“Look for three things in a person — intelligence, energy, and integrity. If they don’t have the last one, don’t even bother with the first two.” – W. Buffet
When you make a choice to violate personal beliefs, values, or desires of your heart, you feel it. You feel the consequences of disconnecting from the truest parts of yourself. Like you gave a piece of yourself away for cheap. Like you cheated yourself of wholeness.
You get hit with a healthy form of guilt that’s hard to ignore. One that won’t let you forget the decision that violated your integrity. Why does it linger? Why does it stick around? Because it’s not meant to be ignored. And neither are your needs or desires. That guilt is an alarm system put in place to tell you that you’re interfering with natural law.
But you go on to create this synthetic version of yourself, barely living life, getting by on stories and excuses of why you can’t have what you want. Meanwhile finding ways to cope with the weight of not following your passion and staying in integrity with your desires. What price do you pay for not allowing your best self through? Do you distract yourself by staying busy or self-medicating? How do your unmet needs manifest in your life?
When you’re in integrity and cooperate with the natural laws of the universe, you will attract what you desire. The key is to commit to disrupting what’s not working for you. Do your part by organizing to allow and receive the success that already exists. Combine who you truly want to be with how you show up and experience the satisfaction of living in integrity.
The Face Your Dragon podcast opens up the concept that what you are most afraid of and most resisting are the very things that will set you free
