How reliable are you? When you give your word to do something, can others count on you to show up, even if it is more difficult than you expected? When you experience unexpected difficulties, do you use them as excuses for not following through? Can your family and friends count on you to show up for them, even in the toughest of times? Do you graciously but firmly turn down invitations that distract you from following through on your commitments?
If you can be only one thing, be reliable. It is more valuable than talent or intelligence. The way we do anything is the way we do everything. Be faithful in little things, as well as big things. Commit to excellence in all that you do. A reliable person is truthful and can be trusted to keep their word. Do you want to be highly successful? Be a person who shows up.
