Honoring promises is high on my list of requirements in being a person of integrity. Basically, whenever someone fails to follow through on a promise (with the exception of giving a reasonable excuse for backing out on their word) it registers as a betrayal. Whenever I’ve had a promise made to me broken it has affected me adversely. If you’ve ever been stood up then you understand where I’m coming from. No one likes to be forgotten or dumped upon. Frankly, it hurts!  

How Good Are You At Your Word?  

Granted, people do have a right to “change their minds” from time to time. It is understandable that occasionally circumstances can arise after the fact that can make following through on commitments unfeasible. But, if you routinely renege on your promises or if on the flip side you are often the recipient of broken promises it is time to evaluate this pattern.  

Are You Too Demanding of Others?

If you are wondering whether or not you make too high of demands on the people in you life...

Ask Yourself:
Is your personality overtly forceful in dealing with others?
Do you take advantage of the people in your life who have difficulty saying no?
Do you feel your priorities should always come first?
Is it important for you to always have your way?

Please Keep Your Promises  

Don’t make promises you can’t keep. Broken promises hurt individuals and can erode relationships. Trustworthiness is too valuable of a characteristic to own... don’t give it away.
