Trust begins with trusting in yourself. When we talk about working with others, we are talking about working with ourselves to begin with. If we are ready to work with others, it doesn’t matter who comes along in our world. You might be working with somebody who is completely untrustworthy, but that doesn’t matter. We are going to help others, regardless of their workability. You have to work hard to help others.
