Hard to believe the chutzpah, the arrogance, the sheer outright gall of these clowns thinking their idiot "theories" deserve to be written and printed in some legitimizing format. I'm amazed they weren't laughed off the stage.
"Oversimplifying somewhat, "honoring your word", as we define it, means you either keep your word, or as soon as you know that you will not, you say that you will not be keeping your word to those who were counting on your word and clean up any mess you caused by not keeping your word. By "keeping your word" we mean doing what you said you would do and by the time you said you would do it."
Integrity can also mean the wholeness and completeness of a thing.
For example, a bicycle wheel is whole and complete when it has all its parts. However, if you remove the spokes the bicycle wheel becomes out of integrity...but more importantly, it no longer works as a wheel. Lacking integrity not only does the wheel not work...but the whole bike no longer works. Integrity, the wholeness and completeness of a person or thing.
Now you might not find much value in that metaphorical context, and that is all it is...a metaphorical context. However, the value I get from it is an understanding about how one's life maybe is not working. When I am not true to myself and my nature...when I am trying to be what I think others want me to be instead of what I have in me to be...things in my life stop working. I can see how if we multiply this to including many people who are perhaps trying to be what they believe others want them to be rather than being true to themselves a picture starts developing of a world that doesn't work. Again, it is just a metaphor...but somedays it sure does look like the world doesn't work very well.
So while doing what you say is one definition of integrity...being what is in your heart and soul (being whole and complete) is another definition of integrity. Similarly, not doing what you say you will could be construed as a lie...trying to be what you think others want you to be could also just as eaily be construed as a lie.
