Doing what you say you’re going to do, when you say you are going to do it.
Integrity is wiping the toilet seat in a public restroom after you just got some of your piss on it, knowing that no one would ever know it was you if you left it there.
It’s NOT throwing trash on the ground when you are walking through the park.
It’s calling your friend back because you said you would.
It’s getting up early enough to make yourself a balanced meal rather than grabbing a Gogurt on the way out the door because you told yourself you would. (But let’s be real. Frozen Gogurts are one of the unsung heros of the last decade)
We MUST do all of these small things, and we must do them consistently if we ever want a chance of following through on the big goals we set for ourselves.
Every time we break a promise we made to ourselves or someone else, we destroy trust. Loss of trust in ourselves leads to self-doubt, low self-esteem, and a further lack of follow through. Nothing destroys relationships with others like the loss of trust. Get in the habit of doing the small things every time and watch your self-confidence and relationships grow.
