Good impression

People remember what you do much more vividly than they remember what you say. If you seek credibility, seek to establish that credibility with your actions and not just your words.

Relationships are not built on mere pronouncements. Valuable relationships grow from shared experiences, reliability, consistency and truthfulness.

The way to be believed next time, is to do what you say you’ll do this time. The way to gain trust is to earn it by being always trustworthy in matters large and small.

The key to making a good impression is to live with authenticity, honesty, genuine compassion and generosity. People form their impressions not on how you appear, but on how well you treat them.

To make a good impression, be valuable, be useful and be original. Be truly interested and willing to make a difference.

The way to consistently look good is to be good, and honest and helpful. Love life and all who live it, put that love into action, and you’ll always make a great impression.
