Well, I always support people who are honest and hard-working. But also, I do see a lack of competitiveness in such people majority of times. The easiest thing to do is to blame some external factors for your failure and many people adhere to this tactic trying to hide their own personal incapabilities. People usually say that others who have got rich were dishonest, I certainly do not agree to this. There are so many examples where people have earned huge fortunes by their talent, smart work and excellent dedication and if you want to check out the examples, just google the top 100 richest people in the world. If you take into account, some minor tax claims and all, then let me ascertain that no Businessman can sustain in this world if he obeys the taxation structure completely.
It’s not about which path takes you to prosperity and which doesn’t, it about the time taken to reach your destination depending on the path you choose. Going by the dishonest means certainly may make you rich faster but that is very short-lived, if you want to become rich following the path of honesty then it may a long time but once when you reach there you would definitely find all your efforts worth it. It is in the basic nature of human beings to enjoy respect and recognition on a societal level and going by the unfair means would never help you get this.
Well, these were the points from the analysis and justification point of view. But for people like me who believe in Karma, getting reach by unfair means is never an option at all. Being a very competitive person, I would try till the end to get rich by honesty and dedication. But if given the option to choose any between being honest and poor or dishonest and rich, I would always prefer being honest no matter whether I become Rich or not.
