“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” – Albert Einstein

A lot of us talk a great deal, but talk they say is cheap. At the beginning of the year, we are all pumped up about all the goals we will achieve in the year. Still, as the day goes by, we begin to renege on the promise we made to ourselves; we do this because of a lack of deciding what we really want and a lack of commitment and the integrity to follow through.

When it is time to execute, we do not follow through with relentless work habit, when you honour your word, you build pride and joy for yourself and respect from other others, but if you do not honour your words, you begin to lose pride and also lose respect from others. I am a firm believer in showing and not telling, let your results speak for you: Your Results would cancel the Insults. If you say you will do something, go ahead and do it: Honour your Word.
