Another beautiful Monday morning! Time for our weekly personal reflection exercise!
One thing that is very, very important to me is trust – being able to trust others AND others being able to trust ME. And while I have no control over the words and actions of others, I can strive to be the very best person that I can be by determining to hold on to my values and my integrity.
A huge part of that is centered around trustworthiness. Honestly, if you truly care about someone, you simply must be truthful with them. Keeping your word is of utmost importance and lying would be out of the question if you sincerely cared about the well-being of another.
Being trustworthy is an act of love towards the people that you deal with. Trust is a very fragile thing and it should be handled very carefully. With that being said…
Here are some affirmations and reflection questions that you can incorporate into your own personal reflection time today:
As I get myself ready for the day, I reflect on the values that matter to me the most. I want to be kind, accepting, and caring toward others. I work to show initiative and honesty.
To be trustworthy is to step forward and show a sense of duty and honest conduct. I feel obliged to do whatever I say I am going to do.
Taking responsibility for my words and actions helps me to be trustworthy.
I own up to errors as soon as I realize I make them. If I misunderstand a situation, I acknowledge it. I apologize when I recognize I am wrong. I take these corrective steps as soon as possible because I want others to see my trustworthiness.
I take great pride in my trustworthiness.
It pleases me to know that others believe me. I strive to be trustworthy because it is a personal characteristic that I find important.
Today, I take responsibility for my behaviors, comments, and obligations to others. I know I can show myself and the world that I have a strong character and can be trusted. When I put forth an effort to be trustworthy, my rewards in life are great.
1. Am I trustworthy?
2. What does it mean to me to be trustworthy?
3. If my actions ever come into question, how can I regain the trust of others?
