“True success follows every right step.” – Orison Swett Marden
All successful relationships are based on trust. In the same way your clothes belie who you are, your char acter and reputation often precede you.
They are perhaps the most valuable assets in your professional career. You will most likely be evaluated based on your reputation and character.
If you want to get promoted, you must be truthful with others. Your word is your bond. Let your yes truly mean yes.
Nothing works wonders better than being dependable. When your employer knows they can count on you, it will go a long way in catapulting your career.
Another key characteristic is to be loyal. As William Shakespeare wrote, “To thine own self be true.” When you are loyal, you are showing you not only value yourself, but others too. Never compromise your integrity. It should be non-negotiable.
When you live by this code in your work life, you will have greater self-confidence and higher self-esteem. Because you will feel better about yourself, you will perform better and you will be promoted faster.
Action step: Apologize to every one that deserves it. Resolve to be a better person today.
