Cultivating Character: What Do You Stand For?
There is a global need for character, values and standards. What is your character? Who are you?

I would like to share with you a few of the sections in an upcoming book called Cultivating Character. At no other time in my lifetime have I seen such a global need for reinforcing better values, standards and morals. Is it possible that our financial and world leaders are forgetting what they are charged with protecting and safeguarding?
Thank you for sharing your time with me. Please feel free to pass this article or ezine on to others who would enjoy it.
 

Character is the set of qualities that make somebody distinctive.

It is the outward manifestation of what you believe inside your mind and spirit. It is your nature, personality and moral fiber. Your character is the attitude and set of mind which indicates to others who you are and what you stand for.

Most people never take the time to reflect on who they are, where they have been and where they are going. You are very fortunate that you have made a choice to take a good look at yourself.

 

The unexamined life is not worth living.

- Socrates

 

Internal work is the hardest work you will ever do.

How and why do we believe what we believe? How do we arrive at our underlying set of beliefs and attitudes (which includes assumptions, prejudices and convictions)?

It is important that we examine the process to determine if we what we have accepted to be true is actually true for us now or if it ever was. Our beliefs and character influence our thinking and motivate our action in daily life.

 

What we think about we bring about

Whatever you plant in your subconscious mind and nourish every day with conviction and emotion will one day become a reality. What we think about we bring about, so if all you can think about is what happened yesterday or in your childhood, then how can you focus on a shiny future?

Repeat something often enough and it will start to become you. Stop thinking and saying you are a loser, a victim, filled with sickness or disease. If you keep saying and thinking of yourself as a clumsy oaf, you will find yourself tripping, bumping into furniture and falling down.

 

A change in what you tell yourself will result in a change in your behavior.

What you impress upon your mind, you'll inevitably become. Self suggestion will make you master of yourself.

I have used a program of meditation that has been very helpful in reminding my subconscious of who I am and what my destiny in life is about. You may want to order it, or at least get the free demo CD to try it out.
