Character


People are not born with good character and good character is not defined by one noble act. Building character is a lifelong process that requires strength, purpose, and action. It’s essentially the sum of your habits and what you take with you to eternity. Character is established by conscientious adherence to moral values, not by lofty rhetoric or good intentions. Character is revealed by your response to the unexpected and what you stand for when no one else is watching. 
Your character contributes to how you live your life. It either makes you happy or miserable based on your reaction to life’s experiences. In order to maintain consistency in character, you must remain aligned with your moral values; in spite of overwhelming pressures and temptations. It’s not uncommon to take action based on short term gain, but that often results in long term consequences. By remaining dedicated to ethical principles and having a genuine concern for others, you will attract loyal followers and create lasting success.
