I'll be more honest.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 3:21
Communicate more openly
A lie can often be avoided if we’re more direct—while still respectful—when we talk to others.
Own up to your actions
People will respect you when you accept responsibility for your mistakes and do what you can to fix them.
Follow the Golden Rule
You can earn the trust of others by treating them kindly and by consistently being honest with them.
Apologize to the offended
If you’ve been dishonest with someone, be willing to admit it. Then commit to being more honest in the future.
Be true to yourself
Are you hiding whom you really are in order to fit in? Have the courage to be authentic in your words and actions.
Set realistic goals to improve
Set a specific goal to be more completely honest—one that is both challenging and obtainable.
