I found this chapter overview quite informational. Ethics and integrity, we hear that all the time but I don’t think people really understand what the two words mean, this overview explains everything well so that it’s easy to understand.

Off hand I would say that I have a pretty good balance between ethics and integrity. I always try to do everything I say that I will, the best that I possibly can and in the most timely manner that is possible. If I say I will be somewhere at a certain time, I go early to make sure I am there on time. If I say I will have something done by a certain date, I try to finish it ahead of time and not wait till the end, making sure my goal can be accomplished on time.

Doing what I say and fulfilling the words I speak gives me a good feeling and it boosts my self-worth in knowing that people think of me as a person with integrity. They know they can count on me if I tell them I will do something. If I do what I say I don’t have to invite the chaos committee in to make excuses for my behavior!

This audio was a wonderful explanation of the differences and complexities of ethics, integrity and morals!! I do not want to be judged as I have felt I had been judged unfairly in the past because all the facts never came out. Having found myself in moral dilemmas in my past, I felt my heart in a heavy place.

Since taking this class at Pay Me What I Am Worth and doing the work, it has helped me immensely sort out in my mind the differences on this topic. I had so many ah-ha moments of my learned lessons in life and such a wonderful releasing and understanding of myself!!

Thank you,
