Be Seen as Someone That Can Be Counted On

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.”

Thomas Jefferson 1743 - 1826, a Foundering Father, Principal

Author of the Declaration of Independence, Third President

 of the United States   



As I see it. . . . . . . .

Be seen as someone that can be counted on


People will gravitate to an honest person . . . . and disassociate from those that they don’t trust.


In the business world . . . . the customer has many choices.  They have a large selection of people to choose from and to do business with. Customers they will choose the person that best fits their needs.


Customers want to work with low risk providers. They want someone that they can trust . . . . and they see as being honest. They also want a person to deliver on their promises . . . . and to make the business relationship as smooth as possible. Customers also want . . . .  successful results in their business relationships.


Customers do business by the process of elimination, they will elimination those who do not meet their expectation of a business professional. They will not do business with people or companies . . . . that they consider dishonest . . . .  unethical . . . . or will not fill full their needs.


The customer wants to do business with a person that’s honest . . . . and with good reputation.


In reality, the customer is looking out for their best interest . . . . and will select a professional that they feel has their best interest at heart. They want a professional to work with them that they have confidence in . . . .  and one that they see as being honest and with integrity.


A professional has to differentiate themselves from the competition . . . .  and one of the differentiators is in how people see you.  Be seen as a person that’s sincere . . . . honest . . . . and with integrity and you will differentiate yourself.


A person is measured by their honesty and integrity . . . . That measurement will separate you in your professional . . . . and you will be seen as someone that can be counted on . . . . and to do business with.

You are so right.  We all tend to get labels at some point in our lives and being the person that others can count on is a good label to have.
