It is amazing the value we give to spoken word. Truly, the meaning of words takes on life based upon tone, delivery and authenticity. We must also be especially conscious of the words that we use in our language and thoughts, particularly as it relates to us specifically.
Most important is the measurement we place on ourselves and others in relation to how words and actions align or not. When outcomes betray what has been spoken, our reaction or response is an indicator of the value we place on what is said.
This is where authentic trust begins or ends.
