Did you know that
Housing Is Not The Only Bubble To Burst?
Many things you will observe are very fragile and can change from one state, one impression to another swiftly. Take the recent Tiger Woods flap about multiple women outside his wife. "Reputation" IMMEDIATELY is damaged.
I'm not really sure why in life with all things fragile we are surprised when the bubble pops. I guess we don't like change. Or maybe it is perhaps that we have one rock solid perception and to alter that shakes our reality hard. Very hard.
Sometimes the old adage of don't always believe what you see or hear or read or even think, might be the best common sense advice to not suffer life's letdowns.
In life sometimes what you see and experience serves as an excellent bad example. We are all flawed so I don't mean to get up here and tell you on a pedestal anything you don't already know. But reputation is based on trust. And trust comes from your internal character. In our business and personal lives trust and reputation can be lost in a flash. They say the true mark of your character is how you are behaving when no one is watching. Well if that is not good then it later comes to light when EVERYONE is watching, well then the cat's out of the bag, despite any statements or back pedaling.
Remembering in another sense that little eyes are watching you all the time should guide you straight with your reputation if you care about a good influence in your life. We all make mistakes. But hopefully not such critical ones that we can't be forgiven and get a second chance.
