Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.
Everyday we are faced with situations that challenge our integrity in one way or another. For some, it might be a struggle to find the courage to stand up for what's right. For others, facing adversity might not be challenging at all.
It's easy to make the right choice when we know people are watching. But, are we as quick to make good choices, be honest, or stand up for what's right when no one is around? Do we guard our integrity no matter what the cost?
Integrity defines our character. It's a value we should all be striving daily to develop and strengthen. If we let it fall by the wayside, thinking no one will notice, we are failing ourselves. It's not always easy, but the more we practice doing the right thing, the easier it will become. Anytime we want to incorporate a talent or character trait as part of who we are, it takes practice. Integrity is no exception.
Make sure your integrity is in tact no matter what situation you find yourself in. There is always someone watching, even when you think you're alone. Let your actions make a statement about who you are. It might even help eliminate stress. After all, if you're honest, you don't have to rely so much on your memory.
