The blessing of Integrity: Where are the heroes?
I came across this paragraph this morning and felt compelled to share it because of the powerful message. 'Leadership' is such an essential part of Success in life, no matter what your profession! Whether you are a parent, or involved in your community or church, learning leadership will undoubtedly allow you to make a greater impact on the life's of those around you! Make it a point, each day, to work on growing yourself as a leader!

 

The blessing of Integrity:

 

"We have we have an obligation to speak and seek the truth in everything we do. To do less is cowardly. A person lies, cheats, or steals only out of fear, incompetence or lack of self-worth. Today's society makes excuses for these flaws. We "spin" instead of lie. We blame others for our faults - parents, teachers, coaches, the press, the system. We cover up mistakes. It is rare to to see someone stand on principle and take responsibility for his actions, and it is even rarer to see that person rewarded. It's much more common to see those who fail be forgiven without significant consequence. Where are the heroes? In every recent leadership failure, there have been no heroes. we need them today - leader's who don't play by compromising 'rules' of politics, business, or personal behavior that mark our modern society"

 

Where are the heroes?

 

Make it an Incredible, Earth Shattering Day my friends! :)

 

In the spirit of success;

Excellent quote and question, Travis.  It seems that we have learned to settle rather than demand integrity.
