It’s Your Choice
I hear about people who lie, cheat, and steal, and I ask myself why? Are they so mediocre that they have to lie to make themselves look good? Are they so desperate that they have to cheat to get ahead? Are they so hopeless that they have to steal to satisfy their greed? Most of all…are they so shallow that their guilt doesn’t haunt them every single night? Do you want to live that way? It’s your choice.
Some folks think their poor behavior is acceptable. I’m here to tell you it’s not. They’re willing to turn a deaf ear to their wrongdoings. The truth is, when you think you’re fooling the world, you’re only kidding yourself. A life of honor offers abundant rewards; a life of dishonor comes at a very steep price. Your conscience should be your guiding force every day.
I’m probably not telling you anything you don’t already know. But ask yourself: If it’s so obvious, why don’t people listen to their conscience? I’m not asking you to be a saint, but let’s get real.
It’s Your Choice
You have one life to live. And YOU get to choose the path you’ll take. You can take the high ground and live your life with honor and integrity. Or, you can take the low road and sell your soul to the highest bidder. At the end of the day, when you’re lying awake at night, you will know which path you’ve chosen.
Care not only about where life is taking you, but about how you’re getting there as well.
Don’t listen to me; listen to your conscience.

Frank, well done my friend. One of your best and that is saying something. I especially love the idea that only a shallow person could sleep well at night knowing they did bad things. So true. God bless and keep up the great work.

Thanks so much Augie. I’m glad you like it 🙂
What some folks overlook in their quest for power, fame, and fortune is that following your conscience, and having inner peace, clearly outweighs the material rewards received along the way. After all, you have to live with yourself for the rest of your life.
Thanks for taking the time to write.
