“Almost Doesn’t Count” has to be one of my all time favorite Brandy songs. We all know that person that makes promises, says they’ll be different and they just fall short.
“Gonna find me somebody
Not afraid to let go
Want a no doubt be there kind of man
You came real close
But every time you built me up
You only let me down
And everybody knows
Almost doesn’t count”
INTEGRITY is the foundation to a successful relationship. Shit.. it’s the foundation to a successful life.
When you say you’ll show up, or you commit to just about anything, be like Nike and JUST DO IT!
No matter the size of the commitment you’re making, you have to follow through. When you lack integrity, trust is broken and people will no longer depend on you.
When you lack integrity, even in the small things (calling when you say you will or showing up on time), you have to look at the rest of your life and see where that same lack of integrity shows up for you.
Are you also late for work? Do you not call back business prospects? Is that all working for you in your life?
More than likely it is not and you have to make the change that will ensure you don’t lose something you love or need because of it. Whether it’s a significant other, a job, a business deal or the trust of the people around you.
Because as the title says.. Almost Doesn’t Count.
