Integrity: The Ingredient That Is Needed

IntegrityWe have all been in situations in life or in business where doing the right thing usually paid off. But there may have been times where doing the right thing came with some unnecessary consequences. You even found yourself questioning what you did when the situation happened. This simple thing of “doing right” is one of those essential foundational stones of who you are and what you do or say. The part being mentioned here is known as INTEGRITY. What is integrity? Integrity is defined as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Simply put, integrity is that one ingredient that will show your true nature. Everyday we are always making decisions for our lives and our businesses. It’s in these very moments where integrity plays the most important role in the final outcomes. In your individual life, integrity is the ingredient in relationships with family, friends, and even enemies. In your business, integrity plays the important role with employees, business partners, department managers, vendors, and other businesses. For each the list could go on forever but you get the idea. Although integrity is a separate foundational stone to your unique make up-it is however in close relationship to your character trait. Remember CHARACTER is defined as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. When you mix both character and integrity together in a bowl you will have a distinct recipe called-YOU. Wherever you go, whatever you do, and what you say all involve integrity. Sometimes we hit the mark with this and sometimes we miss it. Everything you have to offer in life or in business, YOU are the only one that can either make or break your overall success. “Your brand. Your identity. Your uniqueness.”
