Here is a word you don’t hear often tossed around when speaking of your own success. There is
no doubt that to be successful you must have definite of purpose. Have you ever wondered how
sincerity would help to propel that purpose?
I want you to test your sincerity with your current endeavor. Ask yourself, “I fully realize that I
am seeking personal profit, however do I know within my heart that I am exceeding the value
expected for my good or service. Am I looking for something for nothing?”
Sincerity is a trait that will give you the utmost in satisfaction as you move towards your goals
and your dreams. Are you doing what you do only for yourself or do you hold a higher vision
and purpose even above the money and the stuff that it will surely bring.
Will you find success without sincerity? Certainly you will with direction, purpose and action. I
believe, however, the rewards will be much greater and swifter with sincerity on your side.
A trusted aide once told President Lincoln that his enemies were saying horrible things about
him. The President replied, “I don’t care what they say, as long as they are not telling the
truth.” Lincoln had a sincerity of purpose that made him immune to criticism.
As you move through your day, through your tasks and your appointments keep your mind
focused on the good you desire. But ask yourself if you are only looking out for your own
achievements or are you sincerely focused on the good that you are providing for others as well.
You are sure to reap the vast riches that are available to each one of us but there are even
greater riches waiting for you. When you place your sincere desire to give in plain view for
others to see you will be rewarded with more clients, more customers, more ideas, and of
course more money.
Your grand vision is waiting for you. The life you have dreamed and more is there. What are
you doing each and everyday to bring the reality of that vision into clear focus for yourself? Are you sincere in your quest?
