However, after carefully thinking over my actions, I finally decided against it.
NEVER break the rules.
It may seem like a totally cliched and over-worn out saying, but it holds its truth up steadily.
3 Reasons Why You Should Never Break The Rules1. Hands that are tied up doing bad opportunity won't be able to catch the good opportunity.
If you decide to do something that would be considered "breaking the rules," your hands will be tied up with that "bad work." And when your hands are tied up doing "bad opportunity," you won't have any hands left over to capture the "good opportunity."
You need to let go of the bad opportunity, so that you can catch the good opportunity.
2. You won't be able to boast about your acts.
If you achieved some big goal, like earn $1,000, you won't be able to tell other people about it because you earned it by selling illegal goods. On the other hand, if you do good works that don't break the rules, and you achieved a major milestone with that, you can boast about it to your friends without any worries of getting caught, because you did it honestly.
3. Bad works breeds more bad work.
Similar to the saying, "Success breeds success," the #3 reason is saying, the more you do bad works, the more bad works will come to you. Also similar to the law of attraction.
