The Power Of Integrity
Over the years, I have found that valuing integrity above all else has been a blessing.
Integrity has played a vital role in making me who I am today. Whether it is showing up on time, following through on a promise, or even communicating the inability to do something, integrity has given me inner peace. It has also made my life matter to others.
Valuing integrity makes a significant difference and has a cascading positive effect on things. By just being on time, we respect and value the time of others, and don’t give scope for restlessness and frustration that arises from waiting. Following through on promises makes us reliable and respected.
Having to deal with overwhelming anxiety from time to time, I’ve had to cancel or postpone commitments. Valuing integrity has enabled me to communicate this to the other party in time, reducing the impact of the loss.
Integrity has a lot to do with being true to one’s word. Our lives involve interacting with people on a constant basis, and aligning our actions with what we say makes everyone happy. However, at times we may fail to honour our word. This is when being transparent in our communication shows what we stand for.
Integrity is an evergreen value that lands people opportunities, helps crack interviews, and builds confident leaders. Let us train this muscle and be the change we want to see in the world!
