July 7th Is All About Truthfulness
They say honesty is the best policy. They also say the truth shall set you free.
We got to say that no truer words could have been spoken. After all, honesty and truthfulness are the two virtues we need to live a life of integrity. Such values are so important that we even have a special day dedicated to them — Tell the Truth Day.
Every 7th of July is an opportunity for everyone to speak nothing but the truth. We know how difficult it can be to be honest 100% of the time, and this holiday might just be the motivation we need to push ourselves into living a life of honesty.
In our day-to-day lives, we face situations where we have the choice of either telling the truth or lying. Many of us are probably guilty of lying. Some lie their way out of trouble, some lie to make others feel better, while some lie just for the fun of it.
Telling a white lie may come with little consequence, but doing it over and over again can turn into an undesirable trait. Those in your circle may no longer find you credible once they find out that you lied to them. They’ll most likely distance themselves from you. Worst, you might even become a pathological liar who ends up believing in your own lies.
Sure, there might be instances when lying seems to be the best option, but the benefits of being truthful far outweigh the short-term benefits people can get from lying. Trust us, there are many!
The 4 Benefits of Telling the Truth
In celebration of Tell the Truth Day, Veteran Car Donations gives you four reasons why practicing honesty should be your top priority.
- You form deeper connections with others.
By constantly telling the truth, you give everyone the impression that you’re always open when it comes to expressing your thoughts and feelings. Seeing how comfortable you are in candidly talking about your life or problems, they won’t have a hard time sharing their personal stories with you.
- You gain trust and respect.
Many people are afraid to point out the truth, especially when they know that it can stir up controversy. If you’re one of the few who’s not afraid to speak your mind and tell it like it is, your friends, family, and colleagues will respect you.
- You don’t have to remember your lies anymore.
Telling a lie means you have to keep that lie in mind to save yourself in case someone asks about it in the future. If you happen to lie to a friend with a good memory, there’s a huge chance that they’ll catch you if you slip.
- You attract people who are just as truthful as you.
Honest and authentic people are hard to find these days, and if you do find one, consider them a keeper. Those who are completely transparent are drawn to like-minded individuals who genuinely admire them for being their true selves. Since they’re all about preaching integrity, they’ll always tell you upfront whenever they have issues with you, which makes it easier and quicker to resolve them.
Reach Out to the Disadvantaged Vets in Your Community
Want to know the ugly truth about our veterans? Thousands of them are currently struggling to transition to civilian life. Life after serving in the military has left them living impoverished and miserable lives. Some are suffering from service-connected disabilities and illnesses, including mental health disorders. For these reasons and some others, many of them can’t find decent jobs to support themselves and their families. For lack of support, some have fallen deep into poverty, forcing them to live on the streets as homeless beggars.
The good news is that you can do something to help turn their lives around. All you got to do is donate your old clunker to us here at Veteran Car Donations.
We’ll auction off your vehicle and use the proceeds to support the life-changing programs and services that our veteran-focused charity partners deliver to their beneficiaries. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits provide deserving veterans with free quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.
As our donor, you’ll get entitled to receive the maximum tax deduction based on the selling price of your vehicle during its auction. We’ll send you the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your car within days after its sale. You can then use this receipt to claim your tax write-off in the next tax season.
You’ll also benefit from our free professional pickup and towing service.
Aside from the material rewards in store for you as our donor, you’ll also be privileged to enjoy a most satisfying donating experience, knowing that your act of charity will help transform the lives of our nation’s heroes.
