Crest of Integrity
“Confidence on the outside begins by living with integrity on the inside.”
~ Brian Tracy
Confidence without integrity is nothing more than arrogance. Integrity is the key ingredient for anyone wanting to live a life that’s beyond reproach, and is esteemed, honorable, and desirable. If you want a strong coat of confidence to help you through life, you need to be full of integrity to the very core of your existence. This combination gives you something that is untouchable and enviable; so do all you can to build yourself into someone who is known for doing the right things at the right time to the right people. Right on!

“The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.”
~ William Edgar Borah
If you don’t stand for something, you fall for everything. United we stand, divided we fall. Don’t stand for a government who poisons the air you breathe, contaminates the water you drink, and copyrights the food you eat. You fight their wars, die for their causes, and sacrifice your freedoms to protect them. They have liquidated your savings, destroyed your middle class, and used your tax dollars to bailout their unending greed. You are slaves to their corporations, zombies to their airwaves, servants to their decadence. They’ve stolen your elections, assassinated your leaders, and abolished your basic rights as human beings. They own your property, shipped away your jobs, and shredded your unions. They profit off of disasters, destabilized your currencies, and raised your cost of living. They’ve monopolized your freedom, and stripped away your education. What more will you give your government (the ruling elite) before they take everything away you’ve worked so hard to acquire and live for?

Principle — particularly moral principle — can never be a weathervane, spinning around this way and that with the shifting winds of expediency. Moral principle is a compass forever fixed and forever true.
~ Edward R. Lyman
Are people born with good hearts? Can people learn how to have a good heart? Can people change what they perceive as good or bad whenever they feel like it and be considered a moral person? The answer is yes (and no!) to all these questions depending on who is answering them. What can’t be argued is that true good-heartedness does not change – it remains fixed and unshakable even when tested beyond courage. Trying to act like you have a good heart will only bring disappointment to those who see the real you and also to yourself. Search your soul for instruction and mimic what good people do and you will be a victor over what is considered wicked and evil by most people. A good heart makes a happy person no matter what their condition or situation is in life. It can’t be bought nor can it be taken away, unless of course you let it.
