Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Real Integrity is . . . .

Real Integrity is . . . .


Motivational Power Quote


Real Integrity is . . . .

"Real integrity is doing the right thing,

knowing that nobody's

going to know whether you did it or not."

 Oprah Winfrey, talk show host


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Real integrity is . . . .   

Real integrity is doing what's right even when you may be the only person in the world that would know what you've done.  

When you think about a person with integrity you think about the person's character.   

Acting with integrity is seen as an attribute in various aspects of a person's personal and professional endeavors to do the right thing without looking recognition or for personal rewards.  

Even when under pressure a person with integrity will do the right thing for the right reason.  

The person with real integrity emerges as the leaders, as a top performer, and is sought out for their advice and counsel.

Lou --- this is so true.  I thought someone other than Oprah had said it earlier though.  Regardless, it's a wonderful thought.

I like to keep it simple, Integrity is like an on/off switch...you either have it, or you don't.

Lou, I know exactly when I do the right thing, say the right thing, etc.  Funny - you just can't hide it from yourself.

No matter whether someone else knows are not.  You still have to look in the mirror everyday.
