Loyalty (vs. Unfaithfulness)
Demonstrating commitment to others
To practice Loyalty I will:
- serve my family and teachers
- encourage other in hard times
- not mock authorities
- point out the good in others
- honor my country
When the Beach Boys sang about being “true to your school” they were singing about being loyal to the community of your school. But Loyalty goes beyond cheering for the football team and wearing school colors. It’s about feeling a connection to the individuals in that school community, an ownership of the institution – My School, My Class. One only has to look at the increase of tell-all books, the average length of a marriage and employee turnover rates to realize that loyalty is a lost art.
This month, identify those individuals and groups to which you are loyal and rededicate your commitment.
“Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends.”
– Walt Disney
“You don’t earn loyalty in a day. You earn loyalty day-by-day. ”
– Jeffrey Gitomer
