Principles are like foundations upon which we build our actions and reactions. They are what facilitates our character building. Principles are often referred to as the ‘default response program of the human system’. Principles makes you choose to go the extra mile instead of taking the convenient short cut. Author, Stephen Covey once said “……. Quality of life is a function of aligning our beliefs and behaviours to ……. Principles”. They serve as a guide to our attitudinal dispositions. They determine and shape our perspective of what’s right or wrong.
However, living a principles-centred life comes with many benefits. It reduces our struggle with ‘walking out talk’. We are able make good decisions when we are driven by strong moral convictions. If we live principles-centred lives, we will produce what Stephen Covey called ‘Quality-of-life’ results! If we don’t live principles-centred lives, we risk making decisions based socially acceptable standards and our actions will be determined by circumstances. Always remember this:
“Only by centering on "timeless" principles and then living by them can we enjoy sustained moral, physical, social, and financial wellness” – Stephen Covey.
