    Fabulous post. It may be harder than ever to maintain a positive, optimistic attitude at work, amidst tough economic times and mass layoffs. But for that reason, it is also more important than ever to project a positive attitude and be an employee who people want to keep on board.

    My point:
    Being dishonest and untrustworthy will also reflect on you poorly. You might think you are getting away with your dishonesty but, eventually, it will all catch up with you. You may be sacrificing your good reputation, which is important in the business world. For instance, if you were to borrow money with a verbal agreement to repay it within a certain amount of time, it would be wise to do so. Otherwise, your reputation could become tarnished and you will not be trusted by your colleagues
