Will loyalty take you anywhere? I mean REALLY now…
  I am a person who believes that loyalty cannot take you anywhere, not even to your dreams. Why? Because sometimes in order to achieve your dreams you must leave behind people or even your job. Absolutely loyalty is impossible for me because I know human nature. However, it does not mean that my reality is the reality of others. I know people who have worked in the same company all their life. They married their high school sweethearts and they are still together. More important than the loyalty with our relationships is basically our loyalty to our jobs. Will loyalty take you anywhere? I was asking myself this question. Although, I knew the answer. I am curious about what others think.

 There is an interesting quote by Tommy.

You give loyalty, you'll get it back. You give love, you'll get it back.

Do you agree with Tommy?

That's the key word dear, stay loyal to your dreams, not to people, not to companies. I have seen the best people being tossed up like trash...that is why I made this discussion...STAY loyal to you.

@Mantaty Thanks dear. You guys know how much I love to write. Although I know I make a few errors here and there. I always write from my heart and it is a passion project that will take a few months to be launched. I'll be sharing bits and pieces here on the discussion board.

Loyalty and commitment go hand in hand for me. If I stay loyal to my dreams and I work hard and commit , surely I’ll achieve them? I don’t know lol that’s how I think.

This topic makes me think of a famous speech in Shakespeare's <em>Hamlet</em>:

<em>This above all: to thine own self be true</em>
<em>And it must follow, as the night the day</em>
<em>Thou canst not then be false to any man</em>

(If you're not familiar with <em>thou </em>and <em>thine:</em> these were the familiar singular forms of 'you' in Shakespeare's time, <em>thou </em>being the subject and <em>thine </em>being the possessive; <em>canst </em>is 'can' conjugated with <em>thou</em>)

I largely agree with this sentiment, but while the first line is the one most quoted, the third is also vital to its meaning. It's important to be authentic to oneself, but to do so still with good faith to the rest of the world.
