Integrity is being undivided. It is definiteness of purpose and singleness of mind.
To live with integrity, you need to understand yourself and then act in line with who you are. This isn’t easy. It can be hard to gain that much self-knowledge.
Even when you have a deep understanding of yourself, there are many decisions in life that involve picking between imperfect options. Living with integrity in these situations is about making a choice and living with it. Not filling yourself with regret, or becoming a victim, but accepting your choices and learning from them when you don’t like the results.
This week on Forward Tilt, Isaac digs into what it means to live with integrity and how you can practice it in your life.
In this episode:

- Being in line with your self

"What kind of ideas are you hanging around with?"
There are a lot of factors that impact who we are today and who we will become.
Genetics, childhood experiences, conscious choices and the people we spend our time around all impact us. A popular maxim speaks to the power of other people's impact on who we are and says "you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." It speaks to the power that our community has to influence our behavior.
Thinking about the five people you spend the most time with is a valuable tool, but what happens if you zoom in on traits instead of people.
Often the people we choose to spend time with embody similar traits. This may make for good conversation, but it can hold us back if we are trying to change. They may be great, successful people, but they might not embody the traits you want to embody.
If you want to improve your ability to communicate excitement, but you hang around with laid back stoic people, you aren't likely to change.
This week Isaac explores a way to think about the traits of the people you hang around with when you are trying to change.
In This Episode:
A different spin on the average of five people maxim
Why you should focus on your strengths
The five traits you want to embody
