Integrity is one of those big concepts that makes a difference in many other aspects of our lives. When it comes to our intention, however, what does integrity have to do with that? If intention is the rudder that steers the course of our life, then integrity is the tool that keeps us on board, in alignment, and in action. Often, people say they want one thing (intention) and then do something else. Or, more likely, people will say that they really want something and then do nothing. This often results in suffering and invites doubt, only solidifying limiting beliefs and attitudes that block success. Therefore, intention and integrity together form the key to manifesting our dreams.

There are a couple different aspects to living with integrity. First, we fall out of integrity when we say we’re going to do something and then we do not do it. Second, we lose our integrity when we leave things incomplete, unsaid, or undone.
