  1. What is integrity?
  2. People with integrity are different.
  3. Helping hands and loyal partners.
  4. You can count on them for anything.

Integrity is choosing courage over comfort. Choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy. And, choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them.

Have you ever noticed the undeniable presence of a person with high integrity? It is as if the atmosphere around him is much more appealing. To be a person of integrity is not easy, but there are certain things that can be practiced. This requires some basic honesty, sincerity, and a strong sense of self. These people with integrity are the models that we admire. How to judge, whether a person you are dealing with is a person of integrity or not? Quite a simple thing; watch the person closely, should you see the following mentioned characteristic in him, you can be sure of his integrity.

They express their disagreements very courteously

Although most of your friends are your friends because they agree with you all the way; people with integrity have a sweet and direct way to express disagreements. In fact, people with integrity are always more concerned about mutual respect; they do every possible thing they can, to make sure that truth remains no mystery. They will say what is truth, and not just the things that people want to hear.

They live according to certain standards and expect others to do the same

An important element of self-assessment is to measure how many of the things we say, we actually practice. To expect others to do things according to standards higher than what we can do is really not a fair thing. Judging others’ is very easy. People with integrity never judge others, but prefer to raise them, even if it means admitting their own faults and imperfections. They are just trying to grow up as everyone.

If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.Alan K. Simpson

They choose to act sooner rather than later

If you are a person who prefers to ignore a wrongdoer to protect your own interests and choose not to take any steps; you are not a person of integrity. If someone is in trouble or in immediate danger, one that has integrity will not wait for someone else to take action. They will be the first to take the bull by the horns in dangerous circumstances, even if it means helping another person.

If they give you their word, you can count on

The friability is often a feature that no one wants. I have seen many people who are very brittle, always busy in making plans to detach themselves from others. People with integrity ensure that others are seeing you as a man of words; a man who always fulfill his commitments. If you (as a person of integrity) are making a promise, you must make sure that you are leaving no chance for doubts about your commitment.

ALSO READAre you an honest human being? I bet, NO.

People with integrity know what is right, and they are not afraid to say it, which is why they are the worst nightmare of a tyrant. They do not tolerate insults or inappropriate language and are known for defending people who cannot defend themselves. Their deep moral sense is highly accurate; they know what is right and what is not, and have a deep conviction for a balance.

They take the time to say hello to him who was excluded

A person of integrity will act more maturely when it is about old grudges. Instead, stretching out an old issue, people with integrity will always prefer giving up old differences and starting afresh. I have seen many people ignoring others because of tiny differences. It seems like they don’t want to surrender their ego, even if it cost them a premature death of a relationship.

Practically speaking, people with integrity will always vote for building relationships, and not risking them over minor issues. More life ahead. There is a lot more experience yet to gain. The better you sail with others, makes your journey easier. Do not buy enemies, but make more friends.

Integrity is mastering your conscience and watching your own actions as a critic. Taking the role of a leader is usually not something that anyone wants to do. When you are a leader, it means that you are responsible and aware of what is happening. Should you lose your integrity, you will also lose your identity. Don’t make people point you out as a person without integrity. No matter how cool, stylish, educated, rich you think you are, if you are a person without integrity, you are nothing, but a big zero.

Live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it.
