No one will honestly question your integrity if your integrity is truly unquestionable.

The person of integrity can be trusted to do what is right because one answers first and foremost to one conscience.
One does not look to others to justify his actions. One makes one decisions according to the firm, but not rigid, principles by which one lives.

It is this dedication to one’s principles that enables one to live a life of excellence and which sets one’s above the common man.

Without personal integrity, it would be impossible to truly live the warrior lifestyle. You will find as you continue that the warrior lifestyle is not a passive lifestyle.
It takes dedication and hard work. It takes self-discipline and perseverance. There will be many times when it would be easier for you to relax your standards and let some of your principles slide, times when no one would know but yourself.

The only thing that will keep you on track during times like that is your personal integrity and dedication to the principles that you have made a firm decision to live by on your journey to live the warrior lifestyle.

Thomas Jefferson explained how he dealt with such situations stating, “Whenever you are to do a thing, though it can never be known but to yourself, ask yourself how you would act were the entire world looking at you, and act accordingly.”

Living with integrity has to be a 24/7 process, even when you are alone. To do right only when others are watching or listening, and live another way when you are alone, is merely being hypocritical.
