You Always Know the Right Thing to Do

“The truth of the matter is that you always know the

right to do. The hard thing to do is doing it.”

General Norman Schwarkzoph 1934 – 2012, 4 Star General,

Commander in Chief Central Command

 

 

As I see it . . . . . . . .

You always know the right thing to do

 

You will be tested on a regular basis . . . . and it can surface in many areas of life.

 

You can be asked to look the other way . . . . and allow something to slide by.

 

You can asked . . . . not to mention something in a report.

 

You can be asked  . . . .  to stretch the truth . . . . or to conceal something.

 

When you’re being tested . . . . you are being asked to compromise your integrity for someone else’s benefit.

 

You always know the right thing to do . . . . It may not be easy to do . . . . it’s the right to do.  When you do the right thing . . . . you’ll never have to look back with regret.

Good morning, Lou --- trust your gut and if it's too good to be true...it likely is.

Absolutely, Lou!  Having integrity will attract others with integrity around you, as you will build that trust with them.  Also, keep the people with no integrity at bay!

Yes it is called integrity and I wish more people would show theirs.  We all know the right thing to do - it is just doing it.

There is a great chasm between knowledge and action. Few make the trip.

I find it is easier to succeed when you overwhelm the opposition; much like General Schwarkzoph Lou Ludwig

I try to live each day without having regrets. When my mom and dad died I was at peace and had no unfinished business. They knew I loved them because I told them often. They told me too.

Great reminder.  I'd rather be remembered for my Integrity rather than my knowledge of real estate or anything else for that matter.

The "right thing to do" is always the "right thing to do". Karma is a nasty you-know-what and will come back to haunt you at some point.

Lou Ludwig integrity is the main ingredient when it comes to your reputation.  One day you wake up and 28 years in the business just happens.  Upon reflection you feel the best when you do the right thing... no matter what.
