To operate in the free market system, requires that you have personal integrity to differentiate between right and wrong.

I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.

The second month of the year has started and 2011 finds many of us starting to settle in for the long haul.

There are a few jack rabbits that started the year out sprinting, but the pack has caught up as their pace is waning, due to the long journey ahead of us.

There are quick paths to wealth in a free market system. Work the monetary numbers to your advantage, earning as much as you can at the expense of others, is one way.

Big bucks can be made in the shadows of life where no one can see all that transpires under the table.

The person that earns his money on top of the table by the honest sweat of his/her brow sleeps quite well at night. The service that you render to others does not go unnoticed or unrewarded.

Money is just a tool that allows you to better leverage the life that you live, to acquire the things that you want.

Scriptures tell us, “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Many big money transactions are made in the gray areas of life, neither legal nor illegal.

As we pursue our dreams, watch out for the nightmares that come gift wrapped in the belly of a Trojan horse.

Diligence and perseverance will allow us to reach our goals with personal integrity as our yardstick.

Personal integrity will keep you on a path that allows blissful rest at night. A sense of right and wrong within is your lighthouse beacon when the gray fog of life may find you pondering shady business deals.

In many corporations, it becomes a brand for leadership potential. People line up behind the executive with personal integrity.

The quick buck many times tarnishes the silver of the knight once known for his/her shining armor.

A professor once shared a story where there was no right or wrong answer, only consequences that ranged from bad to worst. He commented about several people in a life raft. To save the majority, you had to throw someone overboard. His question to ponder after describing the significance of the individuals in the raft was, who do you throw overboard?

His story was a walk down the lane of situational ethics. As in the story of the people in the raft, do you take the money before you that is offered from life’s shadows? You need money, to thrive and survive, but the person found thrown overboard may unfortunately be you.

Personal integrity will keep you clear of life’s snares from shadowy domains. This is our year if only we stay true to our strategic life plan.

Pace yourself and allow personal integrity to keep you on a steady course throughout life.
