WHAT IS TRUSTWORTHINESS?
Trustworthiness is being worthy of trust. People can count on you to do your best, to keep your commitments. Others can rely on you. They can trust that if it is at all possible, you will do what you said you would do, even if becomes really hard. When you are trustworthy, others can be sure of you and you can be sure of yourself.
WHY PRACTICE IT?
Without trustworthiness, agreements and promises don’t mean anything. If we aren’t trustworthy, people never know if they can believe us or count on us. When we practice trustworthiness, people don’t have to check on us to see if we are doing something we promised to do. They can relax, knowing we keep our promises. Trustworthiness is the key to success in anything we do.
HOW DO YOU PRACTICE IT?
When you are trustworthy, you stop and think before making a promise, to be sure it is something you really want to do and are able to do. You abide by the rules, even when no one is watching. When you make a promise, you keep your word and do your best. You persevere, no matter how hard it becomes, because it is very important to you to be worthy of the trust of others. When you are trustworthy, you have integrity.

STAY TUNED TO THE “V” CHANNEL
As we raise additional financing we’ll produce more “V” videos on Trustworthiness, and many other virtues. We’ll also revise and improve our website, providing a world-class online destination and social media network dedicated to the understanding and application of virtues.
Together we can bring out the best in our children (and ourselves).
