Unfortunately these days, people are greedy, in many ways.They want to make a fast buck. They rip off designs and products from another company and claim it to be their own. They want all the glory and acknowledgement of being the person to get the credit for other peoples time, hard work and efforts. They want to be recognised as the best without having to put the work in. They want to have the biggest and most expensive cars/houses to make them feel important without honestly doing the hard graft to get there
Integrity, Loyalty and Unethical behavior is present in so many parts of society and not just in the work place these days. How many of you know of someone who has accused another person for their lack of morals, Integrity or unethical behavior, when in reality, the accuser was the guilty party.
How many of you know someone, who you once thought of as a friend, that would now climb over you to take credit for something and to make themselves feel like “The Big I Am”.
How many know of someone in an authoritative position that used their status to manipulate others and make them feel small and worthless, and to laugh about them to other colleagues?
It is quite amusing that those who throw the above words around so willy nilly, are sometimes the ones who have behaved in a manner that leaves their own character to be questioned. Karma has a way of dealing with it.
The saying that when you point a finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you is true. The one who’s integrity and behavior is in question, often place their guilty feelings onto others to make themselves feel better.
Sometimes, day to day life is so hard for each and every one of us, that the smallest word of praise or thanks, the tiniest amount of appreciation or acknowledgment can go so far. If you are true to yourself and others, if you treat people with respect and dignity it will come back to you in pleasant ways.
You don’t know what someone else is going through, their daily struggle, their money issues, their relationship problems or what their mental health is like. Your behavior towards that person could make one tiny change in how they look at themselves and their ability as a person.
Don’t be the first to cast that stone without judging yourself…….
