A good reputation is more valuable than money

It seems that the two concepts: reputation and money have become more closely nowadays. Indeed, a good reputation is more valuable and more important than the money because a good reputation can bring you a lot of money, but if you have a bad reputation, money will never influence your reputation. My father often says that you must work for your “name”, to make it famous, well-known in a positive way, so then your name can work for you and bring you profits. If you have a good reputation people want to work with you, they believe in you and your projects and they are confident that nothing wrong can happen. But if you have a bad reputation nobody will risk investing money, time and their own reputation.

  Reputation is probably one of the most important things a person can have in life. Reputation may determine all your life and how successful you may become. Our reputation represents the way others look at us. Your reputation tells who you are, what you stand for and what you believe in. A good reputation is an enviable honor. It cannot be bought, sold, or traded. A good reputation grows. Building a good reputation requires effort, patience, and time that is why it is so valuable.

Reputation is  only  a  candle,  of  wavering  and  uncertain  flame  and  easily  blown  out. Reputation  is the  result  of  what  we  do,  what  we  say  and  what  others  say  about  us.

We have to  remember  that  it  takes  20  years  to  build  a  reputation  and  five  minutes to  ruin  it. Money  is  a  means  of  payment,  that  helps  us  to  live  well  and  enjoy  our  life, but we can’t buy our reputation by it. A good reputation is built on character, which is its foundation. If we need to purchase something then money is paramount. If we need a person to trust us then reputation is paramount. To me ones’ reputation is everything, because “Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.”(Euripides).
     In conclusion I would like to say that even if you have a lot of money you will never buy such a thing like reputation. Reputation plays an important role in our life that is why we should do our best to have a good reputation because it is more valuable than money
