How do you keep or improve your integrity?
Do you think this is a question often asked by many? Integrity, after all, is one of the most important things a human being can have that is priceless and beyond measure.
If you want to solidify and work on your integrity even more, consider the following tips:
Don’t break your promises
We know, promises are meant to be broken, but you should be the one to prove it untrue. Do what you said you would and deliver, be it to your people, to your business partners, to your customers, to your investors and yes, even the promise you have made in your personal life. If there comes a time when you did break a promise, take responsibility and apologize.
Show up when you are expected
Keep your appointments and always show up on time. It is better to wait than for others to wait for you. Is your appointment at the gym? Keep it. Is it to meet the family to bond over something? Don’t hesitate. Remember, a professional and personal aspect both matter when it comes to keeping your word.
Don’t be afraid to say no
Saying no is not always comfortable or pleasant, but it is something you have to get used to and not be afraid to do. When you say no, you stand up for what you believe in and that you are not going to be swayed by something that is not in accordance with your plan and your belief.
Don’t deal with people who lack integrity
The people you deal and associate with will also reflect on you and your integrity. Therefore, choose them well as they may make or break the integrity you have been trying to preserve and solidify in an instant.
