Why Honesty Is Still The Best Policy

Why Honesty Is Still The Best PolicyIs honesty really the best policy or it’s just a saying. I still strongly believe in this saying after trying to follow this saying with some initial confusion and doubts, I realized that it is not foolish but it’s a clever decision to follow this policy of Honesty wholeheartedly after understanding its basics, as it will save both time and money in the long run.

In modern world a number of things which are supposed to be well understood are actually misunderstood and truth or honesty is one such thing.

Today we use alternate ways and tricks to actually try to be what we really are i.e., honestly like in marketing on one hand marketers try to create a product which is in high demand and on the other hand they try to find people who actually require this product.

Role of Honesty in Marketing

A successful marketer actually knows the art of honestly revealing what its product or services stands for and who can benefit from them and how.

When a marketer targets the right group of people with right type of products and is able to state this, he immediately succeeds with his/her efforts while others who think that marketing is about selling without actually revealing the real facts to everyone (or else they are not likely to purchase) actually fail in there marketing efforts time and again until they get older and have enough experience to state things the way they are without actually referring to the word “honesty”.

So, all in all marketing is about honesty, providing the exact glimpse of the products or the services that they actually provide and that are actually required somewhere in the market and no other product or service is actually either providing these or is really capable of providing or may be the competitors products or services are really worthy of praise but there marketing strategy or team isn’t actually able to reflect its honest image in the marketing segment.

Anything which reflects a distorted image in market either by choice or mistake is likely to fail sooner or later.

Maybe today we teach and learn a number of complex marketing strategies and keeping aside simple things that are natural, make higher impact and are simply easy to understand, resulting in nothing new or even better.

Marketing is nothing but trying to abide with honesty and anything which is able to do this efficiently comes close to nature or super as a super-brand.

Role of Honesty in Our Personal Life

In our personal life we often reach this conclusion after experimenting with various policies and later coming back to conclude this.

For example, current debate on organic and inorganic foods can also be linked to this, as organic means natural which is also the truth or reality while inorganic means unnatural or man-made or artificial and is therefore not able to stand for a long period of time.

In our personal relations whether they are personal or professional we actually feel more secure, relaxed and calm when we share the relations with a greater degree of honesty.

Money Important or Omnipotent

Ominipotence of Money in Our Lives TodayWe cannot deny the role and importance of money in our modern society, it is responsible for shaping every sphere of our life today, in a way which is unprecedented which has led me to believe that money isn’t only important its omnipotent.

Money is involved in everything that is happening or taking place, its a form of energy which transforms itself from one form to another, from one hand to another, from one profession to another.

Today role of money has changed rapidly from being important to omnipotent, it is more or less source and destination of almost everything taking place in modern societies.

The way in which money is influencing our life is dangerous, which can lead to a blind society.

Most of our modern problems can be attributed to money and the way it is being used and misused. In the name of economic development we are somewhere getting too much influenced by money, it is creating a number of problems whether its environment problem like global warming, wild life or social problems, health problems. Each and every problem is somewhere connected to money.

Impact of Monetization on Life

Monetizing Life, Selling Natural Convenience of Life for MoneyMonetizing or giving a value to everything in a specific way (i.e., in terms of money), treating everything as an economic resource, trying to increasing efficiency beyond naturally permissible limits are the reasons behind this huge monetization practice.

1. Nature is An Economic Resource : Nature is definitely a source and resource, whether we know it or we don’t, whether we accept it or we don’t but when we try to make an efficient use of natural resources, we actually use artificial techniques to get most out of it, which obviously results in something which is quantity but lacks quality which is available naturally.

2. Changing Lifestyle : Life is about living, it is not just an economic resource, every life cannot be measured in predefined terms. Everyone has his/her own pace of living and none of them are useless or inefficient ways. Forcing people to adapt and adopt to a predefined scale is giving birth to unnecessary stress in society, which often results in depression, mental illness.

3. Life isn’t A Product or Part of Product Life cycle: Look at eggs and the way we get it, milk and milk farms, agriculture, anything that we draw directly from nature. Everything has life and every life has emotions, wants, whether its a hen or a buffalo or a cow or tree bearing fruit, how are we treating them, are they only a part of a product life cycle, do they deserve something more. We can see the results in various forms, whether its a health problem, eco system, global warming or organic food. When a living being is treated as a machine the results aren’t natural, they are artificial, lacking natural integrity.

What If Money Was No Object

Can we imagine how will things work if money was no object. What will happen if money suddenly had no role in business, politics or jobs, what are the likely consequences. The consequences that we can imagine or think are actually the real motive behind the scene. Appearance and disappearance of money as an object will only shift the reality in foreground or background.

In modern world we have shifted money in the foreground while its actual place is in background. Money is an outcome, its a result of anything that we do either with interest or under stress, the only difference is that in first case a person enjoys the tasks which not only improves the quality of work but also helps spreads a pleasant feeling around for everyone to enjoy while on the other hand a task performed under stress or compulsion for money is likely to be of poor quality and will make the whole environment tense and stressful (modern life).

Philosophy Behind Law of Attraction Vs Positive Thinking

Philosophy Behind Law of Attraction

Today our environment, lifestyle and surrounding is reflected in how we live today interpreting laws of nature, looking for shortcuts and easy ways to fulfill our artificial needs and desires, we aren’t actually willing to understand and work on basics, we simply want to apply those advanced natural laws to get results fast.

It is true that nothing is impossible, but it is also a fact that everything isn’t possible. Today we are trying to do things which will not solve root cause of our problems, modern solutions have proved to simply add more problems in our life. Our efforts to use natural laws to fulfill our short sighted selfish desires, getting motivated for wrong reasons, are not resulting in any real happiness or transformation, they simply put a smile temporarily, making us more greedy and selfish.

What is Law of Attraction?

Law of attraction states that we get what is on our mind. Our thoughts make up our mind and things that exist there, also appear in real world in near future. So, in order to get things that we appreciate in real world we must start thinking about it, start concentrating on them.

According to law of attraction, our dreams, imaginations, views turn to reality, our present situation, circumstances are a result of what we have been talking about, thinking in our mind, doing in our life. When we make a image in our mind and then preserve it using our actions, its likely to be realized in real world. It is like saying imaginations leads to realization.

Positive Thinking Vs Law of Attraction

Positive or negative thinking is actually what works behind the principle of law of attraction, our positive views in life help us to achieve higher goals while negative views create problem and obstacles in every sphere of our life. Thinking in right direction has always helped everyone.

We cannot develop positive thinking by simply looking at its benefits and trying to adopt it to get some results in our life. Thoughts and views cannot be altered or modified to fulfill our dreams or to satisfy our personal desires and we think we are able to do so or if we are aware and still use some shortcuts to modify our thoughts or views artificially then what we get isn’t a positive view or positive thought its an outcome of a negative mentality and thus a negative thought or view, which means that even if we are somehow able to manage the outcome or results, we won’t be able to get the ultimate results, the true happiness as either positive thinking or law or attraction isn’t about material gains (although they are achieved as a byproduct), reaching our personal goals, its more then that.

Honesty Vs Positive Thinking Vs Law of Attraction

Honesty is a real path to develop positive thinking, to achieve results that are today listed under law of attraction. Today we are more or less influenced by market and marketing forces we are so much under there influence that we try to think in terms of pros and cons, benefits and advantages.

If I tell you that whether its positive thinking or law of attraction or hypnotism, we can find each one of them, get benefits of each of them by simply trying to be honest to ourself and our surrounding. I know that we are today so much influenced by negative thoughts that honesty seems to be something which is impossible to follow in modern world, which is in fact wrong and a negative approach of negative thoughts.

Honesty isn’t a difficult thing to follow, its one of the easiest tasks to achieve, where you don’t have to process anything in your mind (in terms of computer science its like an output device, a monitor which simply displays everything that is typed, keyed in via the keyboard, there is no processing or CPU usage).

If we think it is not possible for us to even try to be honesty as it is sure to result in some bad experiences, then how can we develop positive thinking (when we find it difficult to be truthful) and if we are not able to develop a positive attitude, do you think we can get results from law of attraction. Goals which are only limited to our personal welfare will have similar results, goals which are limited to family welfare will show similar results, goals with a broader perspective will have similar results. It is important for each one of us to find success in our life, to reach ideal conditions to fulfill our personal philosophy of life but why should we adopt a path which is materialistic, cumbersome when we have get better results by following a positive, honest way which will not only insure our personal well being but also consider our environment, our surrounding, our planet.

Manifestation Vs Attraction

Today both terms philosophy of manifestation as well as law of attraction are used to convey the same message, that there is a secret, an alternative approach to find success in life, to get better results in life, without actually explaining the basics of these laws on which the nature works.

Trying to fulfill wild desires without actually attaching it to a social cause can never result in real satisfaction (true happiness). It is true that we can change our life by simply changing our views, our beliefs, our thoughts and it takes time to change them, it requires lot of patience and hard work.

We cannot change our self easily as we are not living in isolation, most of our time is spend in environment which is not conducive to such thoughts, we watch tv, movies, browse web, work in an office, talk to our friends and all these things push and pull our views, our thoughts and if we really want to make them positive, try things discussed about power of manifestation or law of attraction then we must first learn the tricks which can help us to keep our mind isolated from negative views and thoughts as and when we confront them (its like developing an immunity system, and most great saints, yogis master this only after years of practice).
