“Encountering integrity can be like a breath of fresh air. A person of integrity has honorable intentions, is trustworthy, and is honest. An air of high drama or manipulation does not surround acts of integrity. Acts of integrity stand on their own.”— Melody Beattie
Integrity has become a rare virtue these days. In this fast-paced, pleasure-driven world, it’s not always easy to adhere to your core values and principles.
But if you’re inclined to embody the best version of yourself every single day and achieve extraordinary success in all aspects of life, you must cultivate integrity within yourself.
People with integrity often have the same qualities: they’re humble, they know who they are and what they stand for, they have high self-esteem, they’re self-confident, self-reliant and simply focus on walking on the right path no matter what. These characteristics are crucial to living a simple, stress-free, and honorable life, because, sometimes, you’ll be under intense pressure from others to make the wrong choice.
You must work on developing and nurturing these qualities within yourself and building your character so that you have the strength and courage to do the right thing when the time comes. Spend time getting to know yourself, and what values you believe in. Moreover, cultivate friendships and professional relationships with only those who demonstrate integrity, and who will support your decisions, even when the tides turn against you.
Make this week about exploring the key role integrity – other people’s and your own – plays in making this world a better place.
