Honest Means of Livelihood

Honesty is the best policy. We should be honest in whatever we do. It is, however, very difficult to adopt honest means of livelihood. This is often seen that people who adopt dishonest ways become rich overnight. On the other hand, those who follow the path of honesty are often seen struggling in life to satisfy their barest needs. This might have dampening effect on their nerves and they might be tempted to earn easy money by adopting unfair means. But we should remember that money earned by dishonest means never brings happiness. A man who adopts honest means to earn his living might spend a life of want and poverty, but he is contented. He is far better than a wealthy person who has amassed a huge fortune by adopting dishonest means.
