The conscious leader has integrity.

She makes promises, and strives to keep them. She encourages others to make commitments too, and to honour them.

She knows that by committing to a decision or a path she creates a container for her energy, and that by sticking to that decision, by staying on that path, come what may, she keeps that container sealed. The pressure of the belief in her own self-efficacy grows.

She knows that a tiny pinprick is enough to burst a balloon; the smallest hole can drain all the water from a bucket. In the same way, breaking her word can drain all the energy from a commitment, and she can end up back with the same old habits, the same old problems.

She knows that when the pressure to break her word is greatest, that’s when she must hold firm. She knows that the pressure is temporary; it will pass.

The conscious leader builds her personal power by maintaining the integrity of her word.
