A wise man once told me, “They can take everything, your money, your health, your family, but there is one thing they can never take, your integrity. That one, you have to sell.”
What he was saying is that no matter what the situation you can ALWAYS act honorably. Who you are, what you stand for is not something that can be traded for security. In the end, even if it feels that you have succeeded, you will fail, because you cannot live without integrity, it will eventually destroy you.
“Today I will hold myself accountable to my integrity and know that in the end, it is something no one can take from me.”
