No matter how good your intent is, what you do is what adds to your credibility and not what you intend to do. Because, people see your actions and hear your words, not your intentions or thoughts. Having good intentions alone isn’t enough to build your reputation and guard your heart, but to keep your promises, stay true to your word, stick to your values and beliefs, and be authentic and yourself is what it takes to protect your credibility in daily life and remain reliable.
Personal credibility is an important factor that affects your relationships, career, goals, and quality of life. It has an influence on your soul and can make or break you from within. Credibility flows from one’s character and is an essential aspect of personality. Making self-awareness a priority and adapting to situations without compromising one’s integrity nurtures credibility, making self-improvement a part of life. As we are aware, there are no perfect people, but there are credible people who learn from their mistakes and grow in wisdom and integrity.
At times, it becomes necessary to push ourselves to adhere to what we believe in and not get influenced by the easy road that doesn’t look harmful, but is definitely not going to convince our conscience. Have you been through situations, where you had an option to take the easier road or stick to your integrity? Although the wrong option is appealing, reminding yourself of what you believe in saves you from regretting your choice and losing your credibility. It makes you stronger and helps others to look up to you.
Personal credibility depends on your approach to situations, challenges, people, and life. Have your mistakes taught you important life lessons and led to self-improvement? Did a difficult but right path that you chose make you resilient and successful? Cultivating credibility and not giving up when you feel vulnerable, builds your reputation and gives you a sense of worth.
