I reading this older post about terrorism, I caught site of one of the quotes in the article. It says “Do what is right, not what is easy.”. That, men, is an alpha philosophy. It’s the philosophy of a real man. It’s the attitude of a determined mind.
We should always strive to do what is right. Sometimes, the right thing might be “easy”. There are moments when it will take little effort. But we’ve all encountered choices in which we knew what we should do – because it was correct and right – but it would be far easier to do the wrong thing.
Character is what you do when no one is looking, and that means doing what’s right. We don’t make our decisions based on what’s easy or hard. Just like we should make choices based on fact, not based on feeling – we should live by what is right – not by what is easy.
