Principles of Leadership, Day 25

Do you mean what you say? Read Matthew 5:37.

Words matter. When we think about the words that we say every single day, sometimes we can get carried away with what we say. We often think that a quantity of words means the same thing as having quality of words. However, when it comes to the commitments that we make and the promises that we give, we are to be so consistent with our follow through that simply telling someone yes we will do that is the strongest commitment we could make.

People need to believe our words. They need to trust that when we say we’ll do something, we will. Part of the mark of a great leader is their ability to be people of their word. Do you keep your word? If you say you’re going to do something, do you do it? Do you trust and believe yourself when you make a promise to yourself? If you can’t believe yourself, no one else will believe you either. Be someone who does what they say they’re going to do today.
