An article in Psychology Today points to five strategies:

  1. generosity
  2. patience and flexibility
  3. reliability
  4. consistency
  5. openness

Learning means giving yourself to what you learn, and it requires a generous heart.

Learning means being patient toward your failures and flexible to overcome challenges.

Learning means relying on others as others rely on your dedication to the process.

Learning means being consistent and show up every time.

Learning opens your mind to new possibilities and keeps your mind open to the novelty of unexpected patterns.

So, you see, when you learn, you use the five strategies which build trust. But it also means something more. The new skills or knowledge you have after learning will open new horizons, thus, giving hope when it is most needed.
