Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
John Wooden – Successful Basketball Player & Coach
Many of us wish to have a great reputation. However, it is the enduring qualities closest to us that are the most accurate and can define our character traits. Character begins with a person’s thoughts. Thoughts lead to behaviors that lead to habits that lead to rooted character traits. Begin by taking a self-inventory. If you find it difficult to take an inventory of your qualities or character traits, turn to someone close to your such as a friend or spouse. Should you find yourself with undesirable habits that are leading you in the wrong direction, take action quickly to eliminate that habit or replace it with a healthy one. Your mindful habits can redirect you in a positive path. You are worth it!
