Don't Stretch The Truth For It Snaps

Never stretch the truth for it will snap back and hurt you. Tell it like is it is. Do the right thing right from the very beginning. You have to bear in mind that your life will be in direct proportion to your commitment to truth, regardless of what you choose to do. It takes less time to do something right than it does to explain why you did it wrong. Remember there is no right way to do the wrong thing. Orison Marden said it right, "There is an infinite difference between a little wrong and just right."

Don't Stretch The Truth For It Snaps

You have to be honest to be excellent in what you do. Those who are given to white lies will soon become color-blind. When you stretch the truth, beware of it because it will snap back! Always remind yourself this: a lie has no legs to support itself. Meaning that a lie requires more lies to sustain itself. How about half-truth? Well who knows you might only be able to get ahold of the wrong half. So?

Be honest and you will propel yourself towards greater height in no matter what you do. But each time you like, even those so-called little white lies, you are actually burying yourself deeper into the ground. Nobody can control your character. They say the measure of a person's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out. How about you?

You never stop being honest. It's like you are competing in an ironman event with no finish line. "He that is good will infallibly become better, and he that is bad will as certainly become worse; for vice, virtue, and time are three things that never stand still," reminded Charles Caleb Colton. Please be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. Always be honest folks!

Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny!
