Entitlement and Components of Integrity

quote
“The man who promises everything is sure to fulfill nothing, and everyone who promises too much is in danger of using evil means in order to carry out his promises and is already on the road to perdition”

– Carl Jung

Be True to Yourself and Be True to your Core Beliefs

As we look around us these days, do you notice how the world has changed? We went from better to worse, worse to horrific and we’re heading for horrific to dread?

Entitlement

Entitlement can be the feeling or belief that you deserve to be given something, such as special privileges, possession of or ownership of that which belongs to someone else. It seems there is a total sense of entitlement that seems to have arisen in the younger generation. Most have learned this from their parents or role models. Technology has given way to an urgency for instant gratification.

Conscious Actions

In this day of instant gratification and busy schedules, the American society (in particular) has become too busy. They no longer pay attention to what might matter most, and that is the difference between right and wrong. We bring up our children with the words “no” or “you can’t do that!” by trying to give them proper guidance so that they can survive in our society.

How many times have you nearly been swiped by someone that refuses to stop at a stop sign?

Driving with Integrity

Driving a motor vehicle is a privilege that we all have. What happens when we ignore the rules of the road? If we speed excessively, pass through stop signs or avoid red lights we risk the dangers of injury to ourselves, to others and even the possibilities of death.

When we come to a STOP sign we should spell out the word S-T-O-P, not just look to see if another car is coming and take off.

Often, we see someone texting, reading the newspaper or even shaving while driving. Sometimes people drive the wrong way on a one-way street or throw garbage out their car windows.

Drinking and driving or driving under the influence of drugs is something we all know too much about. The consequences and costs for breaking the rules are great. Other than risking injury and destruction of property, legal defense fees, court fees, the loss of your license and possible the loss of your job might be a deterrent for many but a travesty for most.

Today UBER or taxi services are readily available. It’s wise to select a safer means to travel. Don’t take chances when you don’t need to.

Personal Integrity

A good indication that you’re on the right path is when you start to see more of your own trash. Seeing our own faults is never easy, but it’s what we do once we take notice of the things that tear us down that makes all the difference.

Feeling grateful for having the clarity to see what it is that we need to change offers us greater opportunity to grow. If you are aware of who you are, by listening to your inner voice when it’s saying “I know I’m selfish” or “I know I can be reactive” can improve who you are. You can change your life for the better by reaching down deep into your own soul and finding the personal integrity that you contain within yourself.

Challenges are our greatest opportunities to reveal positive results. When there’s more effort required, it only means there will be more fulfillment when we overcome those obstacles. Life’s lessons have to do with “the greater the challenge, the greater the accomplishment.”

What is your Ultimate Goal in Life?

I try to demonstrate integrity in every part of my daily life from the time I get up in the morning till the time I fall asleep at night. It is about a commitment toward doing each and every thing you do in the best manner you possibly can. It’s thinking about whether or not you could be doing things better.

Is it you and your inner-self or is it others and outside influences that drive you to make the decisions that you make?

Great Moments Are Made from Great Opportunities

My resolution is to maintain a treasured awareness into everything I do and a greater consciousness of what it is to have integrity. Many times I become angry or less tolerant of other people’s actions due to their lack of caring or naïvity of not knowing that something they did was not congruous with society’s rules.

When I go the extra mile to perform or correct something I know I did wrong, I feel a greater sense of calmness, understanding and desire to reach out and touch others to make a more positive impact on the world.
