As a member of the church, the principles of “honesty”, “responsibility”, “duty” have been drilled in my head for years. Primary, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Young Men, Missionary Service…Marriage! the list goes on, all have taught with one resounding voice that we must seek to be good ethical people. The challenge becomes to somehow hold these standards wherever I am asked to stand; The business world included. Many think that in order to be successful, you must be willing to lower your standards or step on your colleagues. I disagree. I believe that there is great value in an honest employee who works hard, and lifts those around them. I’ve been positively influenced by many such co-workers throughout my short work experience. In the end, good always has value.
