clement stone integrity quote
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity. ~W. Clement Stone

This really hits home for me tonight. There are things in my life that I’m not always totally honest about. Not anything earth-shattering or life-altering (well, sorta)–but nothing that really changes anything. Nevertheless, I’m struggling right now to justify not being 100% honest about 100% of my life. How can I truly call myself a man of integrity; how can I claim to value integrity above almost all other human attributes and not be totally honest? I don’t know that I can. Why is integrity so damned important anyway? Because it’s the only thing that makes us worth trusting.

Yeah…so, that’s it. Integrity. Do the right thing when no one is looking. Tell the truth even when you don’t need to.
