Integrity: What It Is, Why We Need It and How to Lead with It.

Although this blog was written for men, integrity is a personal value that women can aspire too as well. For too long we have been encouraged to be less than what we are truly are capable of. By revisiting the value of integrity, we can aspire to be the best version of our self we can possibly be.

If there is one thing that looks good on a man it has to be integrity. Integrity is what makes a person trustworthy and makes people want to follow their lead.

 Men of integrity tend to be:

  • Men who know who they are and what they stand for.
  • Men who have a purpose in life that is bigger than they are.
  • Men who wear their values like a code of honour—their word matters to them.
  • Men who protect the vulnerable and less fortunate in society.
  • Men who stand up for truth.
  • Men who have an aura of inner strength about them—observable in the way the carry themselves in their day-to-day activities.
  • Men who lead by example and make excellent role models and mentors for younger men.

Younger generations deserve to have great role models and mentors to show them how to live with integrity. If we get the momentum going, integrity is an art that they can pass on too.

It is assumed that intelligence is the measure of a man, when it has been morality all along

I love the leading phrase in the article; 10 Ways to be a Man of Integrity “Character is what you do when no one else is looking.” It captures the picture of integrity splendidly, but knowing and doing is often easier said than done. This point is well illustrated in The Art of Manliness. It provides questions for men to use for self-discovery about choices they are presented with in life. Some might consider this site to be dated, as it provides many opportunities to reminisce about what hobbies, interests and behaviors have inspired men in the past.

The Good Men Project has a growing readership and also offers great insight to help men reacquaint with integrity and other issues that affect men.

These articles support the need for and the value of integrity. By living in integrity you are presenting the best version of yourself, being a role model for others and enhancing the relationships you have.

If you would like a personal roadmap to increase your degree of integrity and enhance your own intimate relationship, pick up your copy of Ending Global Loneliness; Finding Purpose, Love and Dynamic Relationships It is full of tips, techniques and insights that will inspire you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

I hope this blog helps others to remember how amazing we truly are and that personal integrity is something we should be proud of.

If you are inspired, share this blog with others that you know are looking to redefine their masculine presence in the world and live in integrity.
