Happy Promise Day to all Lets follow some of the good practices defined by some great thought leaders..

Trust is central to PROMISES… trust that we can be taken at our word… trust that today’s “Yes” will not become tomorrow’s “No”… trust that we will meet the expectation with fulfillment.

If we offer something to someone, it is generosity. If someone takes it from us without permission, it is theft. If we make PROMISES, it is now our responsibility… there is an obligation on our part. If we renege on our word, it is tantamount to theft, because not only are we taking back our words, we are taking away the fulfillment attached to the promise, which leads to others being Disappointed in us.

A Good Practice: Write your PROMISES on the calendar as an Appointment… then make sure you show up for your appointment on time.

Promises are great, if they are kept; broken promises bring disappointments and hurt. The only thing we have is our words; a man and his word have to be the same or else he is a liar.

Godly, honorable people keep their PROMISES.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen…
