Everybody thinks they have it but, no one does. At least, not all the time! That's right. Integrity is elusive. One moment you're IN integrity. The next you're out. So, it's not a solid, set, & foundational state. It's a fluid, ebbing & flowing state. The goal in life is to live consciously aware of our behaviors and how they effect our lives & others.
Join Nicole Greer, the Vibrant Coach on July 8th at 12:30pm on her BlogTalk Radio Show to dialogue on how character and the 48 Vibrant Virtues can impact your state of integrity. Each of us has a "TILT" or a bent toward one behavior.
We can have a propensity to be resilient without understanding the missing wisdom that is causing us to fall down so we can rise back up. Wouldn't it be great if we didn't have to be so resilient? Wouldn't harnessing some wisdom be REALLY helpful?
We can also have a tendency to be seriously courageous! Great, as long as we are not putting others in harms way. Wouldn't it be great to be courageous, strong, and outspoken while still considering how others FEEL who may be impacted by our valient efforts?
We can be tilted toward wisdom. Great. But, if we never try anything new and just rely on the wisdom of yesterday we'll never uncover new territory & learn to be resilient!
We can be slanted toward serving others & selflessly moving through life serving humanity. Beautiful. Except when we enable others & don't challenge those around us to risk.
What is needed is coaching & a tool to help us see how resilience, courage, humanity and wisdom are vital to our integrity!
