Be honest about who you are. It's tiring to pretend you're someone you're not.
Be honest about what you desire. It's a waste of time and energy to strive for what you don't even want.
Be honest with yourself and with others about the challenges and the possibilities. You can absolutely achieve great things, and the way to do that is by being realistic about what must be done.
Be honest in what you say and in what you do. Put the irrefutable power of truth on your side.
Deception may seem easy and convenient in the moment, yet it is invariably destructive in the long run. Being honest requires strength, discipline and integrity, and those will all serve you well.
Be honest for your own sake, for the sake of others, and for the sake of truth itself. Be honest, and give a continuing, solid boost to your best possibilities.
