What is Integrity?
In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions.
Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy, in that integrity regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs.
In this context, integrity is the inner sense of "wholeness" deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. As such, one may judge that others "have integrity" to the extent that they act according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.
If I could teach only one value to live by, it would be this: Success will come and go, but integrity is forever. Integrity means doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching. It takes having the courage to do the right thing, no matter what the consequences will be. Building a reputation of integrity takes years, but it takes only a second to lose, so never allow yourself to ever do anything that would damage your integrity.
We live in a world where integrity isn’t talked about nearly enough. We live in a world where “the end justifies the means” has become an acceptable school of thought for far too many. Sales people over-promise and under deliver, all in the name of making their quota for the month. A person takes or steals from another because the other person has something they want (not need). People find try to find the easiest way to get ahead, whether it is right or wrong. Someone takes credit for another person's work.
It would be great if each of us practice the highest form of integrity as we strive to achieve our personal goals. The best way we can practice integrity is to:
Do our best when we are given a task.
Be accountable for our own work.
Follow the rules of the ones appointed over you.
Be a team player and not a divider.
Behave in a manner that causes others to trust you.
Be a person of your word.
