Without Integrity We Are Nothing

By Evan Sanders

When no one 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, fair friendships with others fail to exist and we cannot trust ourselves be cause we aren't really who we say we are. Integrity is the most basic building block of life. Without it, what do we actually have? Without integrity, our word will mean nothing as it doesn't really have any substance behind it and our actions are more of a random event taking place instead of something that truly is done with conviction and belief.

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

How are you able to be different?

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

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

It's funny how quick people around us are to really forgive when you are up-front and admit your mistakes brazenly and with enthusiasm. Nevertheless if you reject responsibility, folks lose their respect for you and may continue to go after you until the moment you admit wrongdoing.

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

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