To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.

Choose truth

Sometimes the truth hurts. Those are the times when it helps you the most.

You can hide from certain truths for a long time, yet they will eventually catch up to you. Along with their clarity will come regret for staying in denial so long.

Seek to be told what is actually true rather than what you want to hear. The sooner you know and acknowledge a truth, the more power you have to successfully deal with it.

You’re not doing anyone a favor by hiding the truth. With respect, compassion, and understanding, speak the truth.

Truth has the power to create value where that value never existed before. Although truth is not the easiest choice, it is the most beneficial and positively transformative choice.

Have the courage to live with truth on your side. At every juncture, choose truth.
