One can believe you if you are believable. And, why would anyone believe you? It is only because you’ve earned credibility, right? Absolutely! Being credible is central to success. Words and actions have to work in tandem and when they do people start trusting you with their worldly possessions and even life.
Relationships are based on trust and they flourish if bond of honesty and transparency gets built. Our kids need to learn that integrity and commitment are core to life and its success. One of the ways to do is to make them see the credibility you enjoy and the entitlement it gets for you. Kids need direction and motivation, they need introduction to values and at times a nudge.
