Affirmations of Truthfulness
I will tell the truth.
I will encourage others to be truthful.
I will not cheat or steal.
I will admit it when I am wrong.
I will not exaggerate to make things seem different than what they are.

"When we lack truthfulness, no one can tell if there is a lie or a truth before us. People who cannot be trusted to tell the difference between what is true or what is false, we cannot tell which is fact or fiction. Without trust there is confusion and disunity."
From Virtues: Life's Enrichments

True Life Stories?

Sometimes being truthful and living with positive values has its serious difficulties. We see others getting ahead and feel left behind.  But life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Those who run fast beyond their abilitites may take a quick lead, but will soon run out of energy and fail.  Conditioning, training, and a steady pace The Emporer's Seed Storymakes for a pleasant and winning race all the way to the end, where it really counts. Begin with the end in mind.
