Speak the truth

When you are at a loss for what to say, speak the truth. Truth is always your most powerful choice.

There is no way you can hide behind a lie for very long. Although the truth can be extremely difficult at times, it ages very well.

You don’t necessarily have to be rude or confrontational to speak the truth. You are fully capable of speaking the truth with respect, consideration, and understanding.

In fact, speaking the truth is one of the most respectful things you can do. People appreciate it, people remember it, and people remember you in a good light because of it.

The way to successfully deal with reality is truth. Anything else is at best a delusion that will eventually set you back.

Don’t let yourself be tempted to sidestep the truth. Speak the truth, and speak in everyone’s best interest.

— Ralph Marston
