Trusting firsthand experience as a source of authority demands a time-intensive process of testing its legitimacy for ourselves. Once self-trust can be established, we are more free to interact with others from a base of greater integrity and form more reality-based relationships.

Trusting firsthand experience as a source of authority demands a time-intensive process of testing its legitimacy for ourselves. Once self-trust can be established, we are more free to interact with others from a base of greater integrity and form more reality-based relationships.

If you are still here and breathing, some part of you remains committed to being here. Integrity-building results from any process that strengthens and develops the force of self-commitment. Once we have discovered that area in our lives that we can stand behind 100% without wavering, that very force of commitment can also be redirected to assist other areas in our life suffering from integrity loss or, lack of follow-through. Commitment is a force, an energy that can be increased and regulated and then, applied wherever necessary.
