Person of High Integrity
Be a Person of High Integrity
By Stan Mann
The world admires and benefits those that have high integrity. If you are a person of integrity, a person of quality, a person of excellence, the world will reward you. This is an important key to being a winner in life and business.
People will be attracted to you, be persuaded by you and willing to help you toward your ends, to do the things that you want them to do.
To be a person of high integrity, go the extra mile, do more than you have promised. If you an appointment, you are early for your appointment. You respect the other person?™s time, you do not come late. That communicates your time is more important than theirs.
Which brings me to the other issue, some people might say, ?œBut, if I have high esteem, I?™m proud and really like myself, won?™t I be arrogant???/P>
That's not true, unless you think you are better than somebody else; that is what arrogance means. Arrogance says, ?œI am better than you.??True high self esteem means that you are excellent and the other person is excellent. You regard them as highly as you regard yourself. It is a win-the win situation.
We have been talking about going the extra mile, doing more than promised, being on time for appointments, respecting the other person?™s time, making promises that you keep. If you really want to go the extra mile, what you should really do is under-promise and over-deliver. That is, promise less but give more than the person expects. That will amaze them, they will feel good about you and you will feel good about yourself.
