I don’t think there’s anything wrong from being an opportunist.
We are all opportunist even in the smallest way. I am, you are, everybody is.
However, I draw an absolute line at cheating, lying and pure deception. One might see it as an opportunity or a gaping advantage that is up for grab.
To each, his/her own.
I came across this scenario earlier this week.
Though the offer was indeed tempting, my conscience got the better of me. I politely declined the invitation of deception. I want to achieve something because I deserve it and not because I had a little ‘advantage’ fanning my way through.
It wasn’t easy – the devil has its way of luring one to such state. Sometimes the devil wins, other times, it might not.
Either way, I doubt that the devil will stop tempting.
Know yourself; know what you want and how you want to look (back) at your life.
You’ll do okay.
