To achieve greater success in life, one of the fundamental values a person has to possess is:
There was a quote saying (Mark Twain):
"To hide a lie, a thousand lies are needed.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
What happens is that when a person lies, the other person listening to the story would 75% of the time be able to tell if that person is speaking the truth, through their facial expression, gesture, and speech and text regularity.
When a person is recognised in possessing strong moral values in handling every matter, trust can then be built, and that person will eventually become a trusted brand (to work with) to anyone.
And Oprah Winfrey once said:
"Real Integrity is doing the right thing knowing
that nobody is going to know whether you did it or not."
A. Does the listener's facial expression look doubtful while listening?
B. Did most listener probe for more details with numerous questions?
C. Is there any reduction of people wanting to work with you?
D. Is there anyone avoiding communication with you?
If your answers are NO to the above questions, Congratulations on being a people person! You are one step nearer to being successful with the recognition from people around you!
The next step you can consider taking is to start creating impact by sharing your values with your peers and closed ones!
If your answer is YES to any of the questions above, it could also be due to multiple reasons such as:
That is their default expression when they are listening.
They could be curious to understand more, and it is nothing personal.
They could be occupied with their own work and they trust that you are able to handle things yourself.
They could be too busy to communicate.
If your answers are YES to more than 3 of the above questions:
No matter which point you are at right now, there is still time to create positive changes in your life.
Keep persevering and you will soon see the positive impact on your life!
