“A Promise Made Is A Debt Unpaid.”

Integrity is promise made promise kept. If you say one thing and do another, you have broken your promise.

If you want to live a great life, always do what you say you will do. People will trust you. People will want to be with you. People will always tell you their secrets. People will nominate you for a leadership position, because they know you will not let them down.

Robert W. Service said, “A promise made is a debt unpaid.” There is respect in doing what you say you will do. There is trust in doing what you say you will do. Don’t promise A, and do B. People will not trust you. Once you lose your trust, you can’t really do anything of value on your own. You need people to help you succeed. No one succeeds alone.

“Wall your talk.” Do what you say you will do, and people will be ready to help you do it.
