I don’t care what you have or what social circles you frequent. The number of square feet in your home do not matter, nor do the businesses you own.
Hitler owned Maybachs. Hillary knew Donald long before either of the two knew they’d run for president. Slave owners had some of the largest homes in the nation of their time. And they owned the nation’s most lucrative businesses.
I don’t point all that out to say that these people are or are not unethical beings. Rather, I say it to say that I don’t care about the surface level things. I care about your character. A person with impeccable character could sit in a room with Adolf Hitler and stand firm in his/her conviction.
So, when I we meet, don’t tell me where you work or who you golf with. Let me know that you’re a good human being the best way you know how.
Make good character a priority.
