No Integrity? No Life

By Evan Sanders

When no one is around you, are you the same person?

Are you the exact same person as you always are? Are you truly consistent in your character?

Without integrity we lose our ability to truly learn and take advantage of all that life has to offer us. Our relationships suffer, our body suffers, we don't perform as well in the work environment and most of all we can't trust ourselves. Keeping to our integrity and being the same person as we always are is one of the most important building blocks of life.

Who could really trust us if we don't actually do what we said we are going to do? Could you even trust yourself? Not really. But isn't it incredibly how many people in this world seem to not care about their integrity?

So how can you live a life with integrity?

Do what you say you are going to do. It doesn't matter if you say it to yourself or to someone else, you must do what you have committed to. When you make promises, keep them. When you say that you are going to do "whatever it takes" to achieve something, stay in line with your words.

However, there are going to be times when we break our word. What do you do?

Admit your mistakes. Admit your mistakes quickly and emphatically. It's amazing how much others will forgive you when you understand your wrongdoings and try to make amends. People respect you more and they trust you more because they know that it happens to everyone.

You don't have to hide anything when you admittedly take care of your mistakes.

It's time to build some integrity in your life and begin to follow through with everything you say you're going to do. Your life will change, your relationships will thrive, and you will start moving forward quickly.

Because truly, without our integrity, we are nothing.
