Reciprocity, Ethics, and Utopian Thinking

Getting ahead in life is never easy. Let's face it.....we need as many good contacts as we can get. And, in all reality, they need us. "No man is an island"...someone once said. This is the truth. Therefore, everyone is an asset(if not a friend). Burning a bridge should never be an option.

While this may seem like a utopian way of thinking, it really does not have to be. It is really all about making choices, and developing a sound state of mind. It is also very much about the reciprocation of good deeds, good will, and ethical business transactions. This is very much different to the current standard of doing things. What this means is.....patting your neighbor on the back, and lining his pockets so he may do the same. The other option is stabbing your neighbor in the back and taking the food from the mouths of his wife and children.....and I don't like the way that sounds.

Sure, there is a flaw to all theories, including the one above.....but, sometimes it boils down to which theory has the fewer flaws, the greater benefits, and, which one holds the keys to the greatest personal success and overall satisfaction. It boils down to morals, to money, and to sheer personal decision making. How do you want to live your life....and what kind of person do you want to be? Personally, I know my answer. Do you? Take care everyone!!!

See you next time!!!
