Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Integrity is the Secret of Doing What’s Right

Integrity is the Secret of Doing What’s Right

Inspirational Power Quote

 

Integrity is the Secret of Doing What's Right

 

"If you have integrity,

nothing else matters.

 If you don't have integrity,

nothing else matters."

Alan Simpson

  

As I see it. . . . . . .

Integrity is the secret of doing what's right, because it's the right thing to do.

Doing the right thing is not always the easiest path to take.  In some cases, integrity can have a short term cost, but it will pay dividends over the long run.

Your reputation will follow you. Doing what's right creates a solid foundation for your life and your business and will plant the seeds for your future based on your reputation

Your integrity is that inter voice that guides your thoughts and actions. 

Integrity is your moral compass that will maintain your values and keep you focused on doing the right thing during challenging and stressful times. 

When there is a choice always conduct your life with integrity and do the right thing, because it's the right thing to do.

Lou, I have the integrity to expose the truth of what is going on in the world.  There are too many secrets that need to be brought to life.  Everyone needs to discover truth/untruth as opposed to good vs. evil.  Great post!

Lou, I am tempted to just write ditto on Travis's comments, great job!  I also love the quote, and in truth if you don't have integrity, what do you have?

I would like to say I like your post, Integrity is and should be foremost in our thinking to the degree that it comes natural to do whats right.  I once had a teacher who said something that I have never forgotten. 

Integrity is given to us each and everyone of us.  Only you can give it away or you can treasure it, if you give it away, its very hard to regain.

It is refreshing to see some things in life are still black and white.  Integrity clearly is one of those things.  Somehow, a lot of things are becoming gray in today's world.
