What is Ethics?
According toLandauer and Rowlands, Ethics is doing the right, holding yourselves up to the highest standards. It is ongoing process of learning moral values of right and wrong. I believe it is the quest for mankind finding its highest substance of being. We are asking who am I, what do I do now, then we take action. There are two path, one may take the right path or wrong path.
The important point of learning good behavior for human beings is seeking to be ethical on their journey to fulfillment is in our everyday life. Waking up in the morning with the ability to walk into another room, prepare a meal for yourself can make you happy, that may be a small goal, but there are people who wish they were in our shoes etc. We aspire to achieve goals in the pursue of happiness. In our efforts to reach our goals some actions we chose wisely and others we chose incorrectly and our goals fail.
Some people grow up learning the building block, teachings on how to be ethical from their parents, mentors and life coaches, while others learn a different set of rules from the streets of unethical behaviors, these people do not see happiness in their future, however, it is in our DNA to seek happiness, that when you hear of tragedy turning intotriumph.
“A proper foundation of ethics requires a standard of value to which all goals and actions can be compared to. This standard is our own lives, and the happiness which makes them livable
