Over the past month, I have seen integrity in the Personal and Professional Brand’ of two professionals whose services I have utilized over the past few years. I must say that integrity is one of the most important Personal and Professional Brand’ descriptive words an individual or company can have. If the word integrity is linked to your entire life, I can promise you that your visual image will consistently shine. Integrity is not found in a closet, it can’t be put on like make-up or a tie, and you can’t buy it at the store. Integrity shines brighter for a person better than any fashion or style could ever shine.
One of the professionals I saw these last few weeks was someone whose services were terminated for poor professional work performance. While this person failed professionally, they still look great in my eyes because they told the truth when the truth was asked of them. They chose integrity over their professional goals. They told the truth knowing it could damage their business and reputation, but chose the path of the truth. This person was courageous to tell the truth in a world that can be so full of half-truths. While I was disappointed by their service, I respect their character. What a legacy to leave behind. A person without integrity can’t ever look as good as sloppy clothes look on a person of integrity.
The other professional this week provided greater work than I paid for. That is true value! They did more than I paid for, exceeded my expectations and their integrity is the foundation their Personal and Professional Brand.’ Whenever I see my new advisor, I see integrity before I see their style. Integrity should be seen on everyone, and when you practice integrity, your marketing and advertising costs plummet. Integrity brings in business and creates lasting relationships. Integrity makes you a very visible light in a dark and grey world.
If integrity is not a part of your Personal and Professional Brand,’ then decide to change today. Seek truth, repent from your old Brand,’ and live a life of integrity. I guarantee success will run after you instead of you chasing after success. Nothing look as good as integrity!
