Can there ever be a wrong time to do the right thing? Of course not. There is only a right time to do the right thing and that right time is always right now. Each of us possess a clear sense of right and wrong. Even as small children, we quickly learned what we should and shouldn't do.
So why should you or I waste another moment doing the wrong things when there are so many right things that need to be done right now? Isn't it about time that each of us redirected our energy and effort on doing as much good for as many people as we possibly can?
There are so many good things we can do with our God given gifts and talents. There are so many good people we can touch, treating each one of them with respect, dignity and kindness. And best of all, there is never a wrong time to get started.
Contrary to poplar belief, doing the right thing is never out of touch or out of fashion. The world would be a much better place for you, your loved ones and everyone else if each of us made a habit of doing the right thing all of the time. While you may not be able to control the actions of others, you can surely do your part in making our world a better place by stepping up and doing the right thing yourself.
Youre a born winner and as a winner, you must readily accept and embrace the immense responsibility that comes with the territory. Winners are always ready, willing and able to do the right thing whenever and wherever it needs to be done. You need to be prepared to do your part too.
And right now is as good a time as any to get started.
