I am concerned that a lot of leaders lose their platform of trust by not following through on their promises. It's kind of like shooting yourself in the foot when you don't mean what you say.
Can the people in your life really trust you? Do your spouse, kids, and friends believe you when you talk to them?
Let your yes be yes, and your no be no. Don't leave room for confusion. When you say something, mean it, and follow through.
Remember what the Centurion in Luke 7 said? It was amazing enough that it impressed Jesus!
For I also am a man placed under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” Luke 7:8
When the people under your care trust you, it makes it much easier for them to follow your instructions.
Sticking to your word means that you will need to take a moment to think before you speak. Don't let words and promises just fly out of your mouth, or your promises will be empty.
Empty words are a sure way to undermine your influence.
