ARE YOU A PERSON OF YOUR WORD?
We must be one in what we say and what we do. Are you? I wasn’t always this way and I had to learn to master this area of my life if I really wanted to succeed in a substantial way.
Why is this important? If we are not people who keep our words and do what we say we will do, we will surely lose the respect of others and eventually of ourselves.
Our self respect in large part is based on our actions and words. They must be in harmony. No one can succeed on a long term basis without this key element in their lives.
Do you know people that you know you cannot count on based on your experience with them? They talk the talk but do not walk the walk. I have been led astray by a lot of people who fall in this category and I have only myself to blame. I have learned to allow people only two chances. The first time it’s my fault, the second time their fault, and there is no third time.
As we progress in life we will continually come in contact with people that will prove to be essential in our long term success and we must be perceived as people that can be trusted to do what they say they will do.
It not only shows respect for people but it demonstrates that you can be counted on when the going gets tough. True success in life is being true to yourself at all times.
Be one in word and spirit!
