Integrity. People know about this value. You know it too, right? You see it in people’s LinkedIN profiles, on their facebook pages, their websites, their pitches…
But what do they know of integrity? They just use it to try and sell themselves, poor mediocre bastards. Integrity when you hear it is just like something those mediocre people would say to try and look good.
What about the people who actually value Integrity? Who live and breathe integrity? Well, those people you and I talk a lot about. Remember that business partner or that friend who said (did not even promise or give his best word) that he’d do something and really did it. He really did what he said he’d do. On time. Exactly as he said. Now remember how many times you’ve told others about his deed.
We talk about the people who deliver on their promises. Why? Because they are so very hard to come across. We’re used to liars, to lazy people, to people who don’t care about anything or anyone. So when we finally see someone who DOES what he/she SAIS, we’re like “Oh my God! Unbelievable.” So next time a subject related to that person strikes in a conversation you go like: “I know someone who…”
This is perhaps one of the best networking tools available in the world. I mean it’s obvious. Maybe that’s why it is ALWAYS over-looked. People will always recommend those who live and breathe integrity. Because they are always trust worthy. And we only want to recommend trust worthy people.
Find integrity. Other then inner peace, it will open doors in your quest to get noticed. The best doors.
