Honest and dishonest ways for earning money.

India
March 7, 2011 8:27am CST
Every man has to earn money for a livelihood. Money can be earned in both honest and dishonest ways. There are some who leave no stone unturned to earn money but whatever they do they always stick to the path of honesty and never try to deviate from that path. There are also some other whose only motto in life is to earn money and they never care for the ways they have to adopt for it, the way may be honest or dishonest. Their only concern is to earn money by hook or by crook and nothing else. Which category do you belong to or do you belong to any other special category? Please do not hesitate to share it with the fellow mylotters?

with such simple question,, i know dishonesty will arise:) however everyone i think have been tempted to pertaining to money specially in times of need or with the need of our loved ones. But as far as I know, only the money that comes from the honest way are the only money for keeps. money earned from wrong doing are like coins in a piggybank with a hole in the bottom.

I tried every way I can to be honest with my personal motto, and as always, I hit the hurdle, and I was taken advantage of, that is the result of my honesty. At the end, I have to beat myself down to be such a stupid person. Maybe, dishonesty has its way to help. But it won't survive for long.

well so is life , for me i have decided to do business the honest and sincere way , this is all because i have seen what dishonesty does to some people in making money, you go through tough problems and more risky adventures. in making money honestly, although it take time but its more fun and you enjoy the money better. there is always a good ending, but dishonest way of making money there is always a terrible ending and dissatisfaction of everything earn.

hi DoctorDidi, Difficult question to answer. In general everyone would expect to get money by honest, since money by honest means it can be said to have become we rights. But there are times when we intend to be honest, but a person or an environment that requires us to be dishonest, and this is a difficult situation to be avoided. On the one hand we need money for living expenses, but on one side of a person or the environment requires us to be dishonest so we can get the money. I personally will always try to get money by honest, although sometimes because of factors, I also dishonest.

Dishonest ways to earn money are more and more today. I'm in the honest group! I can never cheat on someone because I purely think I wouldn't like to be cheated myself by others. But nowadays there are not only even friends who want to earn money from you in dishonest ways. Especially the banks are the biggest category in earning money in dishonest ways. So we have to be very careful and fight back!

The dishonest way is fastest way and to get more money and but the penalty if caught could be enormous. I want to remain poor and work hard to earn some kind of money because it will give me real satisfaction,I do not always ask for money or anything of that nature.

honest way all the way. I'm strictly a person who hates lies, so anything like that isn't right to me too. Besides like lies always get discovered at the end the same goes for this. Dishonest or illegal there's no difference to me. Be honest or just don't do it unless you want to get in trouble with the hand of law.

I belive in earning in honest way. Every one remember it that any earning with dishonest ways never give pleasure, happiness and peace. If we earn money with dishonest way we live with a fear. But in present days where money is everything than moreover person busy in making money. They don't care about way of earning honest or dishonest

I have lived my life so that I can earn money honestly--there have been temptations, but I have always resisted them because I do not feel good about myself when I think about doing something dishonest. I am a teacher, and I teach my students to be honest and tell the truth, and I punish them if they are dishonest. I want them to learn to have the bad feeling in their stomach that I have when I think about doing something dishonest. I know many dishonest people, some in my family. They are not richer than the honest ones. It is hard for them to find a job because nobody trusts them.

I want to earn money in the most honest way. Earning in the least honest way will still do. Even though bad people make lots of money still money can't buy everything. Let the money work for you not work for the money. : )

yeah, we as a man should earn money. it's true that money can be used for many things, but we should not use the dishonest way to earn money. just earn money normally.

Definitely the honest to goodness way :) Earning a living and finding a decent job is hard for me because I am a single mom and the only way that I can support my child while taking care of her at the same time is through home-based jobs. Sometimes it is very frustrating to find one but still I try and try. I wouldn't even dare put food on my daughters' mouth knowing that it came from a dishonest and sinfully wrong means. I would rather tire myself from small paying but honest jobs and I hope most people would do the same too :)

I don't know any other way to make money expect the honest way, that's the way I was taught. There are lots of people that make money dishonestly and I am not in favor of that. I called them either crooks or criminals. They are the bad guy. Whatever I do I try to do my best. I am told that I am good at whatever I put my mind to. So make money but make it honest, you'll feel like you accomplished something.

I prefer earning money by honest ways. Because they make me feel that I'll keep my money and I'll be peace in my heart. If I earn by dishonest ways, I'll be always worry although I have much money. And I don't think that I can keep them for a long time. I don't like that.

I have seen money made honestly and I have seen it made semi honestly as those people would say.. and I have seen dishonest ways.. Myself, I will not earn by being dishonest. That isn't how I was raised. I see many able to earn, able to buy nice things, never have to worry about where they are living or for that matter if they will have a meal tomorrow totally from dishonesty... I worry if I will have a home each day, or food. Still I will not steal, I will not hurt anyone for Money. Faith is what I rely on...

My way of earning is simply emerging honesty. If I cannot earn the honest way then how can I live with me. It gives me great pleasure to know that even if it is small coins that I earned them working and sweating. At some point dis-honesty does catch up and I don't think the loose coins is worth it.

I want to earn money but by honest manner. Because I believe on God and on my work. I know when I will go near God never goes anything with us. I know today most of the people use dishonest manner. So I will suggest those persons who earn money by dishonest manner dont do this. Dont misuse their friends or nearest person. Thanks for discuss on this topic
