  8. Most people want to be successful in life. They may measure their success in different ways. Some people think it is earning money, others think it is being famous, and others think it is going on expensive holidays and owning houses and cars. Whatever kind of success you choose, I believe that there is one personal characteristic that is essential if you want to be successful, and that is honesty. Honesty is important for several reasons.
  9. First, honesty is important if you want to earn the trust of your friends and colleagues. No matter what profession you are in, whether business, law, education, or medicine, it is important for other people to know that you will always tell them the truth. I believe that people who are honest will usually be more successful in the end because more people come to them for advice and ask for their help.
  10. Second, honesty is very important for your own self-esteem. How can you enjoy your success if it has been built on dishonest actions in the past, or by deceiving other people? If you want to feel calm and relaxed in your heart, it is important to feel that you have always tried your best to be honest with others. If you feel confident, you can make better decisions and you will be more successful in your relationships with others. People who are honest will be rewarded for their honesty.
  11. Finally, honesty is important to society as a whole. If we try to be honest, we can be role models for our children and also for other people. If there were more honest people in the world, it would reduce the amount of crime and violence and we would live in a better society.
