I thought I understood this word till I came across this word, Structural Integrity Test which has to do with testing an existing stricture’s ability to carry the assigned load limit. In a sense, the existing structure is being tested for its wholeness.
It is so funny how little things can flick the light bulb in our heads. From that day, I understood why integrity is wholeness. The root word for integrity is from the Latin adjective, integer. In Maths, an integer is divisible by 2 if its last digit is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. It is considered a whole number
Integrity is when the thoughts of our minds, the desires of our hearts and our actions are integrated. That is a state of wholeness. So for instance, when I think of making a call, I don’t just desire or want to do it, but will also follow through with my action by calling. In this part of the world I live in, the elections will be next year, and the buzz word we will hear from every politician is, “I am a man or woman of integrity”
So, the question is how I do become a man or woman of integrity? Let me share this quote:
“Integrity is not a given factor in everyone’s life. It is a result of self discipline, inner trust and a decision to be relentlessly honest in all situations in our lives”
According to John Maxwell, self discipline, inner trust and most importantly, a decision to be honest can make us people of integrity
Mediate on how these three qualities can be enhanced in your personal life. The development of these three will lead us down the route to integrity
May we indeed be people of wholeness. I wish you a happy new month

Sure, so I do believe! Thanks for your feedback, Emmanuel
Integrity in leadership or any position of influence will be key. We can’t influence or lead if we are not trusted or have integrity.
Great point about structural integrity!
