Lift the Burden By Acting With Integrity

Here’s a Zig Ziglar quote I really like: “With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.”

These words make me breathe more easily. What a beautiful, unburdened way to live. This is an element of life we can all dial up a bit. We can look for that inner opportunity to update our human programming to the next level of functioning.

If you’re in a leadership role, strive to make it easier for others to speak with you from their integrity — unafraid of repercussions, rejection or of being labeled. If it’s something you don’t want to hear, it may be just what you need to hear to understand the full truth.

In times like these, I feel compelled to add that communicating with integrity doesn’t come from a place of criticism or seeking power over others. It springs from a desire for better understanding and more harmonious co-existence.
