Self-improvement – commitment to integrity

Everyone wants to improve themselves – their life, their family, their career and their strength of character, and there is no silver bullet. In fact, if you’re really serious about succeeding, achieving, and improving yourself through a disciplined self-improvement program, then you’ve no doubt purchased many books, tapes, CDs, and self-help tools; and as you look through them, what do you notice?

Well, you’ve probably noticed that each of them provides many different ideas and innovative solutions for personal growth and self-improvement. But I would like to tell you something, it is a philosophical comment and concept. First, I want you to work at your own level of integrity, and I don’t just mean being honest or open. True integrity is much more than that.

You see, true integrity means finishing what you start and being true to yourself and your mirror. When you set goals, you promise yourself that you will meet them; do it, no excuses. When you tell someone you’re going to do something, you do it. Keep your promises and obligations, keep your word, when you shake someone’s hand and say something to someone; seriously.

Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking, when no one cares, when it’s just you and no one else. Standing tall and standing up for integrity often means taking a long road, but it’s a road you don’t have to worry about later. When you stand for integrity, when it is a part of your life, you are less likely to be misled or go astray. Please consider this and begin your self-improvement program, whatever it may be, with integrity; think about this.
