  • The difference between the poor countries and the rich ones isNOT the age of the country.
  • This can be explained :Countries like India & Egypt, are thousands of years old and yet are poor.
  • On the other hand, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, that were unknown few hundreds of years agotoday are developed countries and are rich.
  • The difference between poor and rich countries does not reside in theavailable natural resources.
  • Japan has a limited territory, 80% mountainous, prone to earthquakes,inadequate for agriculture & cattle raising,but it is the second world economy. The country is like an immense floating factory, importing raw material from the whole world and exporting manufactured products.
  • Switzerland Does not plant cocoa but has the best chocolate of the world.In its little territory they raise animals and plant the soil during 4 months per year, butthey produce dairy products of the best quality. It is a small country that transmits an image of security, order & labor,which made it the world’s strong safe.
  • What then is the contributing factor ? Significant intellectual differences ? Surely, Indians are not intellectually inferior.
  • The difference liesin the attitude of the People.
  • On comparing and analyzing the attitudes and behavior of the people, we find that a great majority of the rich and developed countriesfollow the following principles in their lives:
  • 1. Values and Ethics2. Integrity.3. Responsibility.4. Respect for the laws & rules.5. Respecting the rights of other citizens.6. Work loving– honest and hardworking.7. Strive for saving & investment.8. Will of super action.9. Punctuality.
  • In poor countries,it is generally observed that only a small minority followthese basic principles in their daily life.
  • We are not poor becausewe lack natural resources or because we are intellectually inferior.
  • We are poor because we lack the rightattitude.
  • ATTITUDE STRESS CULTUREPositive Eustress Strong Attitude CultureNegative Distress Weak Attitude Culture
  • ATTITUDE An enduring disposition toconsistently respond in a given manner
  • Attitudes arethe result of choices you make;decisions to believe not to believe.
  • An y fact facing usis not as important as our attitude toward it,for that de termines our success or failure Peale

  • You are your Thoughts … Choices … Decisions …
  • We are what we think.All that we are arises with our thoughts.With our thoughts we make the world.Speak or act with an impure mind,And trouble will follow youAs the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.Speak or act with a pure mind,And happiness will follow youAs your shadow, unshakable.Jan 23, 2013 - Buddha 105
  • Why do we need a discussion aboutEthics and Values ?To appreciate the need forWORK ETHICS
  • WORK ETHICS  It is a set of values based on hard work and diligence.  It is a belief in the moral benefit of work and its ability to enhance character.  It includes being reliable, having initiative and maintaining social skills, honesty and accountability.
  • In essence, WORK ETHICS implies :Before You Act --- ASK: Is this fair ? Is this legal ? Is it against the policy ? Could the action cause loss or harm to anyone ? If everyone I knew saw me, would I feel uncomfortable ?
  • Principles of Personal Ethics Concern for the well-being of others Respect for the autonomy of others Trustworthiness & honesty Willing compliance with law Basic justice; being fair Doing good – benevolence Preventing harm
  • 9Evaluating Ethical Actions Actions can be evaluated using a variety of tests TESTS
  • 1. Harm Test Harms BenefitsDo the benefits outweigh the harms, short term and long term?
  • 2. Reversibility TestWould I think this was a good choice if I traded places?
  • 3. Colleague TestWhat would my professional colleagues say?
  • 4. Legality TestWould my choice violate a law or policy of my employer?
  • 5. Publicity Test How would my choice lookon the front page of a Newspaper?
  • 6. Common Practice Test What if everyone behaved this way?
  • 7. Wise Relative Test What would my wise old aunt or uncle do? orWould I want them to know what I am doing?
  • 8. The Hiding TestDo I want others to know what I’m doing?
  • And Finally, 9. the Self-Respect TestHow will I feel about myself after making this choice?
  • But all these tests promotedecisions based on how we “feel” about what we do. However, the best decision is to “Do the right thingbecause it is the right thing to do.”
  • Sow a thought, reap an act. Sow an act, reap a habit.Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap an eternal destiny.
  • During my eighty seven years,I have witnessed a whole succession oftechnological revolutions.But none of them has done awaywith the need for character in the individualor the ability to think.Jan 23, 2013- Bernard M. Baruch 124
  • He who has health* has hope, and he who has hope has everything.*Health ~ Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual
