What does your moral compass say to others?
By Keith Bunn Jr.
Have you ever had some sort of service done for you? You know, had some work done on your house, work done on your car… things like that? Where they said one thing and then they did the exact opposite. They may have done a good job, but what do you remember the most about them? That they said one thing and then did the opposite, right?
Now I’m probably going to show my age here, but that is just common sense to me. You have to be a man or woman of your word!!! If you say you’re going to do something or not do something and then don’t do that, that can tell volumes about your character. Good or bad. I’m not just talking about if you own a business; I’m talking about every waking minute of your life! And you can’t back away from what you said or wrote down either, even though it maybe unpleasant at the time.
To give you an example, let’s say you did own a business and you stated a new rule either in some sort of meeting or wrote it down in the company’s handbook and the rule was that you would reward any employee if the met a certain goal at work. Now once your employees start meeting these goals, you need to reward them like you said you would. Now if a lot of employees meet these goals all at once and it is now becoming costly… you still need to reward them like you said you would. Because if you don’t, your employees will lose trust in your word and will no longer try to meet the company’s goals.
As I said before, you have to do this every waking minute of your life. This means you have to do this when you are dealing with family, friends, your co-workers, your boss, employees, vendors, etc… your word tells a lot about you. Don’t make it say the wrong things.
As with all my blog posts, and social media posts, I welcome any comments and feed back on the topics I write about. It is the only way you and I will learn more about our selves and each other, so ask away!
“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”
