He who walks with integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will become known. - Proverbs 10:9
Integrity is best......
--Even when it makes parts of life harder
-- Even when it allows others an unfair advantage
--Even when it requires uncomfortable conversations
--Even when it exposes my weaknesses
--Even if it means I won't fit in
--Even when no one else will know the difference
--Even when it requires me to treat others better than they've treated me
Integrity is all about doing the right thing, even when no one is looking, caring or interested. 'Integrity is a heart issue and a spiritual habit.' 'Building a reputation of integrity takes years, but it takes only a second to lose, so never allow yourself to ever do anything that would damage your integrity.'
The 'ends do not justify the means' no matter how much the world tells you that it does. 'A word of advice to those who are striving for a reputation of integrity: Avoid those who are not trustworthy.' Choose your friends wisely because you will be judged by who you keep company with. 'When you lie down with dogs you get fleas.'
Success without integrity is failure. 'Do what is right and let the consequence follow.'
