A few weeks ago there was program on TV that promoted doing the right thing, and it has been on my mind to blog about ever since. It’s why I researched and found the following quotes on the subject:
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity. W. Clement Stone
That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Clement Stone, became a very successful door to door insurance salesman as a young man, In that role he suffered lots of rejections (approx one sale /20 doors knocked)and got discouraged, then he decided as he walked away from each refusal to “Give thanks and be grateful for the 1/20th of a sale” he had just received, he went on to own his own insurance company. He certainly knew how to do the right thing, for others as well as himself.
Yes, there are many, many ways to do the right thing.
