It does not matter what you plan to do with your life as long as you make sure that you have a good reputation. Reputations are the making and breaking of people. With this in mind it is comforting to know that at least you can have a major say in how your reputation is going to be regarded by other people. That is why it is important to make sure that you present yourself with a good reputation when given the opportunity.
I think it was the great Henry Ford that put the importance of reputations into perspective by stating that you cannot build a reputation on something that you have not done yet! Or to be more precise you cannot build a reputation on something that you are going to do!
This translates to mean that it is no good always promising to do things and not following them through if you are looking to build yourself a good reputation. If you promise to do something then you should make good on your promise and do it as soon as you can or at least do it in the time scale promised.
It is a sure fire way of earning yourself a bad reputation if you are constantly letting people down all the time with your false promises. If all you offer people all the time is these false promises then you will soon get a reputation for letting people down and this is not what you want at all if you are planning to be successful at anything in life. It will not take long for people to lose all respect for you and then they will not take anything that you say seriously. This is a sure fire way to become unsuccessful in anything that you attempt in life. By taking this sort of approach in life you will certainly not inspire or motivate anybody and this will kill off any aspirations that you may have of becoming a success in any venture that you start.
So what this all boils down to is simply do not be the person that is always going to do something, be the person that does something when promised. This will improve your reputation by letting people know that they can rely on you. This will help to inspire and motivate others as well as getting them to trust in you and your ventures.
