Credibility Is A Thing
Credibility is a thing
It speaks to how believable you are
How much you can be relied upon.
It speaks to whether someone can take you at your word
Whether they can buy into your story
Whether what you have to offer has some substance.
Words are just words, until we give them meaning
And meaning depends on what we do with them.
Without the conviction to back your words with actions
Without following up and following through
Words are just that, words.
Just meaningless uttering and noise.
Sounds we blurt out.
Just things we say to make ourselves feel better
To convince ourselves of something
Nothing more, nothing less
Lost in the void.
Until one day, we start to believe our own lies.
If you lose your credibility, you’ve got nothing left
Because your good name is wrapped up in it
And your good name is all you have, it's how you'll be remembered.
And it speaks to your integrity.
If you want to be taken seriously in life
By yourself and by others
Then you might want to have a rethink
A rethink about how credible you actually are
Then based on your reflections,
You know what you need to do.
So do it.
