32 – The practice of personal integrity


(duration 20:00)

We explore the sixth and final pillar of self esteem: integrity, a congruence between your beliefs and behaviors

The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden

Super slow workouts can be quick and effective

It’s critical to sketch out your values explicitly

You can’t hide mistakes and missteps from yourself

The “Do as I say, not as I do” injunction is the ultimate example of defaulting on integrity

Hypocrisy is self invalidating

Your thoughts and values should be aligned with reality

Most people don’t grow up with good messages of integrity (or self-esteem in general) from adults

A condensed way of phrasing objective morality:
“Live consciously, take responsibility for your choices and actions, respect the rights of others, and follow own bliss.” N.B.

Ignorance is not really bliss in these important matters

Beware the misguided “authorities” who seek to use the force of law to control your choices and your life

Embrace the principle of reciprocal causation–by doing things that increase your self-esteem, you’re manifesting increased self-esteem
