“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”
Your reputation precedes you. What an accurate statement. Who we are; what we do and say; how we act – are reflections of the DNA of our character. It will either drive people to us or chase them away. Our behavior and actions – be they good or bad; positive or negative become the fibers of our character that ultimately determine our reputation. Thus, our reputation is earned….by us! It is our job to preserve it.
Be known for good things that are positive, truthful, genuine, respectful … be known as a person with a good reputation. It will precede you and follow you!
