Be True to Your Word

  [The things you can make with duct tape! This is a flower pen that my friend gave to me]

We make intentions and goals throughout the year or at the beginning of our birthday’s and it’s good to let other people that you are on a pathway to improving your self. Being true to your word is very important and establishes your credibility of being a reliable and responsible person. I know in my teenage years, I feared a lot of the intentions I set out for myself, I always used the phrases, “next time” or my favorite, “what if?” I must admit, if I executed such big decisions, my life would be completely different from what it is now. I am truly grateful for where I am at my life right now but I realized that I never executed what I said I was going to do.

These days, I try my best to stick to my word and to make the best decisions before announcing them. It’s definitely a great characteristic to be that person who sticks to his/her word.

So here are my tips on how to stick to your word:

1. Tell someone close to you that you are going to do X, Y and Z and make sure that that person is one who sticks to their own word as well.

2. Write or type  your intention/goal  somewhere you always check or see. For example:  On your cellphone notes or calendar, note it down to put some time and effort to your intentions/goals.

3. Set a reminder on your phone to put some time and energy to your task and make sure you don’t dismiss that reminder.

4. Be grateful that you are able to accomplish that task and use that gratefulness to execute what you need to do.

5.  Visualize that you have already accomplished the task when you first create a new intention/goal. Do this by closing your eyes for a few seconds and picture yourself already completing the task in an easy and effective manner. This will allow the universe to see that you have set forth the message and the universe will provide if you execute in a timely manner.

Hope these tips help!

  1. LOVELY pen…the rose is beautiful! Who knew duct tape could do such exquisite a thing?! Each year I do set some new goals or intentions. I write them down and I do periodic check-in’s to keep on track, as well as making notes on my calendar for some goals. Visual helps me help me get closer to the reality. Happy Days, Kim :o)

  2. Now that I’m part of a group of men who are committed to keeping their word, it is striking to me how often people will say that they’re going to do something and then not do it, and how this creates a subtle distrust in the relationship that builds up over time. I also see how much I want relationships with a strong foundation of trust.

  3. At work, we remind each other of DWYSYWD.

    It’s a leadership practices that simply stands for … Do What You Say You Will Do.

    It’s a big deal when it comes to building credibility. The people that are good at it, are good at saying “No,” to things they won’t do, so they can say “Yes” to things they’ll stick to.
