 Integrity comes when character is tested; keep true and never be afraid of doing what is right.

Authenticity + Integrity = Genius

Genius has always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

Albert Einstein

You don’t have to be a theoretical physicist to be a genius. It really only takes being true to yourself and expressing that truth through how you live your life. It takes belief in yourself, commitment to your principles, and the willingness to act. It doesn’t become integrity until you are facing adversity, great or small. This is the time to ‘walk your talk.’

If It Was Easy Everyone Would Do It

It is not freedom from conditions, but it is freedom to take a stand toward the conditions.

Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

The common perception is that life is best when it is trouble-free. That way of thinking is missing the mark. The challenges, obstacles, and difficulties are what create the opportunity to forge your integrity. It is in those times that you truly come to know who you are and what you will stand for.

They Like Me

If you want to achieve anything of value in the world, you have to get used to the idea that not everyone is going to like you.

Simon Sinek

Living in your integrity means that some people will not like you, or what you stand for. It’s essential at these times that you understand with total clarity why you believe what you do. Time spent identifying your core principles and values will provide the inner strength necessary to navigate these instances.

I Did It My Way

I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.

G. K. Chesterton

Genuine self-knowledge allows you to listen to the viewpoints of others, adopt ideas that empower you, and then, continue on in the direction that your integrity calls you to.
