RULE 25: If You Don’t Trust Someone, Don’t Do Business With Them

Chief (Mrs.) Alake Oshun, Real Estate Expert
It’s such a
simple rule: we don’t do business with people we don’t trust. What more is
there to say? Apart from that this also includes companies, corporations,
governments, you name it. And why don’t we trust them? Because there is
something adrift, something that rings that little warning bell inside us.
There may be clear visible signs but as often as not there won’t be. Mostly
this rule is about using your intuition, listening to your inner voice.

If you feel
something, anything, is wrong; then walk away. Listen to what is being said to
you. There are unconscious clues your subconscious is picking up. If you ignore
them you’ll invariably regret it. I’ve done it. We’ve all done it. I nearly did
it again the other day. I nearly bought a car from a dodgy dealer. I knew he
was dodgy but I wanted the car. I knew the car would be dodgy.
What is it that
makes us overwrite all the warning signs? I did the only sensible thing – I
phoned a friend. And he talked me out of it. Good man.

 “If you don’t trust your boss, don’t work for
them.’ ‘If you don’t trust your child minder, don’t leave your kids with them.’
‘If you don’t feel comfortable with your financial adviser, get another. ….If
it waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck, chances are it’s a duck. Avoid.
Walk away. Hold on to your wallet and run”.

You can extend
this rule to cover loads of situations such as ‘If you don’t trust your boss,
don’t work for them.’ ‘If you don’t trust your child minder, don’t leave your
kids with them.’ ‘If you don’t feel comfortable with your financial adviser,
get another.’
Look, you can choose
what you do and how you do it but if you want to be a Rules Player then you
need to be assertive. Stand up for what you know is right; don’t accept second
best – ever. Listen to your intuition, be the biggest, boldest and bravest. If
the situation feels wrong, it probably is. If you don’t get the right feelings
about a person you are dealing with, find a way out.
If it waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck,
chances are it’s a duck. Avoid. Walk away. Hold on to your wallet and run.
