Character is the cornerstone of trust. Before you can lead others, you must first manage yourself.

“Character is the cornerstone of trust. Before you can lead others, you must first manage yourself.” – Tim Kight

We all know and work with people who say the right things, but when events happen, when things get tough, they do the easy thing. None of us want to be “that person” who has strength of conviction, but weakness in actions.

We earn trust when people know, when they experience, both the depth of our values and the strength in our action. We inspire trust in others when they witness our values in the face of adversity and our behavior in times of stress. We even earn the respect of those with different opinions when we intentionally model our values in our daily lives.

Know your purpose . . . live it through your actions. Be intentional in actions and look at each event in your life as an opportunity to Step Up and Makes a Difference. Other will experience your character through your behavior.
