Keeping Promises Makes You Happier

promisesWhen you keep your promises, people learn to trust and respect you, and that makes you a happier person. It gives you a boost to prove to the world that you care and that you’re reliable. When you break a promise it signifies to others that you can’t be counted on or that you don’t value them. Breaking a promise ultimately disrespects you because the after-effects can harm your self-image and self-esteem.
Concrete promises are easier to keep, so set a clear goal and deadline with each promise that you make.*

The next time you’re struggling to keep a promise, instead of working on making up an excuse, work harder, sacrifice and persevere.

Express your love today!
