INTEGRITY: Battling with the mountain within

I welcome you to another day, it's a signifant day in that it marks the end of a year in our national life and also ushers in a new dawn. Tomorrow is Oct 1st,Independence Day and Nigeria will be 49 years! We give God the glory for taking us this far, things are getting better,I picture the New Nigeria of my dream...that's a discussion for another day. I will be at the platform tomorrow at Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS)--it's a must-not-miss program.

We started our discussion on integrity yesterday and I think we'll dwell on this topic a little longer than usual because it cuts down to the very challenge we face as individuals and nation. Integrity also means wholeness, when your inner self is in unison with your outer self. Integrity also means fixed, predictable and statute. A man with integrity is very predictable because you can quarantee what he will do in particular situations.

Most people pride in being unpredictable...hmm...I have come to know that there's a problem with that statement because it actually means that they are unstable, unreliable and untrustworthy...are u shocked? Pls don't be.  Another name for integrity is character, and character is something that is dependable and fixed like a statute.

Your character protects your gift. Your character is more important than your a saying goes " your gift will take you to the top but your character will keep you there"...We will continue tomorrow, this issue of integrity is one too heavy and vital to rush over.  Be inspired, be motivated to take the giant steps to make the necessary changes to be all the best that God has designed you to be. 

You can make it...I believe in you...see you at the top...TAKE CHARGE!
