When People Show You Who They Are, Believe Them

One of my closest friends likes to say “people tend to start as they’ll finish” and it’s so very true.

When people show you who they are, believe them the first time. And in most if not all cases, yes, people will start how they’ll finish.

This applies to ALL relationships. Personal and business alike, people are still people and will give some very distinct clues early on, the power and possibility is in reading those signs accurately.

I have a lot of reputations and one includes my natural intuition and insight as well as the willingness to voice it. That voice gets louder all the time and it’s so fun to watch people react to what I say. If you’re new to being in meetings with me, you’ll get used to it 🙂

I spent a VERY long time spending time with people who were takers and drained my energy. These days I’m a lot better at recognizing the red flags and either removing myself or fully cutting those people out (whether they know it or not).

Do people always start as they’ll finish? Maybe, and maybe not 100% of the time but as I grow I have less patience and capacity for those who drain and exhaust me.

The beauty of it all is that it liberates me to spend and share quality time with those that right from the start show up and feel effortless. Heartfelt connection is a core value of mine. I get to choose who, when, where and when I spend my time. I intentionally choose to focus it on those that just feel right from the start. Because in most if not all cases, that’s how it will unfold and finish.

People tend to start as they’ll finish and trusting myself is a gift I continue to embrace. My absolute closest circle includes those with whom it has just worked and been easy from the beginning. I couldn’t have predicted them and yet they still showed up.

When people show you who they are: Believe Them! People tend to start how they’ll finish. Be discerning in how you choose to spend your time.
