It is a popular myth in society that once you have a lot of money and/or achieve celebrity status in society you will be admired and will continue to be admired by billions of people worldwide. What is always left out is the truth about what you have to do to get to the top successfully and remain there.
Most knowledgeable people think that you have to work hard, apply yourself to your chosen goal or specialty, get a prestigious education, set up the right human connections, and with a lot of luck rise to the pinnacle of success. What this leaves out is a very important reality. You have to have a strong moral code to guide you on your climb to DESIRED success and celebrity status. Once you do get to the top you will only stay there for longer than the proverbial 15 seconds of celebrity status only if you continue to apply your moral code at the profession of your choice.
Many try to rise to the top by many hook or crook tactics and once they succeed they wonder why they are not trusted, respected, and admired by their peers and society at large. Once you reach the top you have to be trusted, respected, and admired by most of the humans which you are in contact with and if you don’t have a strong moral backbone your will crash and burn leading a disillusioned life which may lead to a depressing lifestyle of overindulgence, drug abuse, family breakup, and ultimately great unhappiness.
The two most important moral principles to have in your personal life are don’t lie and don’t commit adultery if married. If you lie to people including your spouse and closest friends you will not be trusted by them and trust is the human bond that keeps people together in any human relationship. Lie and don’t be surprised if people start not trusting you, not respecting you, and not admiring you anymore. Once that trusting bond is broken, you will almost never get it back from family, close friends, acquaintances, and even the general public.
In this hedonistic culture you can develop a very casual untrue belief about the unimportance of sexual exclusivity with the opposite sex. The truth is that no woman wants to be cheated on sexually when unmarried and especially when they are married with children and have long term financial responsibilities to the family unit.
Cheating by a man means that the woman has to unjustly deal with the fear of abandonment, moral outrage, and intense jealousy which frequently can lead to many bad thoughts of selfdoubt and depression. Rule number one for a man seeking a temporary or long term relationship with a woman. DON’T SEXUALLY CHEAT ON THE SIDE WITH ANOTHER WOMAN while in one relationship with a woman who you are currently interested in!!!!!
Once your sexual infidelity is revealed, as it eventually will, given enough time, your reputation with acquaintances of the offended woman will be in the toilet and you will have to move on to a new set of women friends in another neighborhood where you can once again start establishing a trusting reputation among the new women in your life if you want to be respected as a responsible trustworthy good male and potentially a good mate.
If you are a man or a woman without a lot of money you can still have honest sexual relations with the opposite sex if you decide that the relationship is just not working out or will not work out in the future. Don’t lie or make excuses or hedge around with uncertainty. Honestly say, “I have decided that our relationship isn’t working good and I have decided to move on with my life.” You will be respected for your honesty and your reputation will remain intact in the community. Then go and try a new sexual relationship with someone you think you will like better or better relates to your personality.
It is no secret why many from BYU (Brigham Young University) are chosen for responsible positions of leadership in society. They are moral human beings who don’t lie, don’t steal, and don’t commit adultery when married. The new impressionable generation is largely not being raised with an updated strong moral code for the 21st technological century and trust in leaders, especially political ones, is at an all time low and getting worse.
You can’t succeed in society and stay in a high professional position unless you have a strong moral code and the new secular one which I recommend for everyone in the world is don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder!!!!!
If you are the common man or woman at the bottom of the economic ladder my advice is the same. Use my new moral code to guide you as you struggle with personal effort, ability, and achievement to reach the highest social and professional levels in life as I did. I started from the bottom rung of the economic ladder too and rose to a high level in scientific analytical thinking and writing. I am not at a social pinnacle but am at the writing pinnacle which I desire for the time being.
LUCK HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUE PERSONAL SUCCESS IN LIFE. IT IS ALL UP TO YOU PERSONALLY TO SUCCEED OR FAIL TO REACH YOUR CHOSEN GOALS IN LIFE AND A STRONG SECULAR MORAL CODE WILL HELP YOU TO GET THERE!!!!!
