This week, I’m starting a six-week seminar series titled: Creating You. For each week we’ll meet for an hour and a half to discuss whatever breakthroughs and challenges the attendees are facing in everyday life, then form meaningful actions to take in order to create for ourselves the life we desire.
Each week will be given an intention, which we will use to frame our discussion for the session.
This week we’re focusing on the oh-so-charming-and-fun topic of integrity.
Here are a few questions to keep on mind for the week (and no, they are not from Landmark *ha-ha*):
– How do you define integrity; what does it mean to you?
– How often do you find yourself out of integrity?
– Why is integrity important in our daily lives? If you find that it is not, why?
-If you do find it important, how can you live each day with integrity?
– What are a few ways you have dealt or can deal with situations when others are out of integrity?
To me, integrity means two things.
1) You do what you say you will do, by when you will say that you’ll do it. If, for some reason, you cannot, you acknowledge that it didn’t happen for x/y/z, fix it, and move on.
2) You stay honest and true to who YOU are, no matter what. (Hey– you are your best friend, and you are the one who has to live with yourself!)
I’ve found that these two elements make up for not only my personal definition of integrity, but also a pretty solid way to stay confident that you perform to the best of your abilities on a path that rings in accordance with your soul.
“It is easy to live for others, everybody does. I call on you to live for yourself.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
