If you were to ask the person working next to you "What would it take for you to trust God?" What answer would they give? A typical answer might be "I would trust God if he showed me undeniable proof he exists." Another answer might be "I would trust God if he gave me (insert the thing I really want)." Not many, if any, would answer "I would start trusting God if he took away my power, wealth and status." But in this part of Daniel, being humbled by God is exactly what leads to faith in him.
