Do you know who you are? Really? Down deep? Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? To go where few have trod? Are you fully aware of yourself?
This is more than just a simple question. As humans, there are many times when we will have everyone fooled, but underneath, we know the truth. Fully one’s self show the lack of one trait: Integrity.
A pastor once told me that Integrity is what we do when no one else is watching. This can easily be extended to include where no one else can see or know, that is, inside your heart and mind. This is where Integrity starts. If you start by kidding yourself, no true Integrity can follow. There is nowhere else to go. If you lie that deeply, you will lie to everyone else. Start with truth and honesty and it will flow out and others will notice.
Be aware of what you lead yourself to believe. If you are caught up in who you are now and not move toward who need to be, you will not have results. Fool yourself into thinking you are, and failure will follow you in spades. Starting with Integrity leads to good character, which leads to results. Grow through the changes, do not fear them.
