Half A Dozen Ponder Points On Integrity

Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D studied self-made millionaires to find out what attributes helped them to get where they are. In his book The Millionaire Mind he identified over thirty traits that all of the individuals had in common. The number one trait that 100 percent of these self-made weathy people had in common was a "fanatical level of integrity". If you are interested in finding out more about Professor Staney's book, a review of it is at http://www.bainvestor.com/The-Millionaire-Mind-Book-Review.html. Here are a few words of wisdom on the subject:

“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the full light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny…it is the light that guides your way.” – Heraclitus Greek Poet, Philosopher

"Confidence on the outside begins by living with integrity on the inside." -- Brian Tracy

"The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity." -- Zig Ziglar

"Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat, then you know he never will". -- John D. MacDonald

"Integrity is what we do, what we say, and what we say we do". --Don Galer

"Integrity is not a 90 percent thing, not a 95 percent thing; either you have it or you don't". --Peter Scotese
