How clear is the line for loyalty?
Loyalty is something that is very difficult to quantify and measure. How can you tell if someone is being loyal? When are they being disloyal? As someone who prides themselves on exuding a tremendous amount of loyalty toward others, I wanted to shed some light on the topic. In the #CJJblog this week, I give you some clear signs on how you can tell when that line for loyalty is being pushed. Enjoy.
- You cannot have loyalty without integrity. Are you someone who carries themselves with integrity?
- Liars are not loyal. Every time you tell a lie, you lose a little piece of your loyalty.
- Are you consistently on time or early to appointments? Being respectful of others’ time is a true sign of loyalty.
- Are you respectful to others? Anyone who shows disrespect toward others can easily be considered to have zero loyalty.
- Words and actions. Do they match? Do you do what you say and say what you do? Any inconsistency here leads to a conclusion of disloyalty.
- Do you know of anyone who always shifts the conversation back to them and their interests? Ask yourself, “do I care about myself more than others?”

Life Tip: You can’t live a perfect day without doing something nice for someone who can’t repay you. Always remember when it comes to loyalty, you can’t keep score.
