A high level of scandal and moral abuses in today's society. Common and at all levels are unscrupulous greed, lack of responsibility, moral indifference and cultural distortion. Many Americans believe heilleika is a vanishing force across the spectrum. Sometimes, its confirmation, sometimes refinancing, as the cornerstone of society, guarantees the principle of moral compassion. The New York Times editors once wrote: "Without honesty, all other virtues turn to the sand."
Few would share what we need more of it. Everyone wants and expects it from everyone else. However, nobody offers its true meaning or says its important advantages. At the moment, in practice, in the abstract, this timeless attribute of good character is vague and wicked.
In Iran's hostage crisis crisis, Cyrus Vance ceased his position as Secretary of State at the Carter Administration. He did so because he could no longer in good faith support President Carter's policy towards Iran. His actions prompted a journalist to write: "You can put the Vance name next to the dictionary definition of personality." Hr. However, Webster has limited assistance in clearing the first high value.
What is a true definition of integrity? Simply put, there is the ability to stand an idea. There is an uncompromising loyalty to judgment, opinions and values of man-when they are tempted to leave them. Water Lippman, the author of the most influential book, wrote: "One has a merit that can respond to situations that are greater than just his leaning, if he can keep thinking when it's uncomfortable or unprofitable to do so."
Eugene V. Debs was a social agitator at the American level in the early decades of the last century. He was against small children working in dangerous columns. Although he demonstrated in Ohio, he was arrested, charged with interfering with peace and thrown into prison. He got a telegram. It says: "Stand with your principals regardless of consequences. Your mother and father." Debt remained fast and became an important factor in reforming the law on child labor in the country.
What invisible forces motivate individuals of integrity? There are many:
- Personal pride is one;
- Individuality is a factor;
- For others requires independent thinking and action;
Everyone, however, is surprised by one improper print-burning and certain plans to maintain self-confidence. Twenty-century thinker and writer, Brad Blanchard, declared that self-esteem is the beneficial thing for the moral movement. Therefore, as he said, "That's what nobody can afford to lose."
Self-esteem is part of the good feelings one has about himself. It is the inner assurance that one is making the right decisions and dealing with them. In the dark hours of the Civil War, when the Union was losing one battle after another, and his personal criticism and excoriation were at their height, Abraham Lincoln held a conference in the White House. He told his warlord Henry Stanton, "When this terrible war is over, I'll have one friend left and he's far from me."
People of integrity gain obedience and respect. If we interrupt and reflect, the reasons will be clear. Honesty enforces purpose. It creates commitments. It strengthens standards at all levels. It conqueres unwanted compromise. It contributes to upright performance and promotional achievements – in personal life, jobs and organizations.
What are you doing to reinvest and reinvest the fundamentals of integrity in your daily activities and profession, your team, your business?
