Good behavior rarely gives reward/praise/recognition.
I could shoot a few people and instantly become a celebrity, but where's my reward for choosing not to kill a bunch of random people? huh? Where's my praise for not being a rapist or recognition for not being a drug dealer? I could rob someone, and the reward would be the money I get from the act, where as abstaining from those kind of acts gets me no reward. Even if a rapist gets convinced for the crime, he still got to fuck the person he wanted to after all is said and done.
Same principle applies to just about any crime, aside from those involving people too stupid to pull them off successfully but then guess what happens? they get sent to a place where they can learn from others how to be better criminals and are sent back into the world armed with better knowledge of how not to get caught.

Absence of evil is not presence of good.

It's "if you're not with me, you are against me", not "if you're not against me, I like you".

If not being bad isn't enough to make you good, then why not just be bad?

If that's how you see it, give evil a spin. Let your desires be king. There's no reason to obey if you can't be forced to obey.

Children have to learn what's wrong before they can do what's right, by learning earlier they can apply a wider logic earlier.
Of course you have to prevent them from seriously injuring or killing themselves.
The reason there's so many spoiled kids and into adults is often because of coddling and enabling.

I think the greatest message here is self-discipline, so it doesn't matter where you are ethically.
I think that the good behaviour arrow should also point towards negative consequence as well, just like choice can result in misbehaviour.
I think you're kind of writing your own rules into it. "e.g." just means they're tangible examples of positive consequences.
So if your goal is murder, rape, theft or whatever. So long as you don't get caught, or perhaps you do and get the spin you want; the graphic isn't necessarily wrong.
I disagree with the graphic on a few points as successful people don't necessarily have manners. Assertive people rarely give people the space they want, but just enough so they get what they want from them.

It just goes to show again that morality is not linked to reward, whether it should be is a much more complicated question than this thread can discuss.
