Character cannot be faked. No matter what you say, or do or who you pose to be, eventually your true self will absolutely show up.
If your intentions are to positively impact others then you have to be living the positive life. If you wish to develop those around you, then you have to develop yourself first. If you expect the best from others, then you have to offer the best to them.
To do better you have to first better yourself. Your inner motivations influence your expectations and in-turn your results. If your motives aren’t pure then you’ll definitely not reap the best results. Your motives and behaviors reflect your intentions and they can only be good if your character is good. We can not claim to have the best intentions in the work we do or in how we relate with others if this cannot be reflected by our character.
Our character (who we are) also determines if we become great but most importantly ‘if we remain great.’
Any vigilant person will act upon an opportunity when it comes up which opportunity might open doors to greatness or success but character is the only thing that will enable you to remain successful or become even more successful in the event that whatever the opportunity had brought forward for you.
It all starts with you so if you want to experience true success – better yourself, build yourself, have principles to direct your life(and help you achieve your goals) which if they were applied by other people would contribute to the community’s holistic growth and development.
‘Eventually if there isn’t deep integrity and fundamental character strength, the challenges of life will cause true motives to surface and human relationship failure will replace short term success.’ -Stephen Covey
