Integrity Is The Glue That Holds Life Together

3:01 pm in Pyschology That Helps by seph

When not a single person is looking, who are you? Are you the same person that you present yourself to be when you are with others?

Without integrity, we are nothing. Our dreams elude us, truthful relations with others fail to exist and we will not trust ourselves be cause we aren’t really who we are saying we are. Integrity is the most fundamental building block of life. Without it, what do any of us have? Without integrity, our word will mean nothing as it doesn’t basically have any substance behind it and our actions are rather more of a random event taking place instead of something that is done with conviction and belief.

Yet, it’s amazing what number of people in this world function without a drop of real integrity.

How can you be different?

When you say you are about to do something, ensure it’s already as good as done. When you talk about yourself, actually tell the honest truth. When you make big promises, keep them. And living among that, really focus on the small things, because while they are the tiny details of life they demand your greatest attention and respect. If you can get the tiny things right, you are setting yourself up to get the big things right.

What happens if you break your integrity? Admit your mistake and recommit to what you can.

It’s funny how quick friends are to truly forgive when you are seriously up-front and admit your mistakes overtly and with enthusiasm. Nevertheless if you refuse responsibility, people lose their respect for you and will continue to go after you until you admit your mistakes.

It is way easier to be open and truthful about your mistakes and faults than attempt to cover anything up.

So build some serious wholeness in your life and begin following through with your word. Not only will your life change, but your relationships will change as well.
