“Man! Brutus, Judas, and Benedict Arnold are the most trustworthy people I know…” said no one ever.

Key Points:

  • Loyalty is staying committed through adversity, putting in the work, and staying with it.
  • If you aren’t loyal, you won’t have healthy or long lasting relationships because you will constantly be shifting your allegiances.
  • To grow in loyalty, identify a few friends who are loyal and pay attention to the qualities that make them such a good friend. Be sure to replicate those in your own life.

You give loyalty, you’ll get it back. You give love, you’ll get it back.-Tommy Lasorda
