Honor is something deep down, everyone is striving to obtain. It can be defined in many ways, and forms, nevertheless they all come to the same conclusion. Honor is thinking of others first; it is giving your life for others, and not worrying about yourself. It is doing something just for the action itself, not the reward. American honor is being selfless, it is very much the same in different cultures and countries, although some people argue that it has stayed the same, it has drastically changed over the years.
We link the word honor to power because of all those great accomplishments that person has completed in their lifetime. Such as an example is Abraham Lincoln. He abolished slavery, while he was the president. America views him as a very honorable man because until his assassination, he fought for what he believed and what he knew was right for all of America. We have even slapped a nickname to this great American, Honest Abe. A more modern day example of an honorable person is Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was the one basketball player who shaped the game of basketball for the rest of our lives. He had 5 MVP awards. won 6 championships with the Bulls, two three-peats, and was selected to the all-star team 14 times! He brought honor upon himself because of all his great achievements and he is still admired to this day. Honor in our culture is people thinking very highly of you and having power, but our culture still has self perceived
“Integrity is choosing your thoughts and actions based on values rather than personal gain” (Integrity). This quote describes that people who have integrity are honest and not selfish. They know what the consequences are but still commit to their values. Those who choose to have integrity make them inherently good people, in The Crucible, because their actions reveal their true character. In The Crucible, integrity circulates throughout the book, whereas some submit to and others who do not. Those who do not choose to have integrity have low moral standards. Those who do have integrity have self-respect for themselves and honor their beliefs. In The Crucible, integrity challenges characters to make the right decision, which ultimately results in
But actually, it is a very brilliant and basic principle to uphold. If a person were to go around being formidable and uncivil, most likely they would not receive any kind of positive attention from anyone but people just as discourteous as they are. Another phrase that seems redundant is “You must learn to love yourself before you can love others.” That is another good principle that is often taken for granted ad nauseum. In Native American culture, you must love yourself and everything else in creation to truly achieve wicozani which means wealth by living a life in mental and physical harmony with the world.
Are you an honorable person? would you tell if someone was doing something wrong? these two questions are important and Unwritten rules called honor codes. Honor codes have been in schools and workplaces for many years.The guidelines are simple for most iron codes. They are simply if people see or acting a wrong or inappropriate way reported to a higher authority. this includes cheating stealing or harassment in any form. IR codes can only work if the people in the society are all following it but if not the code cannot work or cause negative impact in the problem it intended to help. The broken Honor Code can lead to people feel like they have to cheat to stay ahead with the others that are cheating. although honor codes of the possibility to help a positive impact on society they are bad because without full cooperation of them members of the society the honor code will feel or have a negative impact on that Society.
Meriam Webster defines profession as “a type of job that requires special education, training, or skill.” With that being said, to be a professional means that you have to be educated, well trained, and exhibit competent skills in the workplace. The Army profession however, is not just a job, but rather a noble calling. Unlike a job in which an individual is normally enticed with benefits and other employee perks to join an organization, an Army professional must have a strong inclination to serve his or her country, especially when its main duty is to provide security and defense to the society. An Army professional therefore, is an individual that has meet the Army’s standard of competence, character, and commitment.
All throughout my life I’ve been taught by my mentors that leadership is grown, cultivated, and earned. What organization embodies that the most other than the Marine Corps. In life you are always going to have leaders whether or not you are one or striving to be one. Leadership should be respected even if you dislike the one charge. All leaders no matter how great or revered make mistakes. As someone who strives to be a leader I strive to learn from not only my mistakes but also the mistakes of my leaders. I recently made a mistake I disrespected a leader in front of other leaders. Thus proving that no matter how much I thought of myself as a leader I am not yet a leader.The Marine Corps values rank structure
On my dad’s side of the family, my grandmothers along with grandfathers always told me that I need to respect others. Even if it was just thanking someone for their generosity or taking a plate to one of elders that can’t walk or see. I’m not saying just for the reason that I’m Native American that is the only reason I am respectful, but it’s just how I hold myself. And that is how Native Americans hold themselves.
However, it is easy enough to respect others even if two people do not get along. I think a small responsibility to America that makes a big difference is to respect others in their opinions, beliefs, and ways of life. There are so many different people and without respect, no one would get along and there would always be conflict. It is always better to hear others out and go on living with integrity. Respect is not only given to our neighbors but especially to those who serve and have served. These brave men and women are who keep this country going and carry one of the biggest responsibilities to America, serving in the military. So, it is easy enough for us to respect and honor them in every way possible. My right to America is to be respectful of my peers and elders as well as showing extra respect to those who serve and have served.
The Scout Law states that a boy scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent. These are twelve words that were pounded into my head from the time I started in scouts. Not all these words have had significant meaning to me, none the less I have tried to live my life by them. I could sit here and write an essay about what all these words mean to me. That, however, isn 't what 's been asked, so I’ll talk about three of these words.
Honor is a word that is found from a long time ago, to be honor to someone, or be the honor itself. The honor is achieved by a person through his lifetime, and it’s something all of us humans trying to find, so we could discover the true meaning of our life. People go through struggles and misfortune in their life, to find that trait. From a story to another you are going to realize, how the characters are trying not to lose what they have. It is a motive to let you achieve the impossible, not even death would stop you from gaining your honor. In the play Hamlet, we find that Hamlet meets with his father’s ghost, and about his father murder by the hands of blood related brother, Hamlet takes a decision, to revenge and restore the glory back
“The Honor Code” is an interview with Philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah, produced by Katy Chevingny, in which honor is used to justify violence, while introducing a way for brutality to come to a halt. Anthony Appiah, explains that violence often occurs due to an individual’s quest to acquire respect. However, a person’s ideology is subject to change if new evidence demonstrates that old traditions were dehumanizing, such as when he states, “People can recognize that something is wrong, but still be honor-bound to do it… you have to get people to see that what they are getting from it, the recovery of family honor, that they are not getting that” (Appiah). Through the use of this analysis, Appiah is able to deliver a potential solution to “honor
Worldview is the how you interpret the reality you live in and what you believe to be true. Everyone has a worldview, it can change and vary for each person. But there is a common ground in worldviews, which is that they are influenced by what we read, watch, and associate ourselves with. In addition to science and religion.
There are many reasons why respect is the key to success. Throughout our lives, we will work with many people. Whether we like them or not, we still need to respect them in order to complete the assignment. For example, a teacher pairs me up with people I dislike. Even though I dislike them, I still have to work with them and treat their ideas and opinions with respect. In school, if I treat a teacher with respect, they might favor bumping your grade up from a high B+ to an A-. When I make friends, I have to be respectful as well. If I act rude and condescending, then no one would want to be my friend. As humans, we are heavily social animals and our level of success in our lives depend on how well we can work with others. Having respect is a major aspect of this social interaction, making it very important.
The belief of respect is important that managers, supervisors, employees at the organization also reflect organization’s culture and manner. I realized that respect others is an effective way to improve my own quality and it requires me to respect others’ achievement and custom. Therefore, respect is my basic quality and I have to be patient with each employee although I am a leader in the future career.
