“There Are Some Things That Money Can’t Buy…Like Manners, Morals And Integrity.” – Unknown
It doesn’t matter how much money you have if you have no moral compass to guide your decisions. They say lead by example and that notion rings true. If your peers see you as a great ethical and moral leader, they will be inclined to follow your lead.
There are many ways to live a moral life. Some of those are listed here:
- Respect others no matter who they are and expect the same from them.
- Be helpful to others and ask for help when you need it.
- Honor promises and obligations, and apologize when you can’t do so.
- Stick with honesty and expect the same from others.
- Acknowledge, validate or say thanks – whether in person or online.
- Assume the best of others and understand they’re trying.
- Remove yourself when someone’s best isn’t serving your best interests.
Building a strong moral compass gives people, a sense of integrity, which is a tool for obtaining a sense of self-worth and self-confidence – confidence that is not dependent upon the outside world, but an internal feeling.
“Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.” – Laurence Sterne
