|Keep your integrity intact
|When you abandon your integrity in order to get what you want, whatever you get will not be worth having. When you go against your own best judgment in pursuit of a token treasure or position, even if you get it the victory will be empty.
Fulfillment and joy come from the accomplishments into which you put the best you have to offer. Rewards and victories are yours to treasure to the extent that they are expressions of your most firmly held values.
The value of the achievement depends on the values that went into it. There is no shortcut to a life of meaning. It cannot be bought or stolen. It can only be created. Be who you truly are while you work for what you truly desire. Keep your integrity intact, and the rewards will be sweet indeed.
