True Character

Someone's true character is on full display when times are tough.

Someone's true character is on full display when times are tough. It's easy to appear as if you have great character when things are going well, but when the proverbial crap hits the fan is when you separate the character based individuals from those who run for cover. It takes courage and steeled resolve to stand by your beliefs when the pressure is on. Hellen Keller once said, "Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Remember, Keller lost her hearing and sight at the ripe age of 19 months. Remarkable...

I have witnessed many a situation where when the going gets tough, certain individuals fold like a deck of cards. Trust me, it is noticed and registered. These same individuals seem to float from company to company, never really living up to their promise, or delivering anything of measurable consequence. For whatever reason, they have a shorter view of success, believing there are shortcuts while looking for that ever-elusive purple unicorn. When we look at the most successful people in the world, they are those who have the longest view of their lives...

For example, when we look at the homeless person versus a doctor. And I am not talking about the unfortunate circumstances where someone is homeless. I am talking about the capable who chose to be victims. These victims have a view that tends to be a moment-to-moment experience. Where the doctor sees a future, takes years to educate themselves, hones their craft, and then over time establishes a reputable practice. They are not just looking for the next 40 oz. or their next fix. Their character drives them toward greater heights.
My advice is to not look for shortcuts -- instead be willing to work harder than anyone else and never give up! Or as Abraham Lincoln now famously said, "I will prepare myself and someday my chance will come." Character is found at the apex where preparation and perseverance meet life's obstacles.
