It always amazes me to see how much shameless people can become when it comes down to money... It’s like when money is there, nothing else matters – pride, honesty or even friendship is instantly sidelined – it just doesn’t matter anymore, only the potential gain does.
I wonder if they realize how sick they look with greed in their eyes, ready to stab anyone in the back just to grab some $$$. In one sense it is quite amusing to observe people in this situation, they always look the same: avoiding eye contact and discussion, trying to cowardly walk away as fast as they can... And no matter the amount - be it 10€ or 10 Millions – it’s always the same dance.
The irony is that when people play this game on me, I actually feel sorry for them more than angry; sorry to see them falling so low for something which is nothing but a simple piece paper – when it’s not only a number in a computer.
I believe we all have a purpose and everybody has a different set of lessons to learn from this life. Avoiding the temptation of greed is a one of them, a very important one. So better start now and avoid yourself the pain in the future – because life WILL throw it at you in one way or another, eventually.
