“Don’t do now, what you might regret later on.”
Ever get the feeling that you need help right now. No better yet, you need help today, yesterday. So you decide to make a decision that is out of desperation. But understand something about desperation, and that is what you might do now could effect you tomorrow. I heard Hip Hop artist Master P make a statement regarding being signed as an artist. He was offered $1 million for a rap career, yet he turned it down. And he needed the money at the time because he only had $500 to his name. Turning the money away was smart for him at the time because now he’s worth close to $400 million. This may have never happened had he had taken the deal from none other than Dr. Dre at the time. A move which would make Dre even bigger now.
Then again, not everyone make desperate decisions that align themselves on the law side. Some people make desperate decisions that land them in a world of trouble. Now you’ve just made an in the moment decision that hopefully you bounce back from, otherwise you could go to jail for a very long time. And that my friends is what is called a shortcut leading to a dead end. Now, is the law being broken the only desperate situation you might find yourself in, in life. No, there are people who make decisions that might leave their moral judgment in question. You might be asked to perform a certain act that you desperately need, but could cost you your job later. For example, working on Wall Street, being asked to destroy some documentation that could lead to lawful repercussions. You destroy it up to keep your job, but find out you may not go to prison, but can never work in finance ever again.
Now, are you ready to lose your entire career over this moment. This happens all the time with doctors and lawyers. And everyday, someone loses their practice or license for aiding and abetting for some type of financial windfall. You see, in the end, are you ready to deal with the drawbacks of making these desperate decisions. Everyone want something in the now, but are not ready to deal with what comes with it. From bad business decisions to breaking the law; are you prepared for the consequences. And hopefully, the drawback is not too serious so you can recover, otherwise you have to take an “L” in whatever form it may happen to occur.
