MARY KAY ASH once said, "We must not compromise our principles in order to further our careers."
Everything Mary Kay did during her lifetime came out of her simple belief that 'doing unto others as you would have them do unto you' was the right way to live and do business.
She believed that if we truly live by the Golden Rule in our every action and even in our thoughts, then our lives will take on new meaning and so will the lives of those about us.
She also said, "My sincere desire is that each and every Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant will learn to live by the Golden Rule, not only in her Mary Kay business, but in her daily life.
If there is ever a question about how to deal with a situation, simply put yourself in the place of the other person and treat that person exactly as you would want to be treated. In the long run, you will find that you will gain more than you lose, for it is true that all you send into the lives of others comes back into your own."
Mary Kay Ash was a role model par excellence. Through her example, she has inspired many women to become a role model for individuals who still struggle to find their own creative path of beauty and purpose.
Living the Golden Rule -- it's one thing that never goes out of fashion!
