“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.” Oprah Winfrey

Published on 1/17/2016

Integrity is about more than just doing the right things all the time. It is about building the kind of character that can survive a crisis intact.  In the same way a building that has integrity can survive a storm, a life that has integrity can do the same.

We must develop our own integrity.

Be ruthlessly honest with yourself. Of all the lies we tell, the ones we tell ourselves are the most deadly. Question your motives.  Stop justifying what you know to be wrong.  Stop excusing yourself.

 Image result for being honest graphics

Seek wise counsel. We all have blind spots.  It is one thing to be honest with yourself but sometimes you and I are just blind to faults others can see.  Find three or four people who believe in you and ask them for feedback on your life.

Decide to honor God, not please people. Doing the right thing is almost never the easy thing, and sometimes it is not the popular thing.  Honoring God is not the same as believing you are always right and everyone else is wrong.  It simply means you are going to live with a long view of what to do, informed by scripture.  It means enduring short term pain for longer term gain.  To avoid becoming arrogant or deluded, make sure you test what obedience looks like for you not only against scripture and prayer, but also with your circle of wise counsel.  They will see things you cannot see.

Be appropriately transparent. Each of us would like to be something we are not.  Admit your shortcomings.  You do not have to tell everyone what you are struggling with, but you need to tell someone.  Part of being honest with yourself, is being honest with others.  And as much as you might be afraid that everyone will think less of you, living transparently and not pretending to be someone you are not, actually makes people think more of you.  It is counter-intuitive.  It is also transformative.

Put yourself first when it comes to personal growth. This may sound a bit selfish, even unbiblical, but I am not sure it is. Jesus prepared for thirty years before ministering for three.  And during those three years he often disappeared to pray.  You can only give what you have.  And he spent whole seasons of his life receiving from God what he needed to give to the world.  Cancel some appointments.  Tell the kids to wait.  You need to build a solid spiritual, emotional and relational foundation for your life.  Pray.  Open the Bible (for you – not for anyone else pastors).  Go for a run.  Eat something healthy.  Go for dinner with a friend who gives you life.  If your cup is empty, how are you going to fill anyone else’s?

Crowdfunding is not only about personal projects, giving or helping others. Crowdfunding could be your personal business receiving money from around the world and the donations will go to your project.

 Image result for helping yourself by helping others graphics

My project is helping Filipino students to better their lives by providing financial assistance to further their education. This is an extremely exciting project after observing their poverty first hand. Myself, I cannot change the world but I can make a small difference.


What would be your Crowdfunding project?

Let's change the world together one person at a time. Grow your personal financial portfolio while working on your own project. This Crowdfunding is powerful and extremely exciting. Let's help ourselves. Let's help others. This is so exciting to help ourselves and others at the same time.
