Reliability means that others can depend on you. You keep your commitments and give your best to every job. You are responsible. You don’t forget, and you don’t need to be reminded. Other people can relax knowing things are in your reliable hands.
You are practicing reliability when you …
– Make promises you can keep,
– Really care about doing what you promise,
– Return things you borrow,
– Plan ahead,
– Do your best and finish on time, and
– Find another way if obstacles occur.
I am reliable. I keep my promises. Others can depend on me. Nothing can stop me from giving my best.
The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.
One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.
The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
