The Power of Integrity

Daily Brightside




Integrity Brings With It Incredible Power

Be a person who keeps their word. Many people say things like, “I’m going to change” or “I’m going to start that business,” but two months later, they are still using the same justifications and habits. These people are liars because they only talk and do nothing. The worst lies are those we tell ourselves to excuse our inaction. If you mention anything, follow through on it. Excuses don’t help you advance; action does.

Start by maintaining your word to yourself in the little things of life, like getting up and going to bed on time, eating on time, exercising on time, doing your work on time, working on your business on time, reading books when it’s appropriate, and spending time with your family on time. Doing what you say you will do, correctly and on schedule, whether or not you feel like it, is the whole point of having integrity. Some people make claims and then act otherwise, which merely demonstrates their lack of commitment to achievement. Make no excuses; nobody cares; the only thing that matters is results, and results can only come through action.

Simply put, stop lying. If you are not doing what has to be done, then you are merely living in a fantasy world. Some people are deluded, believing they are working hard even when their behaviors betray this belief.

Millions of people moan about their lives; do you want to be like them or different? If you want to be different, you must act differently. If you act like an unsuccessful person, you will live like an unsuccessful person. If you want to start that business, take action. If you want more from life, take action. Start acting like a successful person, and you’ll undoubtedly experience the same outcomes.

Don’t forget to check out these quotes >>  Jimmy Fallon Quotes About Life, Politics, and Show Business

If you don’t start being a person who keeps their word to themselves, then why should anyone else take you seriously? Write down your goals and daily action steps, then go accomplish them. Raising your standards and expecting perfection from yourself will help you avoid displaying a lack of honesty.

Get up, exert yourself, and take control of your life because you are the one who decides what happens.


“With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.”

~ Zig Ziglar
