It makes a big difference to be known as someone who follows through versus someone who doesn't. It makes you credible. Many people want credible pay for services, but do not want to complete the tasks in front of them. If you are to have sustainable success, look at the fruits you have produced. Whether you have kept your agreement(s) more often than not, is usually a direct reflection of how good your word is with others and yourself.
Of course, there are times in life where you can't keep your word. When you are not able to keep an agreement you have made, communicate it to the individual(s) with whom you made the agreement. Be honest about the reason(s) why and most individuals will understand.
Often, the ability to keep your word is more important than the level of skill and talent you have when it comes to your ability to succeed in your chosen field.
Therefore, keep your word because our words are bonded to us in the physical and spiritual realm.
Until next time...
