Judge people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words. The track record of a person’s behavior reveal the true character. I believe this is true. Whether in business or relationship, this principle applies.
Before doing business with anyone, remember what a wise person said: “I don’t trust words. I even question actions but I never doubt patterns.” A person’s track record and pattern of behaviour over the years are the surest, most reliable indications of a person’s character. It is imperative to do due diligence. Search and research into the person’s history of behaviour. This way you would avoid loss. Your loss. And while we are in it, we need to make sure we showcase integrity in all of our dealings.
