June Powerful Word – Integrity – Week 3

This week, we’re talking about integrity and authenticity. John C. MacDonald once said; “Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn’t blow in the wind or change with the weather.

This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to get honest with yourself. Do you ever feel (or have you ever felt) that you compromise integrity for popularity? From where (and who) does that pressure stem?
