Never sell you soul. Many times throughout your life you will be asked to do or to perform tasks that will go completely against you moral stance. It will be a test of your personal integrity.
Wikipedia tells me that: "Integrity is consistency of actions, values, methods, measures and principles........People are said to have integrity to the extent that they behave according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold."
What are your personal values, beliefs and principles? It's an interesting question. Do you run yours on a type of sliding scale according to the situation at hand or are yours absolute? Have you ever taken the time to list yours? That's right! Take a pen and paper and actually list your personal values, beliefs and principles. It's a good exercise - could be quite confronting.
Most religions would have a commandment of respecting life. Thou shalt not kill. It's an interesting observation that in times of war conscientious objectors are dealt with very harshly in all countries; yet perhaps these people should be looked upon as having great integrity in not wanting to break their personal moral or religious codes. I guess it's just the way you look at it.
For what it's worth my advice to you is to know your values, beliefs and principles. Never sell out. No matter what price is offered to break them. As long as your values, beliefs and principles do no harm to others, but only good - be proud that you hold them.
Proudly be a person of integrity.
"Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity." - W. Clement Stone
"Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching." - Jim Stovall
"Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you." - H. Jackson Brown Jr.
"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
