The trends and patterns of your actions reflect your sincerity, honesty, and authenticity. You must be a person of substance, not simply image. Your outward behavior must truly express your internal character. Seek to convey truth in all human interactions. Guard against unintentionally misleading others to meet your personal wants and needs. Present your credentials accurately. In effecting change, avoid manipulating the fear and confusion of others—base your suggestions and recommendations on facts and evidence. When you offer practical or emotional support, consider your offer a commitment or obligation. Walk the talk, follow through, and fulfill your promises. People will then see and hear the real you.
Ask yourself: Am I genuine in all aspects of my life?
