Live in Integrity.
We have created a world where profit often takes priority over people. We often surrender (though we won't admit it) our SELVES at the door of the organizations that we work in. We sacrifice our dreams, desires, talents and value for a system that we feel that we must subscribe to in order to survive. Often we complain, we argue we quit, we get fired, we have heart attacks. We march on to the beat of someone else's drum. The question is: is this the beat that we really want to dance to?
It is time to awaken to the truth and rise to the task at hand. What is the truth for you? Are you modifying the truth of who you are to fit in a system that you know doesn't work for you? If you are, you are contributing to a great ill of society-one that may (in the end) destroy civilization. Does it sound a little dramatic? Of course, it does; the truth is often dramatic.
I am not interested in hearing all of the good, sound, logical reasons for why you are remaining in a life that doesn't work for you. Whatever you feel is valid, no matter what. I am interested in those who have the courage to live in integrity, those who are willing to put themselves on the line to battle for the truth. Throughout the history of mankind, the status quo has been challenged, overturned and modified by the rebels, those who are willing to stand up to the opposing forces and speak and live the truth (even in the face of great resistance, heartache and even war).
What do you consider worthy of a fight? Which of your personal truths and beliefs are you willing to fight to maintain? For what are you waiting? Revolution seldom comes with an engraved invitation. Give yourself a gift that will keep on giving--to yourselves and others. Tell the truth to yourself and allow your life to unfold by living in complete integrity.
Success or sabotage? Is it unreasonable to fight for what you need to be successful?
Is today going to be an incredible day? If you want it to be so, what is strong enough to stand in your way?
