Truth and Honesty…

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

According to Wikipedia encyclopedia, Honesty is the human quality of communicating and acting truthfully related to truth as a value. This includes listening, and any action in the human repertoire, such as body language and tone used while speaking. The meaning of the word truth extends from honesty, good faith, and sincerity.
Honesty means simply stating facts and views as best one truly believes them to be. It includes both honesty to others, and to oneself and about one’s own motives and inner reality. Dishonesty, at times, has the ability to cause misfortune to the person who displayed it.
Isn’t it interesting that we judge ourselves by our intentions and judge others by their actions. Now go seize the day with truth and honesty!

You can do anything if you make a commitment…

One of my favorite authors, Ken Blanchard, wrote, “There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” What a profound concept. How many times in our lives do we say we are committed when we truly are not? If something that we wanted to happen did not happen, and we reexamine our motives and internal thoughts, we might find that we truly were definitely interested in the outcome, but truly not committed.
