheating in class or paying someone to take their tests for them so that they can earn a degree and even get a title; it concerns me. Would you trust a doctor or someone that has to take care of you personally or financially that really doesn't know what they are doing? They just have a title that says that they do know what they are doing. That is scary.
Not only scary, but a sad situation that people have come to accept more often then we would like to believe. I think this is also true of anyone that would be in the position to help you or work with you. How can a distributor help you if they are unwilling to learn and study before they impart their wisdom to you? Do you feel comfortable following a distributor that only pretends to know something and just spouts out their beliefs and information without checking to make sure that that information is correct? Or to get you all motivated with nothing to support you?
While this may not be a dangerous situation as it would be with entrusting yourself to a doctor or lawyer, it would be disappointing, discouraging, and a lack of trust in that person. We expect the help that we are seeking from someone that we can follow and trust.
Would you be less apt to follow someone if you caught them lying to you or making off the cuff statements just so they sound like they know something or to make themselves look good?
How do we determine if someone is a person of trust and knowledge? That is the thought for the day.
Talk to you later.
