Be Honest (Week 4)

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” William Shakespeare All’s Well That End Well 

This post is not about how we interact with others but how we interact with ourselves. Honesty, like love, starts with self. It sets the foundation of who we are.

No legacy (1)To me, being honest with yourself is the same as being true to yourself. Staying your course, not settling, know your value – those are all aspects of being honest or true.

Being an entrepreneur, one of the most frequent tips that you receive is to NEVER devalue yourself. Once you lower your value, it’s hard to raise it back up again with that individual or the people in their circle. But that advice is just as pertinent in our personal lives.

When we settle, when we compromise, when we shelve our emotions, we are being dishonest and untrue to ourselves.

So every morning when you’re preparing for your day, take a moment to look at yourself, really look at yourself in the mirror. See the value in you, the uniqueness of you, how extraordinary you are. You, and only you, know your thoughts, your talents, your limitations, your strengths… and your true worth.

Be Honest with yourself – your wants, your dreams, your fears and your desires. Own them!

Be Honest and build your legacy on that honesty…

…and this above all, to thine own self be true.

    At the risk of repeating myself, again (ha!), this is really wonderful!

    Your posts have perfectly coincided with my life these past 4 weeks. So much so, that I am starting to think you are occupying your own space in my brain. 😉

    You are so right about knowing your own worth and making sure others do, too.

    Excellent post! (And I am not just saying that because it’s been personalized for me.) (I kid. I kid.) (kinda) 😀
