When you cheat a system, you risk a lot.

The other day, a friend asked my opinion on doing something morally wrong but legally was fine.

For me, here’s how I think about it:

Yes, there may not be any legal punishments for what you are doing, however, you personally will always have your moral conscience of knowing what you did.

Doing something morally wrong could eat at you in ways you don’t anticipate.

Doing things the right way is always the best way.

A good rule of thumb for any actions you’re considering in life is imagine if the news saw you in the midst of that action.

If the action you’re considering doing wouldn’t make you look positive on the news, you may want to consider whether or not to do it.

If you stay passive, you will lose opportunities.

If you never ask someone out, you may never go on a date.

If you never try out for a team, you probably won’t end up making any teams.

People talk about how nervous it is to put yourself out there. I get it.

But there’s also an opportunity cost of not putting yourself out there.

Decide what you want to do, but don’t look back 10 years from now, and wish you were more active.
