As humans, we often get so caught up in the desire for money, power and influence that we begin to lose focus of simple truths. My mother has always told me that “…what goes around, comes around.” — and I’m thankful that lesson has stuck with me. Another lesson she taught was that “if you tell the truth, there’s less to remember.”
With these principles in mind, I can’t help but blog about how amazed I am today. I’m shocked at how much I am surrounded by those who look past such simple philosophies. I certainly understand the eagerness and motivations to succeed.
When you can only become successful though while stripping the loyalty and trust from those around you, is your success truly worth the efforts? Of course it’s not…
But sadly, the same question I pose falls upon deaf ears.
And so it is, perhaps… that changes should be in store. If not for those around me, then for myself and those I care about. I’m done ranting — but if you have read this far, then please sit back and make sure you’re doing something good today.
For now, I’m heading for a drive to blow off some steam.
