What's in it for Me?


Principles

Are you a person of principle? Do others see you as such? 

In the past, a man’s word was his bond. How many can say that in this day and age? I wonder? Too many are only concerned for themselves, and in the process have forsaken basic principles taught to them by their ancestors. Most can look back on their grandfather’s life and see a man who never wavered on his word. 

Today many will say or do anything to gain whatever they are after. Their only thoughts seem to be, “What’s in it for me?” When their life is over will anyone sing their praises? Will they say that person was one of integrity? 

Do you stand up for what is right, or do what is easy?

Remember the Golden Rule. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Live your life by this and you will be remembered fondly.

  1. This is a great post. I definitely agree.

    People's morales and principles have definitely changed from their word being their bond. I find it quite sad.
