Continuing on from my earlier thoughts on integrity, today I wanted to focus on the idea of how important it is to be the same person in public as you are in private. Would you take something that belonged to someone else, if there were people watching? Would you lie to another person if other people in the room knew that what you were saying was untrue? Would you make promises if you knew that the next week, you’d have to break them? Most of us would say “no”, we would do the right thing. But would things have been different, if no one was watching. If no one could call you out for stealing or lying or cheating? THAT is the big question and also the way our integrity is tested.
Determine to be the same person with the same set of values, no matter where you are or who you’re dealing with. Integrity is essential for long-term success and peace of mind!
