Integrity means following your moral convictions and doing the right thing in all circumstances.Values, goals, and decisions exhibit your integrity. When you behave your beliefs you are congruent, you are unified or more whole.
When we are behaving outside our values we are conflicted, living a more stressful life. If you value honesty and work for someone who requires that you bend the truth, or who forbids you telling the truth, you lose your integrity. It is a high price to pay. And it results almost always in high stress that takes a toll on your body, mind, spirit, and relationshihps.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation that you found your company's priorities are antithical to your values? Have you chosen a career that gives you the opportunity to serve others and then discovered that the organization that hires you is more interested in the financial bottom line than the giving of quality care?
Or do you find yourself making choices that aren't in line with your personal values and wonder why you feel so uinfulfilled?
When you observe others behaving in ways you can't understand, consider what their real values were and how their life has gone off course. This is most observable in those who are addicted to a substance or behavior. The addiction takes over their life and they lose themselves.
What we need in today's society is a greater emphasis on personal integrity. Too many of us get caught up in the "mob mentality" and behave in ways that just don't fit us as we strive to fit in with the crowd.
