    Honesty
    To have positive and virtuous attributes such as integritytruthfulness, and straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. Furthermore, honesty means being trustworthy, loyalfair, and sincere.  Using tempered straight talk and striking at the roots can only be done with the foundation of honesty and integrity.

    This character is consistently fair in how others are assessed, how you assess yourself and how you assess your partner and the couple.


    Transparency
    People don’t trust what they cannot see. Making your life purposefully transparent builds trust in the couple.  The spirit of transparency is the first key in restoring trust says Stephen Covey of The Speed of Trust.  Can you be asked anytime where you are, who you’re with, where you’re going and what you are doing?   Be accountable for your actions, your reactions and your lack of action. Tell the truth and leave the right impression so that you cannot be misunderstood.  Make sure your actions accurately display your intentions. The counterfeit of transparent is illusion, making things appear different than they are.  Illusion is opaque while trust is transparent.

    Results
    Are you all talk or does your talk, lead to action?  Results build loyalty and loyalty breeds trust.  How long can your relationship run on a zero balance (Heart Bank)? When will you take serious action?  Are you going to wait until they’re ready to walk?  They are packing and you say "I didn’t know what happened?" Talk with no action is the illusionist at work.  If this is your habit, it will be hard to break BUT if you are interested in something spectacular you will take this on with full speed, never looking back.

    Reverence
    The couple is honored to be together, grateful to be in one another’s lives.  This trust builder is about making certain your partner comes first and knows it.  You continually are unwilling to risk diminishing trust.  The actions you take continue building trust between you.  Reverence creates mutual satisfaction and drops “I” for “We”.  The couple holds each other in high regard.  The couple reveres in each other.
