10 signs you’re an honorable person who earns the respect of others
By | Jelena Dincic | hackspirit.com
The word “honorable” always makes me think about knights and dames. There’s just something noble and dignified about the word “honor”.
But you don’t have to be a character from Game of Thrones or to have lived in the middle ages to be an honorable person. There are actually plenty of honorable people around today.
In fact, it’s quite possible that you’re an honorable and respected person yourself. Ever think about that?
Let’s take a look at the signs and see…
1) You always keep your promises
Here’s the thing:
A lot of people like to make promises and talk big. They’ll say stuff like, “Don’t worry, I’m gonna sort that out for you!” or “I’ll be there, you can count on me”.
But can you guess what happens afterward?
It’s all talk. I don’t know if they’re doing it because they feel like that’s what they’re supposed to say, if they genuinely mean what they say at that moment and then forget, or if they’re just trying to look good by smiling and making empty promises.
Whatever the reason, there are many people who don’t keep their promises which totally sucks for the people counting on them.
But if you’re not like those people, if you keep your promises and honor your commitments, it’s because you’re an honorable person. You’d never let anyone down on purpose.
If you say you’re going to do something, you can be counted on. And if you say you’ll be somewhere, come rain or come shine, you’re going to show up.
That’s why people respect you, your word really means something.
