Guidance on Sincerity and Earnest Endeavour
Sincerity and earnest endeavour are both important qualities. Perhaps the expression ‘earnest endeavour’ is a bit old fashioned. Today we might say that someone is dependable and always makes a real effort. Token efforts are insincere and useless, and easily recognised too. People who are sincere mean what they say and can be relied upon to do their best. They are the ones whom others trust to get things done. Such people have the satisfaction of knowing that they always do what they can, as well as they can, in all circumstances. When we know this about ourselves we have more confidence and greater self-esteem.
