Life Skills: Is Trustworthiness Our Legacy?

word of month character
Teaching character and life skills to students

One of the differences between one who reaches their goals and has a successful career and life and those that do not is in this quality of trustworthiness.  Those who consistently tell the truth, keep promises, keep secrets, do not cheat, follow the rules, do the right thing because it is the right thing to do and are accountable for the mistakes they make – achieve success in all parts of their life.

Those who choose to do otherwise may gain some short term successes, but in the long run their success will be very shallow and they will create a legacy of not being trustworthy.  Teaching our children about trustworthiness is not just what we talk about, but mainly about what we demonstrate with our actions.
