Professionalism is knowing how to do it, when to do it, and doing it.

Sincerity

If you agree too easily you will not be trusted. If you disagree too often you will not be believed.

When you strive to be seen as sincere, you most certainly will not be. For true sincerity is never the result of contrivance.

Let go of your need to impress others, and you will indeed be impressive. Let go of your concern for appearances, and you’ll be authentically sincere.

The way to be consistently believed is to always speak the truth. The way to be truly respected is to live the big moments and the small ones with integrity.

If you feel the need to hide the truth about what you are doing, it’s a good idea to seriously reconsider your intentions. Nothing gained by deception will ever be of any real value to you.

Say what you mean, be who you are, and do what you know is right. Live with sincerity, and the pathways you follow will be richly fulfilling.
