WHEN YOU GET CAUGHT

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with people first...then business Ran Right Realty 636943 licensed to thrill

Caught doing what you may ask? No need to specify as the dynamic itself testifies that something isn't right and you are the star-player in it all. To be able to plot a steady-course, do right and maintain honesty so that your integrity is intact and growing is easier said than it is done. Why? The battle-field is the true testing grounds not the mind, the lips or the professed

EMBARRASSMENT

What you don't learn in books or by faith or not risking is well taught by the dynamic we call embarrassment where you see in a fraction of a moment how something didn't go right or as planned & we not only feel the inner "heat" from the act but acutely see the part we played or didn't play. Very useful for growth and starting fresh if handled properly but at a very uncomfortable price...

HUMILIATION

What a powerful word to describe a negative power at work doing harm through shame, disgrace, dishonor and degradation. Once one has visited with this they quickly learn not to visit with these circumstances that caused it while wanting it to end immediately I might add. Its a inner painful lesson that sticks saying don't do this again.

CROSSING OVER

Where are the boundaries or fences, red lines or warning signals that tell us beforehand to do or don't do something? Well they are in place and also invisible but always on duty to alert one before hand. The problem is not with the heads-up but with adhering or obeying the prompt that says DON'T DO or DO!

CONSCIENCE

Broken down to the Latin, CON (with) SCIENCE (knowing) is ever alert like a rudder on a ship to direct and help plot where we want to go and where we do not want to go. We don't have to consult with it as much as just listen and obey as it automatically activates without being sent for. It is tried, true & a helper

GREED

We are allowed to get ahead, participate and "have" whatever is presented and we all have the ability to pursue until accomplished but with an interesting silent "caveat" when doing so. Greed when exposed clearly states an over-reach or dominant portion aggressively taken at whatever cost. What's it saying?

NOT THE RIGHT WAY

You over-did-it incorrectly. Everyone can see it and we are the first to know however greed has a buddy called DENIAL that answers immediately and can defend, put-off and explain with tenacity why it is okay but only for that squandered, selfish moment it goes to work. When you see it, you are now prisoner of it if you summon and obey this denial or excuse making mechanism. It ends up working against you not for you

RELATIONSHIPS

Abuse or aggressive selfish behavior takes its toll out collaterally on everyone more often than not. Those closest to you are harmed right-away when you are & if not checked deep damage can result from it. This pain enters the soul & it is hard for people to recover from easily. Time may be the only remedy if at all

CRIMINAL COURTS

Its like shock therapy when you find yourself in court where everything is slowed down, outed and linked to you and your conduct. There, everyone sees and passes a judgment on what they see and in some cases coming with stiff penalties or slaps on the wrist. Its one thing to remorse in private and another in public

REGRET

Disappointment or feelings of sadness that emanate from YOU exist to point out what you did or could have or shouldn't have done followed by a succinct lesson of a missed opportunity or an ill-spent one. Take-heart however because it is a stepping stone to healing if we respect it & let the pain of the message do its work

SECOND CHANCE (s)

Thank goodness for the chance to come back, do-over or start again because without it we would all be through, dead or maimed going through life if we survived the error. In this mode of change (repentance), we see clearly what took place and we want to never repeat it again having learned our lesson.

WHY GETTING CAUGHT...?

Who wants to live a life thinking or acting-out that they will get caught? This is no life at all but a type of living hell brought about by dysfunction and failing to take correction and or admit a mistake. People who eventually get "caught" at whatever it is are relieved and glad. Imagine that. They want to get saved from it!

CALCULATE THE RISK

We cannot pretend to live constant saintly life's & expect 100% performance for the good. However we have the next best thing which is a warning system, a reentry program & the ability to put a belief in action that helps us recover and go on. When facing the miscellaneous cross-roads of decision, give a good pause

HOW NOT TO GET CAUGHT?

Don't do or plan to do anything that requires getting caught doing! Remember that all things are allowed but how does it profit you either in the moment or with the end result. When one suffers from NOT giving in to temptation, that pain quickly passes and a reward of satisfaction and other good things follows guaranteed

It's so much easier to be truthful and live a life of integrity. I just can't imagine the horrible pain of being caught at something that takes you down a hole of shame, judgment, punishment, and loss. Yet that is where bad decision, greed, and dishonesty take people.

Hi Richie- it is simple...telling the truth, acting with integrity is just a lot easier than not. If you mess up, admit it. There is no shame in making a mistake, but there is if you try to cover it up.

Good morning, Richie Alan Naggar the solution to not getting caught is to not do anything wrong.... everyone makes honest errors, but there are characters out there who will attempt anything and everything.... they eventually always get caught!

I agree with Kathy Streib .

Admitting when you were wrong and making it right makes all the difference.

So, if I'm understanding, and that's a big IF because I'm the most vanilla guy you've ever met, the moral is to keep it a secret and don't get caught...

Nailed it?

Always tell the truth and you won't get caught!

Obey the rules and you won't get caught!

Say nice stuff on other peoples' blogs and you won't get caught!

Nailed it?

Richie, telling that truth makes it really easy to not get caught. There's nothing to get caught for if we conduct ourselves with integrity, honesty, and respect. That goes for towards others and ourselves. I enjoyed reading your post.

Better to get caught doing the right thing than the wrong!

There's some wise advice here, my friend!

Jeff Dowler, CRS ...I remember being accused of theft and was amused. Why? I didn't do it. Being "free", simple & innocent is a highly coveted state to be in
