It is all about Integrity

Integrity often touted and claimed, rarely do many people really have a deep understanding how deep it goes and how important it really is in every aspect of our lives. Integrity is something you build, it builds in the fires of adversity, it reveals itself in your walk with the Lord, it becomes your foundation as you seek righteousness, it protects you when you are falsely and unjustly accused, it is tested when you experience prosperity. You can not measure it, nor can you hold it in your hand. There is no amount of Gold or money that can buy it. When you ask a crowd of 1000 people, who has integrity, everyone will raise their hands, but you know only a few truly do.

My Mom always said actions speak louder than words. And that is a fundamental truth. Let me explain or ask you a question. Are you willing to sacrifice everything to stand up for the truth, to stand for the oppressed?  To stand for what is fundamentally right? To call out incompetence, deception, corruption, lies, cheats and thieves? Perhaps that is a hard question, but let me ask you the same question from a different perspective. Would you put your life in the hands of a person you knew was willing to lie, cheat or steal if the stakes were high enough? At what point would you draw the line? Now most of us rarely give this much thought and often our good nature prism make others that are corrupt look and seem to be on the up and up.

Actions speak louder than words, and walking that narrow path assures you will have less drama in your life. Less friends too, but they never were friends, they were fair weather friends.

What is my point? I am guilty! I have been that person I want nothing to do with. I have been that liar, that cheat, that thief. I was that person decades ago. Something has changed along the way. The process of learning to surf huge waves contributed to this change. Seeking and serving the Lord is the primary source that has slowly built character and integrity in me. It has been my constant companion now for several decades, yet I still pursue even greater integrity. Why? Because I want to serve the Lord, I want my life to have less drama. I do not want to be a slave to the deception. And I seek to serve others and how can I do that as a practicing liar, thief and cheat and in rebellion with the Lord? I cannot.

I have integrity. I can boldly make this claim because I have reached that point where being tested, I cling to integrity willing to sacrifice everything else, even my life. I have reached that level when I am confronted with a lack of integrity (corruption), where I discover deception, lying, thievery, greed, idolatry, and narcissism and sociopathy, I am repulsed, it is repelled and I have no tolerance for it. None!

I have nothing if I do not have integrity. It is the foundation of my repentance and obedience to the Lord. It is the main and only ingredient required to conduct business based on trust. It is what makes partnerships, marriages and business flourish. Without, all that ensues is disaster, destruction and death.

If you want to be successful, if you want to build a solid business, if you want a solid marriage, you will need this rare element called integrity. Be ready to look in the mirror and to thy own self, be true.

There is a test you can take that asks a ton of offish questions, it will be difficult to game the outcome the first time you take the test. Right off I knew the only way for me to take this test was to be 100% honest in my answers. Why not, you do want to know the level of your integrity right?

It is called the "Integrity and Work Ethics Test", by Psytests.com.  So who is Psytests.com?

So I took the test. I want you to take it as well. Be honest, I am. But of course we already know if you fail miserably and have no Integrity, you will lie about the results. Bottom line though? You know the results.

I scored 100%. I wasn't surprised. If I have a fault, it is I am brutally honest, I will sacrifice it all to be honest and in being this way, many people, even partners and friends of 20 years terminate their relationships with me because of this.

 

My Score:

So there you have it, the final ingrediant to true success in life!

Post your score and comments below. Go ahead, let's have some fun.
