Your World Is Your Word

Michelle (I have changed her name) first appeared to be a sincere and eager seeker of her own stable and secure future. She had downloaded the free eBook that I offer, had read it and had taken the initiative to email me her three deepest reasons for needing to succeed in her network marketing business. I take the sharing of such WHYs as a great honor. She impressed me very much and I was optimistic about our fledgling business relationship.

That’s why I was so taken back by her cancellation again and was moved to ask her a simple question: “Do you think with all that’s going on in the world right now there is one simple explanation for it?” She said she didn’t think there was.

I begged to differ and told her, “The reason there is so much turmoil in the world right now, so much contention right here in our country between political parties, so much anger from the populace is because people don’t keep their word anymore. It is that simple. If members of Congress and parliaments kept to their duties, if presidents and prime ministers kept to their promises, if business leaders and employees kept to their agreements, how different would the world be right now?”

I continued. “Michelle, no matter how hard you work, no matter what skills I am able to help you acquire, no matter how great your company is, if you don’t keep your word you won’t find the success you so deeply desire.”

It is THAT simple. And if you believe that she keeping her word, or you and I keeping our word, is inconsequential, well I’ll end with the words of the master, Mohandas Gandhi:

“As Human Beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the Atomic Age – as in being able to remake ourselves.”
