|WITHSTANDING ALL TYPES OF WEATHER, CREATES A STATELY SELF|
Tuesday, February 4, 2014
Barbara Killinger, PhD., in her book Integrity: Doing the right thing for the right reason, says on page 12, “Integrity is a personal choice, an uncompromising and predictably consistent commitment to honor moral, ethical, spiritual and artistic values and principles.” The Twenty Minute Coach says, integrity is necessary for your own personal happiness. You are You! You need to celebrate and honor yourself everyday, twenty-four hours a day. If you compromise your value, your honesty, your commitment to honor your truth then you lose yourself piece by piece. Maybe at first you don’t realize it, but as the days turn into months and the months turn into years you become more and more asleep and begin to feel as if life has passed you by. Personal integrity is as important as your health. Without it, you lose your sense of importance and risk becoming a chameleon.
Today, start asking yourself, “Who am I?” “What matters to me?” Listen to yourself when you are in a conversation with others. Do you do the right thing by you or do you go along with the conversation because you are afraid of what your friends will think? Listen to your inner voice when you are watching politics on TV. What is your opinion? Write each day about how you used your voice and thoughts to speak up for yourself and practice your own sense of integrity. Writing it out will help you become clear, and the clarity will help you really know who you are and what it is that you believe.
