Having integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Principles are fundamental truths or propositions that serve as the foundation of your beliefs, behaviour or process of reasoning.
Personally, I am someone who lives a highly-principled life around truth and honesty and doing the right thing by others. This means that I don’t behave in ways that are not morally upright for example where someone else might say in selling a home that has a fault of some description that it’s not an issue, because isn’t it…’buyer beware’, I go – I don’t follow that line and don’t believe in being dishonest for my own gain to the detriment of someone else. I have walked away from two of my favourite stores – one clothing and one footwear, because they were dishonest about their sales pricing (and I knew!).
I like who I am and what I stand for. I live my truth, always – regardless of whether that may disenfranchise me from others.
What does integrity mean to you and how do you live your values and principles in every day?
