If you notice that there are so many people at the bottom and count decreases as you go up and at the top.!! only a single person… If I will ask you if you must participate ideally what would be your posting. Most of would like to be at the top. But if I ask you practically where would you go then our answer will change, and we will prefer to be at the bottom, why is it so? Because it is safe at the bottom.
This is the common phenomena with as mostly we tend to play safe around risk and with this mentality we get trapped in competition, there is always less competition at the top and less at bottom and it is not easy to be at top,so we decide to beat bottom although we wish to be at top.
Honesty is somewhat like be at the top as there is less competition, believe me in any aspect of your life you will never regret to choose Honesty as your policy, it may take a little time to reach your goals but there are more chances of reaching.
We all have learned one story in school about the woodcutter and ax, he went to jungle and while cutting wood his ax fell in well and goddess comes with golden ax which he dines then silver ax but he still denies no this is not my ax finally goddess comes with old rusted metal ax and he says yes it is mine, and goddess gives him all three as prize for his honesty, in reality we all get small chances to prove our honesty but we fail we go for shortcuts we try to bribe others for small deeds, most people are honest when someone is looking but when they are alone they take a chance. Please keep in mind that Any shortcuts will take more time.
We can take a very simple example Reliance Industries in the big company which crossed a milestone, recently the market capitalization of this company crossed 8Lakh crore and as compared to this Tara group companies are also equally big but when it comes to a choice which one you choose, obviously TATA, why? Because we all know that Honesty is their policy and as group TATA’s have earned respect… So same applies with you me and we all.
So be Honest and best of luck.
