Your Word Is Law
YOUR WORD IS LAW. VALUE IT AND UNDERSTAND HOW POWERFUL THIS CAN BE IN YOUR LIFE.
First, don't people please!
Don't even think of this concept, made fashionable lately. Really, it's just an excuse to be DISHONEST in your relationships.
Is it easier to tell a white lie than, to be honest? Say yes at the time only to change it later when you can text to say no. And I hear it all the time, "I was just people-pleasing," like THAT's okay.
You're lying, excusing and rationalizing your lies. Worse, you're hurting yourself and your relationships. If you can't trust yourself, if you can't be honest, if you can't be authentically you, then you will always remain stuck and small.
#FYE (F**k YOUR EXCUSES)
Stand up and don't shy away, take the risks, become challenged, be uncomfortable and be true to yourself and value your word and actions. Once you do this, you become an authentic and trustworthy person.
Do you want to feel good about yourself, have great self-esteem? Then do esteemable acts. Embracing responsibility, acting like an adult and doing what is right are all esteemable acts. And trust me, your relationships will deepen and become more loving and accepting and freeing.
BEING THERE FOR YOURSELF ALLOWS YOU TO COMPLETELY BE THERE FOR OTHERS.
It may be easier to skirt around an interaction you find challenging, but once you learn to treat your word as law, to be authentic, to be honest, and to take the risks to be brave in your relationships, you'll be an example of integrity for those around you. You can't give away what you don't have.
START WITH INTEGRITY. YOUR WORD IS LAW.
