Week 3, Ramki says and I quote:
‘Some gems I liked:
- Your values need not be the same as another person. Not recognizing this is root
cause of many problems; people want to see their mirror image in others and get disappointed if they can’t find it! The basic values are summarized in our scriptures
as ‘Satyam Vadha, Dharmam chara- speak the truth, lead a Righteous life’ . Simple,
elegant and common for all!
- You can have group values. Later on you say have family values. That’s a very good
- Build your image around your values
- Living by example is the best way for younger generation to emulate the values.
- Open your arms to change, but do not let go of your values.
- Assign ‘me time’
- More material thing more stress.
- More you care and give more you reap the benefits
- You are answerable to yourself first. If only people will hear the inner voice!
- Compromising once leads you to do more and more.
In financial frauds this happens often; they feel ‘just once’; ‘every one is doing it’; ‘I will correct it next year’ etc ; it does not happen; once you cross the Lakshman Rekha you are finished. Ramalinga Raju of Satyam called it ‘riding the tiger’; once you mount the tiger there is no going back.’
