Everyone in this world seems to love being in a place of influence. I think it is human nature to want to be “the one” for someone or others. Influence can be a powerful thing, and it does not always mean a person needs money to achieve it. Influence can be done through a simple dose of walking in integrity. To have integrity is to walk in honesty and sound moral principles. It also means to show we can be trusted. A person who has integrity is one who others can trust and count on through any weather. If you have a friend you can trust, then you have a great treasure! If you are a person who can be trusted, then you are a great treasure!
Powerful confidence comes through walking in deep integrity. Confidence does not mean perfection. Please keep this in mind! Perfection is not ever obtained in this world as long as we are here in our current state. According to scriptures in the bible, someday “perfection will come” in the personified as our Christed Light and then “we shall be like Him.” Until then, we will fall, and we will fail. The main thing is to keep on getting up. To continue to get up when things fall apart shows excellent strength and integrity!
It seems as we seek meaning for ourselves in this world, our illusion is the most excellent movers and shakers are those who cheat others. Ingenuine people never prosper even if it appears they do. Those who walk with great integrity receive the most significant rewards, are the most fulfilled, and are the greatest treasures to humankind.
If you want to influence this world, then allow integrity to be your banner! Everyone on this earth seeks out those to follow, emulate, and become apart of influential groups. Our honest and trustworthiness within our sense of community and compassion always speaks loudly for our reputation. If you want to be one who has a good reputation as one of this world’s most influential people, then take on a dose of integrity and follow integrity’s ways. You will never be sorry!
Loving you from here,

Great post. Integrity is something so important and I think so many don’t even realize the fullness of it’s meaning. A white lie is still a lie. What you do behind closed doors, when no one is watching, matters. I think there is a shift though and God is raising up the right voices… maybe that’s just what I am looking for so I see it more 🙂 In any case, great post and I share in walking in integrity.
Thank you Michelle! I do feel a huge shift as well. Holding integrity is a good way to balance life! 😉
