Don't Lie, Cheat or Steal!


Back in the early 2000s, there was a wrestler named Eddie Guerrero who had a "Lie, Cheat, Steal" wresting gimmick. It's a philosophy that his character was applying quite often and he was able to achieve quite a bit with it. Obviously, that was a fictitious character in a fictitious world. If we were to apply this philosophy in real life we would not be as successful as Eddie Guerrero was portrayed as being - at least not in the long term.

Lying, cheating, stealing might give us an edge in the short term but it opens the door to potential headaches in the future because the people that were lied to, that were cheated or that got things stolen from will want restitution and the person that did these deeds will loose trust in the process. Once trust is lost it's almost impossible to get it back.

When Eddie Guerrero did these things, he suffered none of the consequences but real life doesn't work like that. Eventually these things are brought to light and justice is served.

Don't lie, don't cheat, don't steal.
