heard my parents say many times growing up that “ you are as good as your word” and the older i have gotten the more I see how true that saying is. If you are honest that shows others that you meet in your life that you can be trusted. Thomas Jefferson stated that "Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” Meaning that is one of the first traits out of a personality perspective, to have.
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echos are truly endless.” Mother Teresa. Words hold so much power, so much more than realized. But just as words can be used for building character and creating inspiration, they can also be used as weapons to cause anger and pain. Words can provoke, calm or inspire any person to do good - or to do bad.
Another example of me being communicating well is once I found my friend Maniac is a buffalo pen at the zoo late at night in the west side of town. I had to convince him to come home. This is what I told him “ you do not have a choice. I am not asking you. I’m telling you. You are coming home with me, and you are going to sleep in my room, which is going to be your room- and I don’t care if you sleep on the floor or the windowsill or what-but you are going to sleep there and not here.” As you can see I am talking to Maniac about the fact that he will come with me and that he will not sleep in the buffalo pen. I spoke clearly stated my claim and told him what needed to be done. His shows that if I need something to get done I will communicate with the person. Finally I think I’m communicative because in my life I have probably gone through many stages. One of these stages was taking baths with my brothers. When I finally grew out of it I had to tell them, communicate with them. This is what happened “ Then came a day when Amanda entered fourth grade, and she decided she was getting too old to tub it with her little brother and sister.” This shows that Amanda decided to communicate with her
First of all, you should not make promises you can’t keep, for example in the book the “Glass Castle”. Rex walls is a very intelligent man who promises his children Jeannette and Lori a castle made entirely of glass making of it his ideal dream. Thus, Rex tells his children to dig a hole in the ground so they could start saving money for the castle. However, Rex starts wasting his money on alcohol and filling the hole with trash. In
The power of words can be the difference of a happy ending to the start of a War.

It’s happened to us all, we have said something that didn’t come out right. When, this happens the words that spill out do not represent your message. Instead the person or people the words are directed to may be offended or worse. This is an example where I was placed in this exact position.
I almost never make promises, I’m always afraid I might break them. However, I’ve made one promise I will forever keep, always try my absolute best.
The PROMISE project is based on proven core components that have been successful in helping youths with disabilities reach their goals. The project seeks to provide students with services at age 14, when the IEP is developed. This way students have an IEP team that guides them to reach their goals. The difference between PROMISE and other past research is its partnership between state, local and federal agencies and integrating the family into the success of the child. This collaborative effort has proven successful in helping students reach vocational and post-education goals.
Cole Kilboy English 9 Volpi 29 Mar. 2017 The Price of Honesty Honesty is truly the best policy. Merriam-Webster defines honesty as being, “free of deceit and untruthfulness; sincere.” Some people view honesty as the foremost virtue in a trustworthy person. However, this world is tainted with many who deceive others to be revered, although when you turn around they will be divergent from your views typically lying to benefit themselves at the expense of your state. A common term for these people is a “fake” person or a “snake”. It is remarkably difficult to find a truly honest man, and when found, many are taken advantage of. This is often because some view them as a doormat who they use simply to get rumors, gossip, or information they need.
When a new technology is created there are two distinct parties who define whether it is full of promise or peril: the creator and those who are affected by the creation. The definition used by each party varies massively on the technology that was developed. The creator of a new technology is often the first person to determine whether or not it will bring peril to society. In almost every case, the technology is constructed with the intentions of promise, bringing a net benefit to society.
Many people do not realize that what they have said has even insulted anyone. It is important to always give the other person the benefit of the doubt by asking them, "This is what I heard you say. Is that what you meant?" (Cole 312). Communication is not a mastered art; therefore, there is assuredly room for misunderstandings. Mr. Strong says, "The key is to continue the dialogue, hear the other person's concerns, and point out your own" (qtd. in Cole 313). Furthermore, continuing the dialogue allows time for clearing up any miscommunications that may have occurred. It's always a good idea to give people a chance to explain themselves before falsely
When you think of the american promise, what do you think of ? Some would say it’s a promise of peace, freedom, liberty of speech Etc.

And like most people i would say it's a promise of freedom, equality, peace Etc.
Stott’s article was very insightful because he used Abraham as an example in his writing. He talked about God making a promise to Abraham and his wife. God told Abraham that “he was going to be a father of many nations.” Even though Abraham was unable to see the fruition of the promise. God was faithful to fulfill his promise. As Christian we must have faith that God will fulfill his promise, but he may not accomplish the promise on a person’s timetable. Stott talked about God being a keeper of his covenant and one who will pour out his blessing. When one is in fellowship with God, the benefits are promises from God and blessings.
Research shows that many of us don’t follow through on the goals we set or don’t keep the promises and commitments we make to ourselves. When we repeatedly fail to make and keep commitments to ourselves, it hacks away at our self-confidence. This lack of self trust undermines our ability to trust others.
