Harmony. A concert. An orchestra. A thriving business. A flourishing school or camp. A lovely functional family. A happy home. What’s the common thread that calls to and breeds success?
There are times that an opportunity to do something good arises, and although we know what is right, we tell ourselves that our past misdeeds have already defined us. Discover the myth behind hypocrisy.
