Trust is earned through many small actions over time. Dr. Brené Brown’s marble jar story about her 3rd-grade daughter exemplifies this principle. Brené shared this story about trust during one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sessions in 2017. Click here to hear the story; we recommend watching 1:37 through 6:29 (but you just might decide to watch the whole thing once you get going).

Do you have marble jar friends? What did they do to earn marbles? (Our bet is that your answer to the second question reinforces Dr. Brown’s proposition that trust is built in many small, seemingly insignificant moments that add up over time!).
