When was the last time you lied?
When you choose to have a caring mindset, you are making a choice to tell the truth, regardless of how painful that truth may be. You need to embrace being honest, open and being straightforward and you need to do this in every conversation and every interaction at the office, at home, with friends and family, as well as strangers.
You know the expression: the truth will set you free.
Being truthful and honest is critical when it comes to having a caring mindset, and the caring mindset is the difference between failure and success. It leads to more healthy organizations, families and communities.
Lying has severe consequences. If you take credit for someone else’s work, you’re lying. That lying will cause people in your organization to under-perform, leave the organization, or even sabotage future projects.
When was the last time you lied? Be honest about your answer.
