One of my biggest pet-peeves is when a man doesn’t stick to his word.
In this day and age, a man’s word means pretty much NOTHING.
For MOST men that is…
Years back, maybe.
Now… not so much.
You can talk a big game about how you want to do this and that…
You can talk about all of the big goals and commitments you have for yourself…
You can talk about your big WHY’s and your purpose for change…
You can talk about how you know you need to change and if you don’t, nasty things are going to happen…
And you can even talk about how bad you want it and how motivated you are to get going…
But, talking doesn’t get shit done my man.
Because at the end of the day, I can give two-shits about what you TALK about doing…
What I care about most are the ACTIONS you take to back up your talk.
The Actions PROVE Your Commitment.
Most guys these days aren’t truly serious.
Most guys have NO INTEGRITY.
It’s easy to make a promise then break it by disappearing and never following through with what they SAID they were going to do.
It’s easy to come up with some BS excuse or story to avoid the TRUTH…
I can’t tell you how many guys I’ve had a conversation within this past year who SAID they were committed, said they were ready to change, said they MUST change, but then FAILED to stay true to their word.
That’s being a LIAR.
That’s being FAKE.
That’s being a SCARED little boy.
It takes a MAN to own up to his word.
It takes a MAN to follow through.
And I’ll agree, it’s HARD to own up to your words.
It requires guts and a big set of balls, but here’s the TRUTH you need to understand…
When you break your word and don’t follow through on a commitment you made to someone else, you’re not hurting them, you’re hurting YOURSELF.
You’re not failing me…
You’re FAILING yourself and worse, you failing your FAMILY.
Because at the end of the day, you’re not lying to me…
You’re lying to the MAN in the MIRROR.
There’s a code that we live by within The Forged FATHER that makes and breaks a man’s overall progress.
That code is to LIVE A LIFE BUILT AROUND INTEGRITY.
Here’s what INTEGRITY’s definition is listed as:
- the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.”he is known to be a man of integrity”
- the state of being whole and undivided.
This just isn’t about being a nice person and always doing the right thing…
This isn’t just about NOT stealing, cheating, etc…
This is about upholding your fucking word.
If you SAY you’re going to do something, then DO IT.
And if you make a mistake and said you were going to do something and you’re NOT going to do it, then OWN UP and make it right.
Because the RIGHT thing is always the right thing.
Now I know most guys who get my emails probably just want “workouts” and “diet” tips and could give two-shits less about what I’m writing about now, but this stuff right here is much more important than all that.
Because at the end of the day, if you don’t have the INTEGRITY to follow through on your workouts and nutrition, what good are they??
INTEGRITY is going to be one of the key things that creates the MOST difference in your life.
If you have full integrity on committing to changing your life by doing the things you need to do to get yourself fitter, stronger, more energized and healthier…
Do you suppose you’ll QUIT?
Would quitting be the “right” thing to do??
Especially if you told your FAMILY that you were making these changes so you could be better for them??
Would you be living a life with INTEGRITY if you didn’t follow through on that commitment?
I think we all know the answer here.
So what I suggest to you is to sit there and reflect on this a bit.
Are YOU a true man of your word?
Do you live a life built around INTEGRITY?
Are you just liar?
