Effective tips for developing Integrity
1. Fulfill all your dreams and promises
The first step towards developing integrity is commitment. Your commitment should be so strong that you never give up on things until and unless you achieve them all. No matter if your dream looks achievable or not, you should always learn to never give up and work hard until success really knocks your door.
2. Keep the track of everything you do
Once you are committed to yourself and start working on your goals, start keeping track of whatever you do in a day to achieve your goals. For better tracking and commitment, you can also stick positive affirmations on the wall and mobile wallpaper. Furthermore, whenever you achieve something do not forget to reward yourself.
3. Think before committing
Start with small goals and small steps. Do not try to fill so much on your plate that it becomes impossible to achieve all the tasks. Moreover, whenever you set goals and make a plan… try to think before committing. Think quietly about how you are going to achieve all the plans. Do not hush into the process and take smalls steps and achieve big. No matter how big your dream is!
4. Learn to say “No”
Saying no is an art. I think everyone should know to speak and stand for themselves when the world is not doing any justice with them. Honesty and integrity at this point can be only maintained when the person says no when he\she actually wants to. When things do not go in the right manner, honesty plays a vital role in such situations.
5. Enhance integrity with communication skills
Whatever you speak reflects your actions, therefore, always speak with honesty and integrity. Whatever you say, mean it and own it. In order to develop communication skills with personal integrity, watch your words and action; only speak the words which are aligned with morals and ethics.
6. Avoid people with toxic traits
To live with integrity and honesty, the most important thing to do is to avoid all the toxic personality traits like pessimists, opportunists, and procrastinates. We cannot deny the fact that there are different personalities. And, we should always carry the personality which is honest, vulnerable, mentally strong, and positive.
7. Learn to listen not to react
In life, there are various situations where we have to speak against odds and exceptionally we lose our integrity. We say things which we never should speak. Therefore, train yourself for such situations, always listen to everyone, but do not react. Similarly, when someone tries to do wrong, do not lose your integrity. Let them speak and let karma handle the rest.
8. Get comfy with “Hakuna Matata”
Hakuna Matata means “no worries”. Apply Hakuna Matata in your life and be happy with whatever you have. Be honest and always speak the truth. Carry an integral personality that is strong and hard enough to break.
