This rule is more prevalent than I had thought. I’m not out of touch with the reality of the world. However, I had thought that there was some ethical or moral character that would come into play in back-to-the-wall situations. Like political races or not selling out when you encounter a challenge that requires personal growth. But, you must know by now that I’m an idealist who is probably out-of-touch with the earth-plane reality.
In the course of my business lifetime, there were several customers who thought they controlled our company because they were contracted for significant sums. I must say that the combined agreement of our employees was never to sell out who we were for the money; and we didn’t!
There was also an occasion when I gave a speech to a Fortune 50 corporation where there was excessive coaching by internal people of how, when, and what I should say. I followed their advice. The presentation was a disaster. I vowed then that I would never do that again. I would be my authentic self or not speak. When they sent me the payment for the speech, I sent it back, saying that I had not earned the sum sent to me; fully or in part!
So, what’s it with you? Write and let me know. Is it all about the money or am I really out-of-touch with reality?
