The regular readers of our posts know that we advocate focusing on Character Building rather than on Personality Branding. While the Personality Brand is the mark which others put on us, the Character Built is the mark which we carry within us – reflecting the qualities that define us.
If humans were a plant, our personality would be the leaves while our character were the roots. Solid roots grow healthy leaves – not vice-versa. Solid roots need solid soil, nutrition and nurturing. Those are reflected by the values we stand for and the principles we live by. The healthier our values and principles, the healthier our roots will be. Staying in the same picture, if we surround ourselves with people of mediocre values or ineffective principles, it will affect our growth.
Know the values you stand for, define the principles you live by – and surround yourself with caring people who accept you for who you are.
As Gandhi said, “your values become your destiny”. In other words, the clearer and more effective your values are, the greater your destiny will be.
What thoughts come to your mind and how can you work on your Character Buidling right now?
Looking forward to your comments on LinkedIn.
“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. He is considered successful in our day who gets more out of life than he puts in. But a man of value will give more than he receives.”- Albert Einstein
