Built on Integrity
Built on Integrity

The secret to your success will be your integrity, which comes down to your character.

Integrity is the act on being honourable when no one is watching. It’s not something that you can show someone, it’s what you do and how you act behind their back or when no one can see.

Integrity is built on principles not popularity. The quality if being honest and having strong moral standards.

Your yes is yes. Your no is no.

This means your words match your ways, your behaviours match your beliefs. Your character is linked to your integrity, so make sure you don’t compromise on your values.

Someone who doesn’t have integrity don’t have the respect of those around them. And if people don’t respect you, you can’t influence them.

Your integrity integrates your words, deeds, and actions into one. Your integrity can be destroyed when these do not flow into one. A person without integrity will say one thing, do another and promise something else.  We must be AUTHENTIC.

Integrity means you are at ONE with yourself. What you say, think and do lines up with who you are.

Integrity comes from your values.

What do you value? Because you won’t exploit what you value most. What standards do you set? What is acceptable to you? Lies? Cheating? Stealing?

Honesty means living a transparent life where nothing is hidden.

When it comes down to it, ask yourself do I love God and love others? Because this ultimately will affect our character and therefore our integrity.

Your character will be challenged, even your integrity. The devil will do everything in his power to destroy it. This often comes through temptation in one of three ways;

  • power
  • money
  • sex

Eve was tempted by power. Judas sold the saviour for money. Samson was destroyed by sex.

Temptation will challenge your character. Temptation in itself is not a sin but acting on it is. The devil tempted Jesus, he responded with ‘It is written’. Our combat to temptation is our relationship with God, walk with him and know his word to protect yourself.

Remember everything you build can be destroyed in five seconds.

To walk in integrity, we self-examine every area of our lives so that we can be the role models and influencers that can change a generation.

Parenthood, The Teenage Years.
The first two articles in this series have taken us from the birth of our children, through the first years of childhood as they quickly learn by observing and experiencing the environment around them. We moved to the period in their lives as they make friends,...
Parenthood, Years Five to Ten.
Friends are some of the people with most influence in our lives, and this is especially true when we’re growing up. The Proclaimers, (you will remember these stages are taken from their song ‘Your Childhood’), claim that the stage between five and ten is when children...
Love Unconditionally
“And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.”Mark 12:30-31 (NLT) God loves people you know, and people you don’t know. But he also loves...
Live Sacrificially
Sacrifice means committing your ways, thoughts, and actions to God. It means loving God with everything you have and being willing to love others. When we love others like God does we will see them through his eyes and be willing to make sacrifices for them. “Love the...
Take Responsibility
Leadership is about action, but responsible leadership is about responsible action. There were a group of managers who were given 62 cards with different managerial tasks, their task was to put them in order of what they deemed to be important in regard to their role...
Walk in Humility
Humble yourselves under the mighty power of God and at the right time he will lift you up in honour.1 Peter 5:6 (NLT) Being humble can be a difficult thing to get your head around if you are a leader. We may have experienced the need to put ourselves down to the point...
Lead Courageously
We have all heard and experience the fight or flight reaction. When something that scares us comes along, we have two possible responses, are we going to face it and fight it, or are we going to run from it. Leading courageously means fighting against that thing that...
Creating Your Culture
Our culture is constantly being moulded by our environment; it comes from the people around us and is extremely important as it will determine our character. For example, in our most formative years we are shaped by our families, those closest to us, our community....
Parenthood, From Birth to Five.
My wife Dawn and I were married way back in September 1992. After our honeymoon, we moved into our new home which was just about finished, or as finished as we could afford at the time. We had a kitchen, half a bathroom and a lot of cement floors and walls. The...
