Decency is a Habit

Bad habits follow you throughout your life, no matter how successful or unsuccessful you are.

And they affect your life negatively.

Russell Crowe reportedly treats everyone – fans, directors and fellow actors – very badly. Despite his amazing acting ability, there are many in Hollywood who simply refuse to work with him.

Lawrence Taylor, one of the most celebrated NFL players still alive, was a jerk to everyone. He treated everyone badly and this bad habit put him in the bleachers, so to speak.

Tobey McQuire, famed Spiderman actor, has been known to lash out at paparazzi, refuse to sign autographs and allegedly made ludicrous on-set coffee demands. No wonder he was not invited back to the fourth installment of Spiderman.

That’s the nature of habits. Habits stick.

Eventually your bad habits catch up with you. Once people figure out you are not a decent person, they avoid associating with you and that will undermine your career and affect your ability to make money and build wealth.

As the Bible says, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
