Would The Child You Were Be Proud Of The Adult You Are
Would the child you were be proud of the adult you are?.Walk Tall:.Character is the foundation of all worthwhile success. A good question to ask yourself is: "What kind of advice do I give others that I need to follow myself?" Living a double life will get you nowhere twice as fast.
Live so that your friends can defend you, but never have to do so. "Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny," said Tryon Edwards. Proverbs asserts, "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.".Would your reputation recognize your character if they met in the dark? Desire what Psalms declared, "Create in me a pure heart, Oh Lord, and renew in me a right spirit." To change your character, you must begin at the control center - the heart.
Consider what Woodrow Wilson said: "If you think about what you ought to do for people, your character will take care of itself.".You're called to grow like a tree, not like a mushroom. It's hard to climb high when your character is low.
