Honesty or truthfulness is a facet of moral character that connotes positive and virtuous attributes, such as integrity, truthfulness, and openness including clarity of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. Honesty also involves being reliable, trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere.
No one likes lies. But, unfortunately, being dishonest with others and ourselves is sometimes easier than telling the truth. It doesn’t need to be that way, though. Learning to be honest and eliminating the need for lies can help to clean up your conscience and your relationships. Shifting your perspective slightly and orienting yourself to a policy of honesty can help you to eliminate the need for lies and make it more attractive, to tell the truth.
Honesty combines integrity, reliability, and a positive attitude.
There are many characteristics of someone being an honest person. Some of them are explained below:
Honesty and Integrity
Albert Einstein Said, “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters”.
It is always best, to tell the truth than to be caught in a lie. Once you are known as someone whose word cannot be trusted it is very difficult to overcome. One value the other who maintains a sense of honesty and integrity. Good relationships are built on trust. Everyone wants to know that they can trust what you say and what you do.
Reliability is defined as the probability that a product, system, or service will perform its intended function adequately for a specified period, or will operate in a defined environment without failure. Reliability goes hand in hand with the degree of consistency of a measure. A test will be reliable when it gives the same repeated result under the same conditions.
A positive attitude is not just about sporting that smiles on your face every time, it is more than that. It is about maintaining that optimistic mindset and attitude even when things are in utter chaos. It is often said that what a good or bad diet does to your body, positive and negative thoughts do the same to your mind! Feed your mind with positive thoughts and you will see amazing changes around you.
