I is for Integrity

Six Sentences From Atop My Soapbox

Do The Right Thing! 
Integrity appears to be in short supply nowadays, although the concept is simple - do the right thing, always, regardless of whether anyone else would find out.  Most of us know the difference between right and wrong when it comes to how we conduct our personal lives and how we handle our relationships with others.  We know how we want to be treated, and we should honor our commitment to treat others the same way.  Make your words count - if you don't mean it, don't say it - no excuses. People pay attention to how well our words are reflected in our actions. To earn respect you must live your life with integrity and set an example for others to follow.

  1. Integrity....great topic! I need to learn more of this. Being an addict, I will say one thing and then do another. Same thing as being an alcoholic trainer, yet telling my clients they need to live a healthy lifestlye. Talk about being a hypocrite. :((((( Thanx for bringing up this topic. It really resonated with me. xoxo

  2. That's a big word- integrity! The Golden Rule is one of my favorites..I had it hung on the wall of my first grade classroom. You are never too young to start learning.

  3. And integrity is doing the right thing even when no one else will ever see or know. It's how good character is built.

  4. It's what we do when we know we can do anything that defines who we really are.

  5. Integrity is like that handshake so many of us remember growing up. A person's word means everything. Keeping it speaks volumes about their character.
