Make a Mark by Practicing Honesty

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

It’s been said that honesty is the best policy. When I was a kid my dad used to tell me that the most important thing in life is this: “say what you’ll do, and do what you say“. Society is rife with people who say one thing yet do another, particularly in the political world as evidenced by this campaign season. We see so many politicians making promises but few of them will keep those promises.

Honesty means backing up your words with solid action; it means telling the truth even when it’s not expedient for you. It means being a man or woman of your word – standing by your word! It means having solid character and integrity. It means being credible. It means not creating expectations you can’t fulfill. Honesty means making a mark that cannot be erased.
