Speak Truth

No one got very far by speaking a lie. Telling the truth often means taking responsibility, as opposed to using a little white lie to shirk fault or blame. Take responsibility, even if it hurts (and trust me, it will probably hurt). One of the only things that follows you no matter where you go – from job to job, from church to church, from school to school – is your integrity. One of the best things you can do to preserve your integrity is to always tell the truth.

No one knows better than me how hard it can be to tell the truth. This is a constant struggle for me. Almost as if my natural reaction is to lie. But if you fight through, the result is rewarding.
