10 POWERFUL WAYS FOR A BETTER CHARACTER
10 POWERFUL WAYS FOR A BETTER CHARACTER: Character simply means one of the attributes or features that make up and distinguish an individual. Here are some of the character we capture for you to enjoy…
Honesty is a better trait that is more than saying the truth. It’s living the truth.
It is being transparent and trustworthy in all of your dealings, relationships, and concept. Being honest needs self-honesty and authenticity.
Define your character’s fears and insecurities.
Your behaviors underlying anxiety are just as important as their ambition and motivations. Think about what your behavior is trying to avoid, and why. How do their anxiety affect their choices and reactions to the condition in which they find themselves?
- For example, perhaps your character is afraid of rejection. He might avoid telling his love interest how he actually feels because of this anxiety.
SEEK continual education.
No one is expert. You and I has room for improvement. And improvement can only come through learning, whether formal or informal.
Indeed, what you study from your job may be more chesty than the money you earn. As business master Harold Geneen noted, “In the business world, everybody is paid in two coins: cash and experience. Get andTake the experience first; the cash will come later.
A dependable behavior makes a good master, giving others someone reliable they can trust. A better character is someone who is always there to assist the important people in their life, and doesn’t break their promises. They show up for their friends and family, and are always there when they’re needed most.
This exceptional quality accepts personal, relational, career, community, and societal obligations even when they are difficult or uncomfortable.
This personal trait follows through on commitments and proactively create or accept accountability for your behavior and choices.
Integrity does not happen by accident. We are all products of our thoughts and habits. Be intentional about filling your mind with good thoughts. Create a habit of this internalizes principles and breeds high character.
Surround yourself with people of high character.
Notify some people in your life that you respect, people who you think exhibit desirable behavior traits. Conclude what you want to be like, what makes the best version of yourself, and find people like that. Then, focus your attention to what makes them successful, and try to learn from that.
- Hang out with people who are older than you. Increasingly, we spend less and less time as a culture learning from our elders. As a young person, make it a goal to befriend someone much older than yourself and learn from their perspective. Spend time with older relatives, talking and learning.
- Hang out with people very different than you. If you tend toward a quiet and reserved personality, you might think of someone with an uncensored and loud way of talking has good character, and can learn to loosen up a little bit and speak your mind.
- Hang out with people you admire. The best way to build character is to hang around people you admire, who you want to be like, and who you can learn from. Don’t surround yourself with sycophants or convenient friends. Befriend powerful people you want to model yourself after.
Doing good things for others without an expectation of anything in return is a better trait that shows an likeable brand of selflessness, setting an example and becoming a role model for others. Kindness does not have to mean your character is weak, either (Mary Poppins is an example of a character who was kind and caring, but stern and forthright in her execution).
Integrity is a personal trait that has strong moral principles and core values and then conducting your life with those as your guide.
When you have integrity, you main your adherence to it whether or not other people are watching.
Surround yourself with people who have high expectations. Be responsible for yourself first. Lose the pride. Open yourself up to accountability.Let others push you to high character.
People of character know there is no right way to do the wrong thing. And conversely, people of character know there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
DOING the right thing.
I speak a great deal to builders and contractors, and they know a great deal about building on a strong foundation. As William Bady, Jr., a builder and developer tells his people, “Living a life is like constructing a building: If you start wrong, you’ll end wrong.” You’ve got to do the right thing.
