Your child is facing a world that is getting more chaotic and competitive every day. To some extent you must be worried about how they will handle it and what is the best way to prepare them. We believe the best way to prepare them is to help them become the best person they can be.
There are many goals that a person might pursue in life. Some goals are personal and selfish, others are meaningless. The most valuable goals are noble and honorable. They support a person for a lifetime and put them in a position to do good in the world. Developing one’s character is one of those goals. It is a worthy pursuit. But don’t take my word for it, read what some of the world’s greatest minds have to say.
“Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. For your character is what you are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
– Dale Carnegie
“When life changes to be harder. Change yourself to be stronger. What hurts you today makes you stronger tomorrow.”
– Edwin Mamerto
“Always remember this. Grapes must be crushed to make wine. Diamonds form under pressure. Olives are pressed to release oil. Seeds grow in darkness. Whenever you feel crushed, under pressure, pressed, or in darkness, you’re in a powerful place of transformation. Trust the process.”
“Life is hard for everyone. It’s either hard because you decided not to pay the price to become valuable and you suffered the consequences. Or it’s hard because you paid the price to become valuable but then your options become unlimited.”
– Bill Crawford, Air Force Fighter Pilot
“Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, for no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is the one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.”
– Sitting Bull, Hunkpapa Lakota Indian Chief
“Fortune favors the bold. Audacity pays off. Early audacity can pay off the most.”
– Warren Buffett
“Character is the real foundation of all worthwhile success.”
– John Hays Hammond
“Our ability to handle life’s challenges is a measure of our strength of character.”
– Les Brown
“Men of genius are admired, men of wealth are envied, men of power are feared, but only men of character are trusted.”
– Alfred Adler
