Sometimes attributed to JFK, this is all about doing the right thing. Winston Churchill has many a strong quote, but this one is perhaps the foundation for a man to live by.
“A man does what he must — in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers, and pressures — and that is the basis of all human morality.” – Winston Churchill
Doing the right things is not always easy. In fact it’s usually very hard, but a great man will understand he has to do it anyway. It doesn’t matter how hard, dangerous or bad for you. Your moral compass is what makes you a man. Stand by it.
This isn’t just for those who work in the Oval Office, or on the field of battle overseas, but in your everyday life.
