Bottom-line isn't everything

Post by Luomo » Sun Aug 18, 2013 5:29 pm

Donald Trump will tell you that the bottom line is all that matters. Truthfully, its not really so hard to get ahead if you abandon your scuples and principles. Trump's way is the easy shortcut to success. It's much more satisfying to become successful and retain your integrity all along the way.

Bill Gates has learned that lesson, and he is nearly finished with the job of buying all his integrity back.

The term "success" has been taken over by people who think monetary wealth is everything.

Lack of money is how I know when I won. "Yeah! I spent it all! Woo-hoo!"
