“Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching”
We all lie in our life for different reasons, whether it saves us from the situation or we fall into dangers.we live in a world where integrity isn’t talked about much or isn’t valued how much it has to be.we live in a world where ‘the end justifies the means’. It does not matter what way you take to achieve your result but all that matters is your result or success.
For instance,sales people over promise exaggerate and deliver in the name of making desired sales for the month.applicants lie about their job strengths and weaknesses in interview because they desperately need a job to put food on their families plates.Ceo overstate their projects in the fear of losing their jobs.Institutions lie about their results and performance.
“There is always a good reason to tell a lie but there is a better reason to tell the truth”

Every person might have have gained by short cut ways but short term results comes at an incredibly high price with far consequences. Such a person loses his ability to be trusted.
“Profit in dollars or power is temporary but a group of people to support you is forever..”
There is no substitute for hard work. This sentence is one of my all time ffavourites. I myself have witnessed many situations where the fast achieved are lost at the double speed. One knows the value of something only if he knows it’s worth and what it took to be the way it is.
A real life experience that inspired me to write this. One day I picked a lottery ticker from a nearby shop. It was cost me rs.10 to buy. Luckily I won a prize money of rs.100. It was clean short cut. Then the evil smiled. I watned to try my luck again. This time I put all my prize money. After that I had to return with empty hands. If I had earned the money on my own I would have thought twice before playing a blind game.
