"If you make friends with people who are without character, your own character will tarnish as well." ~ Anon

We often say we want a renewal of character in our day and we do not really "know" what we ask for. 

To have a renewal of character is to have a renewal of a credal order that requires discipline... focus... obligates and compels. 

This price is too high for many of us to pay. 

We want character and yet do it without any conviction... we want strong morality and yet without the "emotional" burden of guilt or shame; we want virtue and yet without particular moral justifications that invariably offend... we want the "positive" without having to name or confront the negative... we want decency without the authority to insist upon it... we want moral community without any limitations to personal freedom... and not take any "responsibility" for that freedom upon ourselves.

In short... we want what we cannot possibly have on the terms that we want it.

As you pursue your grand dreams... never forget the person you really want to be. 

More vital than "success" at work or in personal pursuits is the "character" that you will develop in the process. 

On a very deep level you will seek to be the kind of person that enjoys wholesome "self respect."

There is nothing more personal than your "values." 

What you will and will not do to get ahead... the lines you will and will not cross to "win"... whom you will and will not step on for "personal gain"... are at the "very core" of your "code of honour." 

And your "code of honour" determines your "character." 

And your "character" is "who you are." 

And as others "perceive you!"

Character is not inherited. 

One builds it daily by the way one "thinks" and "acts."

Thought by thought... action by action. 

If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the "mind"... they will become self forged chains.

I respect the people who know distinctly what they want. 

They possess a sense of "purpose"... a "direction" of "knowing" where they want to go. 

They are the "cause" of their own "effect." 

They are not passengers in their own life. 

The greater part of all the problems in this world arises from the "fact" that people do not sufficiently "understand" their own aims or take "responsibility" for themselves. 

They give over their "power" to someone else to take care of their lives for them. 

They have undertaken in their dreams to build a tower... and spend no more labor on the foundation in the "real world" than would be necessary to erect a shabby hut. 

Even a hut built with "care... purpose" and "consideration" can be a palace.

And a Man or Woman of Character... will live there!

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!

Yours Sincerely
