Today, I want to ask you a very important question, one that I really want you to think about because it will help you in ways that you could never believe possible till you actually do it!
Are you acting in integrity?
What does ‘acting in integrity” mean?
It means doing what you said you would do without any reasons why you couldn’t follow through.
Without any rationalizations why you couldn’t follow through.
Without any excuses why you couldn’t follow through.
You see, too many people these days are really good at trying to explain why it is that they couldn’t (instead of ‘didn’t’) do what they said they would do. Cutting corners is “CUTTING CORNERS.” It isn’t doing what you said you would do, so you were out of integrity if you did this.
If you are the 1 person who can actually follow through and do exactly as you said, you are going to stick out as the 1 person who can be relied on.
If you are in business, and many of you on this page are, best that you not make promises you are not going to keep.
It is best that you state exactly what you are going to do, in the time frame you can get it done and stick to it unless there is an unforeseen tragedy that comes up — and then COMMUNICATE WHAT HAPPENED — because communication is the key to building trust in any and ALL your relationships.
I make it a point to ALWAYS follow through with what I say I am going to do. Many times, those who are giving me things to do are shocked that I will do it right there and then to make sure it isn’t on my ‘to do’ list because I don’t want it there — I want the thing done! That means I don’t have to think about it again. That to me is ‘freedom.’
***NOTE: If you have messaged with the person about what you said you were going to do — or wrote it in a chat or an email — the record is there so, you can see that any reasons, rationalizations, or excuses that one can come up with will never get you where you want to go with that client that you basically lied to because you didn’t follow through as you stated you would.
So, I ask you again, “Are you acting in integrity?”
If you aren’t acting in integrity, there is probably a block that is causing you to sabotage yourself. If that is the case, be honest with yourself — and then get the appropriate to help you with it — but you HAVE TO BE READY TO LET IT GO — I help people with these issues all the time and know that the best clients are those who are excited and ready to do the work — they do WHATEVER it takes to get rid of their problem regardless of all the times they were told by others it couldn’t be done.
Your subconscious mind is the most powerful tool you have — however, too often we don’t use what we know how to do for ourselves — worse we don’t ask for and pay for help when we need it — and then we wonder why clients won’t pay us what we want — it’s called INTEGRITY folks!
Till you walk your own walk, don’t expect anyone else to care about a word you have to say…because you didn’t give the reason too — pure and simple.
So, are you acting with ‘integrity?’ Or are you just fulling yourself…questioning why it is that you aren’t getting the results you want in life.
Comment below if this resonated — not to beat up other people — not interested — just speak about your own experience with yourself. Because the reality is that the most important person in your life and getting your results is you — no one else!
