Embrace the Truth

Today we enjoy a wonderful calm. We don’t worry about what we said last week, last month, or even this morning. Whatever we do, we trust in the truth, and that makes our path easy. Do we suffer consequences? Of course we do, but they are immediate, so we deal with them and move on. If you get nothing else here, understand this: The consequences of trusting the truth are always minuscule compared to the consequences of not trusting the truth.

How do you achieve Clients First honesty? Trust the truth. How do you take this chance? There is a risk, after all. You don’t want to put your faith in something that will let you down. You don’t want the pain. Do you fear the truth? There are those who do. Don’t be one of them. Embrace the truth as if it were your lover. The truth will never betray you. Trust the truth and you will have a companion who will never disappoint you.

Begin today, right now. Think about your relationship with the truth. Ask yourself tough questions. Achieve honesty with yourself and then go on to others. This is your next step on the path to Clients First.

Start with the next person you see. See him or her as a person just like you. Do people want the truth any less than you? They want to trust. They need to trust. Be honest. Give them what they need. Give them the truth and you will be joined together in a bond that never betrays.
