On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, your host Andy Albright comes to you live from his home in Treasure Island, Fla. to discuss the four behaviors of integrity and how they can help you. 

"One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised." --Chinua Achebe

Moral: Integrity is about not yielding to temptations when they come. Doing the right thing when no one is looking may not be enough. You might have to do the right thing when everyone is looking in order to be a person of integrity.

The 4 Behaviors of Integrity:

1. Keep Your Word
2. Guard Your Reputation

3. Make Fair Decisions
4. Establish Authenticity

1. Keep Your Word Quote:

"The value of a promise is the cost to you of keeping your word." --Brian Tracy

Moral: A promise made is a debt unpaid until you keep your word.

1. Keep Your Word

Requires Two Things:

  • Naked Truth (complete and unembellished version of the facts). Most people violate the naked truth quite often by dressing the truth in a lie's clothing of language.

  • Selfless Intentions (comes from what your original motives are). Knowing later that you did a good thing is an unintended consequence and doesn't define the selflessness of the deed.

    2. Guard Your Reputation Quote:

    "Your reputation is in the hands of others. That's what the reputation is. You can't control that. The only thing you can control is your character."

    Moral: Protect your reputation with good character. Good character is not realized by trying to convince others that you have it. But rather it is achieved by setting your course to an established, ethical set of principles that require your full attention and unwavering commitment.

    2. Guard Your Reputation

    Requires Three Things:

    • Duplication (Copy from those who have earned your enthusiasm).

    • Association (Walk with those who have earned your trust).

    • 4. Establish Authenticity Quote:

      "It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." --E.E. Cummings

      Moral: Authentic people do not allow their fears to prevent them from being themselves. If you are focused on being true to yourself in every moment, you are less concerned about the potential for rejection from others. Nothing is more liberating than being yourself as fully as you know how (realizing no one owes you anything).

      4. Establish Authenticity

      Requires Two Things:

      • Expression of Being (Authenticity is a quality of being). This is why we say "being authentic" and not "doing authentic." It must be expressed directly from the source (through the soul) in order for a person to be believable (to have presence).

      • Embracing your Image (Authenticity is a quality of accepting). This is the moment a person decides to be fearless enough to share their true self with the world like they have nothing to hide (warts and all).

        Edification (Invest in those who have earned your respect).

        3. Make Fair Decisions Quote:

        "The way you see people is the way you treat them, and the way you treat them is what they become." --Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

        Moral: If you treat a person's effort with a consistent viewfinder (established expectations), then you will get consistent effort (predictable results) from said person.

        3. Make Fair Decisions

        Requires Two Things:

        • Sameness (fairness shows no bias or favoritism). The Alliance believes we are all equals when trying to make our dreams come true. Hard work is the greatest equalizer in our culture.

        • Deservedness (fairness does not mean equal). It is a fact that life is not always fair, nor is it supposed to be. The Alliance provides reward for all that pursue success through our proven system. In this notion of fairness, you get what you deserve.

On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Andy Albright talks to you about how you can comprehend the two types of people: Doers and Believers.

Doer Quote:"If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything." --John Wooden

Moral: "I don't want to be your superman (a super doer), I just wanna be your man (a doer) and I'll be super." --Train

Believer Quote: "You don't become what you want, you become what you believe." -- Oprah Winfrey

Moral: "Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams, telling myself it's not as hard as it seems." --Led Zeppelin

Understanding What Makes a Doer Tick

  • Love: Cognitive (Reciprocity) and Investment (Loyalty).
  • Truth: Belief in the resolute urgency of now.
  • Work: Find meaning (obligation/duty) in what you deliver to society and you will never be without.
  • Confidence: Comes from wanting to compare yourself to others (sharpens the competitive edge).
  • Motivation: Keep your feet on the ground and what should be will be earned.

Understanding What Makes a Believer Tick

  • Love: Emotional (Compassion) and Intentional (Passion).
  • Truth: Belief in the absolute hope of tomorrow.
  • Work: Find purpose (service/care) in why you contribute to society and you will never work a day.
  • Confidence: Comes from not having to compare yourself to others (enhances self-worth).
  • Motivation: Keep reaching for the stars and what could be is revealed.

Other Aspects of a Doer

  • Focused Perspective: Can result in a tunnel vision approach (in the end, we only regret the chances we didn't see while being busy).
  • Survivor Mentality: Looking for something to do leads to burying mistakes of the present in order to move on to the next future conquest.

Action-Driven Motto: "Idle hands are the devil's workshop."

Moral: Get busy and stay busy.

Other Aspects of a Believer

Broad Perspective: Can lead to distraction (last person on their tiptoes misses the parade while waiting for permission).

  • Searcher Mentality: Waiting for something to be leads to blaming past actions in order to postpone an opportunity in the present.
  • Motive-Driven Motto: "You are more than the worst thing you have ever done."

Moral: Let your mess be your message not your excuse.

Doers vs. Believers

Traditionalists:

1926-1945 (What people with a servant mentality)

1946-1964 (When people with a realist mentality)

Believers

Xers: 1965-1982 (How people with a pragmatist mentality)

Y’s: 1983-2002 (Why people with an idealist mentality)

Two Kinds of Doers:

  • Thinkers (Think their way into a Do)  Beavers (Don't waste effort doing: get it right the first time)
  • Winners (Do their way into a Win)  Lions (Don't waste time thinking: clean up the mess later)

Two Kinds of Believers:

  • Feelers (Believe their way into a Feel)  Golden Retrievers (Don't get caught waiting on a promise: accept it into existence).
  • Talkers (Talk their way into a Believe)  Otters (Don't get caught waiting on a sign: speak it into existence).

Discussion Question:

  • Should I recruit a Doer vs. a Believer?

The Answer Lies Between Two Variables:

  1. Closing the Gap (it is faster to go from Doer to Believer).
    2. Sustainability (the doing has more endurance if it starts with a strong belief).

On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Andy Albright talks about hard work with Jeff Bright on a special edition of the show. 

What does hard work look like?

"Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle." --Abraham Lincoln

The three elements of hard work: Perseverance, persistence and passion.

How do we get those three things? Each has implemented action (behaviors), adopted values (attitudes) and absolute beliefs (truths).

With commitment and dedication, we get perseverance. With resolution and drive, we get persistence. With loyalty and devotion, we get passion.

Let’s look at each of those elements.

First: Commitment --> Dedication --> Perseverance

"I slept and dreamt that life was joy (pride in accomplishment). I woke and saw that life was duty (commitment to a goal), I acted (with discipline), and behold, duty was joy." --Rabindranath Tagore

Moral: When pride (joy) and commitment (duty) are commingled, we are at our best and hard work doesn't seem hard. Pleasure in one's work, puts quality in the effort.

Perseverance comes through pride: when becoming relentless (steadfastness) meet deciding you deserve better (self-worth). Dedication comes from discipline: when regarding the consequences as fearful (liability) meets recognizing tenacity (stamina). Commitment to excellence: when realizing you are indispensable (distinction) meets accepting diligence (assurance of superior quality).  

Second: Resolution --> Drive --> Persistence

"The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” --Confucius

Moral: Sometimes getting started is the toughest part of hard work. Having a process indicates our intent to stay around for the long haul (resolute to a proven system over a quick fix). Start by doing what's required to get started, then switch to what is possible; and suddenly you will be doing the impossible.

Persistence comes through endurance: when becoming obligated (fortitude) meets deciding to be obedient (loyal). Drive deals with desire: when regarding something as urgent (crucial) meets recognizing an opportunity (moment). Resolution to the process: when realizing your willpower (strong-mindedness) meets accepting consistency (routine).

Third: Loyalty --> Devotion --> Passion

"Truth is a tyrant -- the only tyrant to whom we can give our allegiance. The service of truth is a matter of heroism." -- John F. Kennedy

Moral: Our truth should be demanding of our time and effort when it is tied to a heroic cause like work. Being a faithful servant is only realized through acts done with passion.

Passion comes through enthusiasm: when becoming optimistic (positive) meets deciding to be willing (sacrificing). Devotion in credence: when regarding with faithfulness (honoring promise) meets recognizing morality (walking with maturity). Loyalty to a cause: when realizing strong emotional attachment (bonded involvement) meets accepting a common culture (shared beliefs).
