6 Tips to Help you Strengthen your Integrity

Ever so often, you reach a turning point in your life where you realize you’ve changed, your environment has changed, and/or your goals and challenges have changed. One of the first things that I do whenever I encounter one of those major shifts in my life is take a good look at my values, ready to embrace the change.

After experiencing some of those changes in the past few months, I recently reviewed my "Core Values" worksheet and evaluated what words still aligned with my life and which new ones I needed to define.

Here is one of my favorite discoveries: Integrity is a core value essential to trustworthiness. And as a Life Coach, trustworthiness is very, very important to both the nature of what I do and, to me personally.

I took some time to explore my personal journey towards integrity and here’s what I’ve learned:

If you're feeling a lack of integrity it might be the result of a few things:

-You fear not being liked.

-You fear vulnerability.

-You lack confidence and/or communication skills.

-You have a constant need to be in control.

-You have a hard time saying no and love to people please.

-You do not feel worthy or good enough.

So what are some ways you can strengthen your integrity? There are 6 below.

  1. Get comfortable with saying "NO".

  2. Honor your word.

  3. Re-evaluate your inner circle.

  4. Improve your self-awareness.

  5. Journal on what values are most important to you.

  6. Improve your self-worth.

Working on these 6 Tips will have a positive impact on all areas of your life. Keep in mind you do not need to get this perfectly and it is OKAY to make mistakes.

Perfectly balanced is an impossible expectation.✨It’s unattainable and yet we all feel like we must reach it in order to have a peaceful, meaningful and happy life.🙆🏻‍♀️BUT the thing about balance is that it’s not an end goal, it’s a way of living. It’s a practice that constantly teaches us how to prioritize and reminds us to keep what’s important to our happiness sacred. Let’s chat...what does being happily balanced mean to you?
You, my friend, are making an impact on this world. So rather than dimming your light and downplaying your accomplishments, why don't you take a little credit for all you have done and are continuing to do?

Tell me one amazing thing you’ve done this week in a comment below so that I can celebrate with you!
🖤
Shine bright, powerful woman. You’re worthy of having your accomplishments fully seen and fully celebrated.
Are you filling yourself up with goodness and caring for your health in a way that aligns with your values and goals? How we choose to nourish ourselves impacts our mind, body, and spirit. This week take a mental note of how your diet is supporting your life and let it lovingly guide you towards uncovering your deeper needs. ♥︎Drew
I didn’t plan on taking a social siesta for more than a few days (obviously I still posted some stories) but it just kind of happened that way.
♥︎
If we’re being honest here, I’ve been craving more realness and truth. Less perfectly curated facades and noise.
♥︎
Not to sound dramatic but I needed space to salvage my spirit and make room for growth.
♥︎
The timing couldn’t have been better. Right before our road trip to Charleston and right after a few weighty decisions that forced me to ask myself some difficult questions.
♥︎
So I tried (keyword: tried) to immerse myself and stay present during our trip. Using the down time to sit with my thoughts. Holy shit, that’s hard to do.
♥︎
I’ve been noticing some internal shifts surface along with how I want to show up in this space of mine and in your sacred space as well. So I asked...
♥︎
“How can I stay truthful to who I am as a human and what I believe to be important while still curating a beautiful brand, inspiring others and aligning it all with my values and business?”
♥︎
This question seemed super complicated until it unraveled into something very simple....a question I would probably ask my client going through the same thing...”How can you let it be easy?”
Ahhhh...got it.
I’m back.
Unplugging a bit this week (don’t worry I’ll still be on stories) from social. My husband and I are embarking on a road trip to Charleston. First stop is Lexington, Kentucky and the bourbon trail. We’ll be staying overnight in a contemporary museum because....art. To be honest, I’ve been struggling a bit on how I want to show up in this online space of mine and for my friends, readers, clients, potential clients. I am not sure what this shift looks like yet but I will keep you all posted and till then you can follow along in my stories.✌🏼
We need to stop giving the word “busy” so much acclamation and start to re-introduce a new word to sum up our lives and our days. Because, girlfriend, busy doesn’t acknowledge all the goodness you have going on. I find myself using this word way too often🤦‍♀️and after I do it I feel even more disconnected and stressed. So this week, let’s take a mini challenge together and remove this word from our vocabulary. And if you need some help, here are some other words to use: eventful, active, full, vibrant.💫Leave an emoji if you’ll join me!🙅‍♀️
