Persons of Integrity

Your reputation is one of the most valuable things you have. It is said, “A GOOD NAME is worth more than great riches”. You can have great wealth and be looked DOWN on, seen as shady, but when you’re a person of integrity, people look at you and think, “I CAN TRUST THEM.

They always do the right thing, they’re honest, they’re fair, they don’t talk to me one way and then talk to my friends behind my back another way, they’re consistent”. Your name, your reputation is too important to let it become tarnished by not having integrity.

When Arjuna was thinking of taking a less than honorable course of action at the Battlefield of Kurukshetra, Krishna was quick to remind him that for one who has been HONORED, dishonor is worse than death. akīrtiṁ cāpi bhūtāni
