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.

Philosophy of Honesty

Honesty Is Our Natural Choice

The truth needs so little rehearsal.  ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Honesty is a natural choice, its natural to be honest. We love to be honest and praise those who love honesty. Even today nothing has changed when it comes to natural human choice, we try to suppress this natural inclination by giving a number of justification to our own self and to those who ask us why?

Today when nature is distancing itself from us, we have a number of issues with nature such as global warming, protection from Sunshine (we have teared the Natural Protecting System called Ozone), endangered species, pollution in air, water and food. Along with these we have also polluted or natural thinking process, we no more believe in nature the way we used to, today we love (or pretend to love) artificial, processed, covered things, whether its new, views, water, food or even air.

We can’t drink untreated water as we fear pollutants, so is the case with other things including honesty. Today we feel that to be honest is like standing barely under the sunshine, we feel that its dangerous and may not be good for us. We don’t think that honesty is a natural tendency, a natural choice, we think its foolish, its childish to be honest in today’s world.

Philosophy of Honesty Our Natural Choice

No Honesty No Peace of Mind

We can’t think of a peaceful life, if we can’t appreciate honesty in everyday life. Our natural inclination towards honesty can’t tolerate dishonesty our own system starts malfunctioning if we are dishonest.

If we want peace then we must take this seriously, if we want health then we must think about effects of this aspect of life on our body and mind, we want happiness in life then we must try this rule of nature.

We can’t trick the nature with Dishonesty

Even if we have several reasons to satisfy our own logic we cannot trick the nature, our own human nature, nature of our body system, philosophy of our own mind and thinking. Logic is better suited for machines then men.

If we are dishonest in some of our dealing then its effect can be seen in a number of things that happen in our life, it can be mood swing, irritation or failures.


Honesty Is The Best Policy

Overall honesty is in fact the best policy which can be adopted in life. It is one of the easiest and most convenient option to choose. Its better to be honest and face the truth then to be dishonest. Covering up things, requires preparing mind for a number of situations, inviting a number of problems and at last confessing(at least to our own self, if we are lucky enough to understand the root cause) after a long period of unrest. Read more on why honesty is the best policy?

In order to appreciate honesty, we must learn this from our own experience, from our own trials in everyday life. Sooner we realize its benefits on our own the better it will be for life and life of this mankind on this planet.

Discover Philosophy of Honesty & Enjoy A Happy and Peaceful Life
May be most of us think ourselves to be honest, may be it is true from our own perspective but is it really true. There is one way to know whether its true or not, either we can delve deep in philosophy of honesty or we can take a simple test.

Honesty is a lifestyle of a winner, someone who is not afraid of truth and its consequences. He/she is not honest because its the best policy or because he is aware of its benefits but because its honesty, a single path which is the right path.

A person who is really honest always enjoys happiness, peace of mind, tranquility as he has nothing to process in his/her mind, there is nothing that can get uncovered. Whatever is there is there because it has to be there. He has neither added nor subtracted anything anywhere. This is a simple test (as per my knowledge/information/experience) which I feel can be used to reposition our own strategy on honesty.
