Motivational Monday - Wisdom, Knowledge & Integrity


I’m always astonished at the ease in which people share falsehoods. It seems that more and more people feel that those are acceptable and easily forgive those who share them. I am sorry but, I do not agree! I do believe in forgiveness but, respect goes out the window when I’ve discovered someone lied to me or to someone I care about. Not taking the high-road can, indeed, ruin a reputation. 


Wisdom and Integrity

"Wisdom is KNOWING the right path to take, integrity is taking it." -M.H.McKee


Food for thought: What truth is so difficult to speak that you're willing to jeopardize your reputation? Those with integrity know there's none! None whatsoever.


Happy Monday All!

Even if the path is more difficult, I'd rather take it than find my way out of a tangled web, Michael Jacobs!

Debe Maxwell, CRS, sometimes, I wonder if people even think about the consequences while speaking lies. Do they care! Probably not.

Debe love the quote, but "integrity" and "wisdom" could almost switch places in the quote.

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS it's interesting that I know when someone is not telling the truth and they keep on trying to hide it. Years ago we had an agent that we had hired that lied a couple of times or so that just simply was not going to work in my office. What's odd to me is some of the time it would be no big deal just telling the truth. I guess they get stuck and just can't fess up.

Morning Debe.

From what I got reading this one, I would hate to be the culprit that lied to you.

Good morning Debe - I agree with you.  Integrity is something that you have and if you lose it you don't get it back.

Integrity is akin to self-respect - cannot imagine being very proud of oneself without honesty. I too have been the recipient of lies, it's never a good feeling - and once's pretty much over.

Knowing what the right thing isn’t doing it are two different motivations or levels of motivation towards the same thing.

Hi Debe,
Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hit the nail on the head here. Integrity is all about self-respect. It is usually pretty easy to know what to do in any given situation if you are coming from there.  If you don't have those two things, what do you have?
