With Integrity





‘Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.’

Miguel Ruiz

Do you walk your talk? Say what you mean and mean what you say? Or does your language take you down roads you are not willing to follow?


While the concept is simple, it seems to be a difficult task for so many of us. Speaking with integrity means taking time to be aware of what you are saying, and the intention behind what you are saying. It is a choice you make to live by your word, and to live so that your word does not harm others.


You can make the decision to live with integrity. Be aware of what words are coming out of your mouth, and take time to consider the purpose of those words before you speak them. Be aware of saying things that will hurt others, and choose not to say them.


Keep your promises and keep your word. If you are faced with not being able to do this, be up front and honest about it.

Remember, successful people live with integrity. They say what they do and they do what they say. They are trusted by those whom they interact with and they build healthy relationships that encourage ease. These relationships then help them to achieve bigger and better things.

Living with integrity starts with being true to yourself and living true to your purpose. Are you being true to yourself today?

‘Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.’
