Loyalty Versus Trust

Standard

There is a difference between loyalty and trust. You can be loyal without being trustworthy.

Loyalty
Loyalty can be termed as devotion of a person to a cause, an organization, country, or another person. A person can be loyal to someone or something, whether it’s right or wrong. Loyalty implies sticking with someone or something, even if it goes against your own self-interest. Loyalty is considered as an obligation or duty.

Trust
A trustworthy person is someone who you can rely on as being honest or truthful. You can confide in that person to do the right thing, even when no one is watching. Trustworthiness is a step higher than loyalty, because it is being loyal and righteous at the same time.

Being loyal is easier than being trustworthy.

Take Action!

Standard

Here is one of my favorite quotes:  “Action speaks louder than words.”  Some people like to sit around all day long and boast about what they are going to do and even provide the details.  We can talk a big talk, but when it comes down to it, do you actually accomplish what you say you are going to do?

If you want people to trust you, then when you make a commitment to someone, you need to make every effort to fulfill that promise.  Before making that commitment, you need to be sure you really want to do it and if it is possible.  It is not the thought that counts… it is the action that proves your loyalty.
