I have written about this before and I am most likely going to write about it again and that is Integrity! If there is one thing I wish for my clients it is that if they walk away with nothing else from my sessions that they really understand the importance of integrity in their lives.
If you want one hack that can change your life this is it.
Once you understand this then you will start to take back your own power and the sky becomes the limit. It is the very goo that cements you to your most wondrous potential. People might know what they want in their lives but all too often they do not know how to get there. Integrity is the how!
To have integrity means you keep your word to others, but even more importantly you keep your word to yourself. All to often we worry about what others think of us but we are blind to the importance of what we think of ourselves. And it is what we think of ourselves that others really see.
For instance if you have been cheating on your diet and exercise and consequently not getting the results you want you will find that no one will really believe that you have been trying your hardest. The results are there for all to see. I realise that this example is fairly unsubtle but the theory is the same for everything. If you tell someone that you respect them but are always late they will start to doubt your word. And this is soooo important!
Your word is an extension of yourself. Ah duh! If people cannot trust your word then they cannot trust you. Also if you do not trust your word you will not trust yourself and consequently your self-belief will also go down. If you have ever had a low self-belief you will know that it is very hard to move forward without addressing this first. But… there is good news all of this can be remedied and it is through developing your integrity.
People who have high integrity are known to have high morals. Because once they commit to something they stand by it no matter what. The most wondrous thing about integrity is that once you develop it, it is as if life recognises this and starts to bring little synchronicities into your life.
This happened for me earlier this week. My intention for this year is to look for ways I can give back to society. So far since moving here I have struggled to connect with any charities. Then on Tuesday I had booked the front room at the Coworking Hub in Bath for a ConsciousCafe event only to arrive and it was already full. On talking to the event coordinator I found out that he runs Local Giving and knows all of the charities in Bath. He has offered to send my details to them and from this I hope to find some that would like to work with me. All very exciting :)
Having experienced first hand the effects of having integrity it is the one understanding that I always priorities. This is not to say that I don’t slip from time to time, but if life is going against me it is the first thing I check to get myself back on track.
Integrity is the key to your door for success. Use it or lose it :)
How integrity relates to success is simple. Everything we create in life from chairs to babies starts with a thought, then a feeling and then action.
Thought - Feeling - Action = result
If you want success in anything you have to follow your thoughts and feelings with action. It is developing integrity to do what you say you are going to do that will determine your success in anything in life.
So how do you develop it? It is actually quite simple. You become more aware of what you commit to and you ensure that you keep your commitments both to yourself and to others. If you really want to improve you can set yourself commitments and be in action of them just make sure that they do not streatch yourself too far as you will be challenged in equal proportions.
Good luck with this if you are unsure just remember that your subconscious is programmed to doubt things it does not have data for. So promise yourself to do this for a month and then if you see a change you can decide if it is as wondrous as I have made it out to be.
Wishing you a fabulous month
