Bandar Seri Begawan - Integrity should be a moral character embedded in every individual during business dealings to promote sharing and trust. It would be an ideal preference to deal with those with integrity as they would not cheat, swindle, break promises or bring harm to others.
Judging by the importance of upholding integrity in every individual, we should be committed towards efforts to establish a progressive community that possesses decent values of being faithful, ethical and dignified. In other words, a community with integrity.
This was emphasised by Mohd Redwan bin Abd Rahman of the Integrity Development Unit of the Anti-Corruption Bureau during a talk organised for some 50 youths and Universiti Brunei Darussalam students yesterday.
The talk was held at the Anti-Corruption Bureau Integrity Office in Kg Anggerek Desa, Berakas.
Integrity appreciation in the context of self-excellence means carrying out tasks with full determination. It also means to be responsible and trustworthy, not influenced by evil and greed, to review any information, being honest in enforcing truth, to dare to say what is right, to dare to admit mistakes, being pious and to seek blessings from Allah the Almighty
Integrity could not be traded, nor could it be transferred to others, nor could it flourish and live if efforts to empower it is neglected, and could not be rewarded without the consent of Allah the Almighty.
Misconduct is often due to weakness or lack of integrity.
Integrity can be upheld by practising decent values at all times by doing what is right and honest.
Tips in upholding integrity include recognising the boundaries of right and wrong, to know that our choices would influence our life in the future as well as to be responsible.--Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
