Every. Single. Day. we are either making Deposits or Withdrawals inside of what I call our Integrity Bank.

The Integrity Bank balance is determined by your daily actions or lack thereof. Those who are their word, and who do what they say they are going to do, have an Integrity Bank that is overflowing.

Your word is everything. Be your word. Every time you do what you say you will, when you say you will is like making a deposit into your Integrity Bank.

Any time you put off a workout, stray from your nutrition, show up home 15 minutes late, call someone a day later than you said you would, not deliver on what you promised, is a time that you are making a withdrawal from your Integrity Bank.

An insufficient Integrity Bank is exhausting.

Like many who write rubber checks and are irresponsible with money, the same holds true with your word.  When you are casual with your Word its the same as having a sub 500 credit score.

No one will give you the benefit of the doubt. When you tell someone you will do something they automatically count on the opposite happening.

Because of your proven track record.

BUt it doesn’t have to be that way. No matter the balance of your Integrity Bank today, you have a choice to take a stand and start making deposits.

Over time, and with intention you can repair your Integrity Credit and start increasing your balance by simply – but not easily – building up your Integrity Bank.

It’s not easy because it takes time. Old self-gravity is sneaky and it will take time to truly be a man of your word. A man who, when you tell someone it is done, they know they can count on it. That it’s money in the Integrity Bank.

What can you do today to make deposits into your Integrity Bank?

The balance must be built up because we are all human and I can guarantee you, you will have to make a withdrawal at some point.

Don’t be the guy that gets the overdraft in the mail because he isn’t a man of his word.
