#109: Are Your Pants On Fire?
3 days ago
Can you whip off a white lie and not even blink? Do you commit to events or meetings and then bail? If your word is your bond, is yours crazy glue or sticky tack? If this got you feeling a bit cringe worthy, then take a seat.
I did a poll a few years ago to find out what people thought of me. I was happily surprised to find that the top 3 consistent words were: Loyal, Trustworthy and Honest. Sounds boring to some but to me it was music to my ears. I broke a fibbing habit by age 24 that most people probably weren't aware of and have spent the rest of my days making sure that those 3 words are what I'm known for.
If you think lying won't bite you in the ass at some point, you need to stop kidding yourself. And if you are over the age of 18, you need to grow up. Liars suck. I have stopped being friends and won't do business with people who prove to be liars. Even fibbers and story stretchers go on the shit list.
My advice? Take a listen and see if your honesty habits need a tune up. If so, AWESOME! Get off your butt and make a commitment to a clean slate of honesty. If you listened and said Bah! I will never get got. Well karma can be a card carrying bitch my friend and I suggest you keep one eye opener for all the people you've screwed over.
