Fairness enlightens your path
By Jean Ricot Dormeus
The golden rule ensures that we impart on others the same treatment we aspire to. Because we hold no guarantee about our status tomorrow, we should make the best of today by upholding our neighbor rights. The precept of fairness cuts across great spiritual teachings because it leads to a stable life and creates the right conditions for sustainable success. The homing pigeon of fairness always comes back to us with desirable returns.
We all have personal preferences. Even among our family members, we may have a soft spot for a parent, a child or a sibling. However an even handed attitude goes a long way in generating trust and respect. In fairness, we should strive to measure every fact or value every performance with the yardstick of the truth, without fear or favor. We should look at merit, not at persons, and everyone would receive what they are entitled to.
The practice of fairness may mean that you have to take some short-term pain for long-term gains. As you walk in a referee shoes, you may witness a team you like going down in defeat without doing anything to alter the final result. Your attitude will help them prepare better for future matches. Favoritism would be fatal in the long run.
Fairness supports unity and harmony in the family and the nation. It promotes human dignity, upholds transparency and naturally improves the social order. It creates conditions for genius to emerge and for individual efforts to flourish.
Isn’t it uplifting to receive the degree you toiled for, the job your qualifications land you and the contract your company deserves. Fairness props personal and national development. Fairness creates opportunities and enlightens your path.
