Pithy Points to Ponder (A Leader’s Moral Compass)

As a leader, which way will you go when your moral compass brings you to the intersection of human nature and temptation?  Your life’s experiences and lessons learned, as well as your attentiveness (remaining aware of your surroundings), should provide you the sense of direction necessary to make the right decision.  You must have courage, faith and confidence that your moral compass will point you in the right direction to the path toward the intersection of character and integrity, and your ultimate destination of success and victory.

    Awesome! I couldn’t have said it better myself. So what drives your Moral Compass Sir?


    • My moral compass has been greatly influenced by my upbringing, life’s lessons, spiritual beliefs and faith, and the understanding that the Golden Rule plays a role in one’s character and integrity. From those things I mentioned are the ingredients that have contributed to my moral ‘direction.’ That doesn’t mean I am perfect, nor does it mean that temptation (and giving into temptation) hasn’t and doesn’t push me in the wrong direction. I am only human.
