Don’t kid yourself, character counts!
Character is more than integrity and morals, character is about our person hood, who we are, are our actions the same publicly as they are when no one is around (and will never know).
Abraham Lincoln said “Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing”.
At some level we all know “success” involves more than talent or ability. It has to do with person hood as well.
Most people will say, (unless they have been asleep for the past 15 years) that character counts. I am here to say does affect performance, look at Enron, Anderson and the fall of individual superstars whose character somehow got in the way.
If people have good character, their ethics and integrity will be such that you can trust them, that they will not cheat you, steal from you or lie to you. They can be trusted. You don’t have to watch you back constantly and you can sleep at night.
It is important to start your day with positive, inspirational and motivational thoughts and ideas for you to excel, that has become easier because you can get an App to help you with that.
