Connection Might Take You There But Character Will Keep You There
Good day beautiful people. How you all are doing awesome today. Happy New week to everyone. So this morning I remembered one of the teachings of my former boss who always taught us about character. There was this beautiful lady who was accepted as an intern through someone who knew someone who knew my boss. After many connections here and there, she was accepted and then started working with us.
Days and weeks passed and she was still on her best behavior and then the second month after then, she started misbehaving in a way and started disrespecting people in the office. My boss was informed about this but decided not to act yet but to stay put and watch her closely.
Well, character as they say is a flame and will always come out no matter how we try to cover it up. It happened that this lady went out clubbing after work on a Thursday evening and got badly drunk and drained. She was in this dizzy state even till the next morning and went to work that way. At the entrance where we do put down our names for attendance, my boss was already waiting there and she came in looking wasted.
She wanted to put down her name but someone else, a man who happened to be the admin officer was writing his name, this man was just taking his time with the attendance book and this drunk lady got sparked up and shouted loudly at the admin to write his name fast or get the hell out. It was obvious she didn't even see the boss seated. The boss then called her name and she was in great shock seeing that the boss already saw her and who she really is. To cut the story shocked, she was sacked for her bad character which she has been keeping for long and that blocked her from getting into other companies for a while due to a bed recommendation.
Well this is what brought about my topic, you can get to whatever height in life but bad character will always find a way to disgrace you and bring you down. Watch yourself today and build a solid character worthy of emulation. The time is now.
