Our actions tell the story of who we are. Actions speak louder than words. So, if you want to convey that you’re a good person, it’s simple, do good deeds.
That alone should be incentive enough to want to make the highest available choice in how to act, every time. But, if that really isn’t enticing enough to want to do good, then it might be helpful to remember that on one of these days, you won’t even get to see how the day ends.
The sobering truth is that you’ll be measured only by the last thing you did, not the best. And, if it’s time to meet your maker, but you’ve been on a real rampage of acting like a jerk, it’s not likely that you’ll get to negotiate a do-over before you have to go for good.
So, since one of these days will end up being your last chance to be a good person, why not just choose to hedge your bets, and do good every day?
What’s so great about being a jerk, anyway? Imagine how much it would suck if that ended up being your legacy.
Our actions tell the story of who we are. So, be a good person, and do good deeds.
