Positive Reflections: Making Integrity A Way Of Life

Integrity is a value and the best way of practicing integrity is to make it as a way of life. We all have our personal lives and our working lives, which means that we need to have integrity not only in our working lives but in our relationship with our family, friends and the community at large.

The fundamental question that we need to ask ourselves is how do we practice integrity in our daily lives? Firstly, through our words. To put it simply, we strive to tell the truths, we do not lie. Whenever we make promises, we should try our best to keep them.

Secondly which is even more important is to practice integrity through our actions. When it comes to our actions, the list of things to do or not to do is actually endless. Rather than to focus on what we ought to do and what we ought not to do, our actions especially at work should be guided by these sound principles:

a) Are our actions free from corruption?

b) Are our actions in the best interest of our department or agency? Are we able to put aside our own self-interest?

c) Are we accountable for our actions?

d) Do we act with a sense of urgency? We need to realize that if we delay in taking actions, the hardship of the people will be prolonged. In the business community especially, time is money.

e) In implementing our actions, are we making use of our resources in the most effective and efficient way? We should strive as far as possible to avoid wastage.

These guiding principles that I described are by no means exhaustive, but should be sufficient to serve as guidelines for our actions. As we navigate both our personal and work lives, these principles can serve as our compass.

I agree intergrity is mostly shown at work and it is doing the right thing especially if no one is around. Making sure that what we are doing is of the interest of the company at all times regardless of any situation.
Thank you for sharing this @positivesteem. 😊

Integrity is something which is very hard for us to put into practice. We need to be fully committed to the value of integrity before it can become a way of life for us.

I totally agree with you @positivesteem. It takes a lot of practice and its a way of life and its our fear in the Lord to do what is right at all times.😊

Our religious values play a very critical role as well. I do hope that the fear of God will help me to the right things at all times and may He also give me protection as I go about to do the right things.

Yes indeed. Integrity is at the heart of all success! Wishing you all the best.

When we do things with integrity, we are more on our way to significance. People can sense our sincerity and will respond more positively.

Who we are is expressed though the degree of our integrity. When layer with multi purposes it can lose its potency. well written article my friend.

The way we live our lives is a reflection of the values that we have. We can say a man has integrity when we see him living a life of integrity.

indeed integrity is severely lacking in our society today. of course we could blame the system but I agree that if we don't have certain values and principles we hold on to, we lose our direction (compass). definitely following you for some positivity in my life! :)
