Integrity

As we go along our life journey, we will have discovered building personal integrity is the most powerful trait to possess and the one we have the most control over.

Integrity is about being honest with ourselves. It is about striving to a firm adherence to a code of lofty moral values. High personal integrity creates trustworthiness by standing true to a responsibility or pledge.

Perfect integrity is not reachable on this earth. The journey is to grow forward in knowing oneself, being honest with oneself, building a strong personal moral code, acting in accordance with one’s code and one’s word, and admitting one’s mistakes. Making the same mistakes over and over does not build integrity.  

Building high personal integrity will help make the road smoother to a joyful pursuit of happiness.

Maturity

 Maturity involves being honest and true to oneself, making decisions based on a conscious internal process, assuming responsibility for one’s decisions, having healthy relationships with others, and developing one’s own true gifts. It involves thinking about one’s own environment and deciding what one will and won’t accept.
