Honesty is the best policy. Remember this quote? When I was in my school, back in fifth standard I was thought this. It’s not just me but the whole class. Some followed this way and others didn’t. I am among the ones who followed the honest path. Those who are honest by now know that it’s very difficult to be honest. For me it’s creating not just problems but troubles.
I see peoples choosing the “other path” for the sake of success. And success for them is merely measured in terms of the green color. The more they have it the more successful they are. The “other path” you take may seem smooth at start but as you proceed it will get difficult. This is very opposite to the honest path.
When you work on honest path you get troubles and admirers too. This comes from my job experience. I worked hard. Everyday I had sweat bath. I lost my sleep. I lost my interests. I was distanced from my friends. All for the sake of this job. I kept telling myself.. “Just for another few days and things will get easy.” When that time came, I was accused of taking bribe.
This was the first time in my life someone said like this to me. I couldn’t stand it. I decided to quit the job. To my goodness, I got a suspension before quitting the job. I should have quit at the moment I was accused. Though I was given an option to work on another site by my employer, I didn’t. I lost my faith and trust in him.
Later on I found out that he recruited three freshers for the salary he used to pay me. Three for the price of one?? I was happy with my decision then. He is not the person whom you can trust. He doesn’t want to build a team but wants workers whom he can use and throw. He wants peoples who can dance the way he wants. I am surely not one of such.
Though happy with my decision, I felt very bad on losing the job. This was my best performance ever throughout my career. I wanted to work more here and learn more. It was not written in my faith. Sometimes I get a question, Is it worth working hard? The next moment the question disappears with answer “it is”. I look back and see myself working hard in tough conditions in a hope for better tomorrow. I end up jobless and being called as workaholic fool.
Good things to take were the good peoples who worked around me. I got many admirers who appreciated my work. I loved working with these people who worked hard. I wish to work with them again. With that hope I look forward…Who knows!!! Something great is waiting for me as I already have tasted goodness. 🙂
