The right way is not always the popular and easy way. The fact that many persons are doing it, does not make it the right way.
An author said, “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
Sometimes, it seems you are the only one doing things differently at work, in the house and even in your social gathering. This could give you a feeling that you are probably wrong. You may feel unwanted.
Doing the right things when others are not doing the same; pays, although it could be tough.
Martin Luther King Junior said it is important to remember ethics and do what is right. There may be some temptations in your life to cheat or go with a decision that you don’t agree with morally but is important to do what is right and ethical.
Standing for what is right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character.” – Margaret C.S.
So many times, we avoid doing the right thing because it Is hard especially in a system where ‘everyone is doing it ‘.
Strive to do the right thing even when you are hated and rejected for it. It may take a while for it to be accepted, but when you endure the pains and discomfort for a while, the gratification you’ll get later is for a long time.
Make up your mind today to do the right thing, even when people try to stop you. The possibility of them stopping you is very high but try to stay strong, resilient and unrelenting.
Remember that the right thing is not always popular and easy. Live a life of value and enjoy peace of mind.
