In Uganda today the most common words on an individual’s mouth are Covid 19 and the usual song Corruption. Did I say the usual song? Oh yes, Corruption is the most said word and fighting it is the most unkept promise by any leader in Uganda. But yet corruption just like all other world pandemics has got a vaccine and that’s Integrity. In this particular article, I will discuss integrity and its ability to change the life of a person. Integrity is abroad based word that has the potential to change human life. Usually, we use integrity only for the truth. A person who is marching on the path of truth in life never has to face great defeat since on the strength of truth, he continues to achieve partial successes in life.
Even in difficult circumstances, the human being holding the path of truth is not able to defeat any calamity and his unflinching thinking gives him the position of honourable and ideal in the rest of society. Integrity is something that makes a man honest and helps him stick to moral principles and those who have integrity can achieve anything in life and prove to be successful than others who do not have it. A person, who develops his inner integrity and makes it a way of life, will surely succeed and prosper in life and this is because once Once a person owns integrity mean completely absorbed in integrity they can achieve anything in life. It’s also key to note that integrity is earned and not bought but with years of effort, it becomes a part of your body and ultimately makes you a great personality. Therefore one needs to have a positive attitude towards life, stick to high moral values to achieve integrity and it’s only then when a person will be regarded as an integrity ambassador. Integrity creates harmony between personal moral principles and conduct, it is related to the whole life not particularly one section.
