“Character is what you know you are, not what others think you have.” ~Unknown
Remember when you first learned to drive a car, ride a Bike or use a computer? Everything is complicated until it becomes easy. Doing any of those things took concentration, the willingness to learn and determination. Building character works the same way, it’s difficult until it becomes easy. The goal in character building is to exchange enough bad habits for good habits; but to do this you must know what’s good, what’s not and when to do good.
We are often let down by the most trusted persons and loved by the most unexpected ones. Some make us cry for things that we haven’t done, while some other ignore all our faults just to see our smile. Some leave us when we need them the most, while some stick to us even when we ask them to leave. This world is a mixture of such peoples. We just need to know which hand to shake and which hand to hold!
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything & and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best. Forget the mistakes of the past & press on the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side as long as you are true to the best that is in you.
