"Walk the Talk".

Motivational author and speaker Zig Ziglar once said, "Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be."

Think about words like commitment, honesty, accountability, respect, courage, ethics, and integrity. These are important words when it comes to your success, in pretty much every single field of your life, but these words are meaningless if you don't live by them. After all, if you constantly say one thing and do another, you will lose people's trust and, without the trust of your partner, family, friends, clients, or colleagues, success is impossible no matter how much power and how much money you might have.

The late, great Christopher Reeve once said, "I think we all have a little voice inside that will guide us.... If we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do."

Behaving according to our beliefs can be a challenge. But when it comes to earning trust, keeping trust, and therefore maximizing your success, walking the talk is critical.
