With full enthusiasm, excited for the great day ahead and for the next day, I faced the fact that I, together with my thousands co-workers, almost lost my job when one of the newer hires stole from our client millions of money. Our ever supportive and generous boss was so devastated by the news and the firm trust towards us wavered. Our perfect reputation that we are proud of can’t be redeemed. It’s already tarnished and we need to work nth times just to recover our name. Whatever good we did for the past years became nothing because of this recent single mistake. This is the harsh reality that made me remember that integrity should always be practiced whenever and wherever you are.
Integrity is to choose the right thing all the time. To have integrity means to hold on your values and principles. It is to exhibit honesty, trustworthiness, and dependability. It is to be true with yourself and to keep your own words. Nowadays, it is so easy to ignore this when everyone do everything just to achieve success. Why bother when the end can justify the means, right? But whatever the case is, you should not work like this. You act properly even no one is looking. You do what you promise. You follow the rules. If you have integrity, you can keep your character and stand in your life at any cause.
