De persoonlijke inzet voor integriteit betekent: het spreken van de eerlijke waarheid te allen tijde, ook al is het de luisteraar zou kunnen kwetsen, en het creëren van conflicten voor u persoonlijk. het betekent ook nooit genoegen te nemen met iets minder dan wat je verdient in je relaties met anderen. leven met integriteit is niet gemakkelijk, want ze vraagt ​​uw totale toewijding aan uw persoonlijke waarden die hoger zijn dan de gewone moet zijn. Ze verwacht ook dat je om keuzes te maken op basis van wat je gelooft, en niet wat anderen je vertellen dat je gelooft. alles gezegd zijnde, het leven met integriteit, zelfs voor een dag is miljoen keer beter dan vele jaren van het leven zonder haar. een leven met integriteit is het enige leven goed geleefd, in mijn ogen. dus ga je gang, neem die stap gewaagd, en leef het leven met integriteit.

Destiny doesn't stay in the stars, but she lives within our characters IMO. Our characters are governed by our actions, while our actions are driven by our thoughts. So ultimately it's our thoughts that truly control our Destiny. Who we're today, and who we'll become tomorrow is thus purely directed by our thought process. Hence, thinking positively becomes the key to awesome "Now" and amazing "Tomorrow". Destiny is never a matter of chance, but a matter of choice that we make every moment. So, think positively - always!
