The 5 essential steps to develop character
Developing character is something you have to do intentionally. It doesn’t happen by chance. It takes years to develop the right mentality and learn the steps to go up to the ladder and improve and develop the character …
Basically there are five main steps.
Let’s find out.
1 – I will focus on being better inside rather than outside
– Character counts –
What can get us into trouble is worrying more about how we look outside rather than how we really are inside.
Our reputation comes from what others believe about our outsider. Our character, instead, represents whom we are inside.
If you focus on being better internally and externally, you will also improve over time.
Your interior influences the exterior
What we believe is important and we gather what we sow.
What we do or neglect to do in the privacy of our daily lives affects who we are. If you neglect your heart, mind and soul, this changes whom you are outside as well as inside.
Your internal victories precede the external ones
Continuous growth and lasting success are the OKR of the internal and external alignment of our lives.
Getting the right interior must come first, with solid character traits that provide the foundation for growth.
Your internal development is totally under your control
Character is a quality that encompasses many important traits such as integrity, courage, perseverance, trust and wisdom.
Unlike your fingerprints with which you were born and which you cannot change, the character is something you create within yourself and you have to take the responsibility to change it and improve it.
2 – I will follow the golden rule
– People count –
Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, so take the initiative and do it for them too.
3 – I will only teach what I believe
– Passion counts –
The beliefs borrowed have no passion, so no power.
4 – I will value humility above all virtues
– The prospect counts –
While no one intends to ruin their lives, the problem is that few of us plan not to. That is, we do not put in the necessary security measures to ensure a happy ending.
Ways with which you can guarantee a happy ending …
- Keep the big picture in mind.
- Recognize that everyone has weaknesses.
- Be willing to learn
- Be willing to serve others.
- Be thankful.
The best people are those who have a beginner mentality. They think of themselves as apprentices instead of experts and, consequently, have a humble approach, always aimed at learning.
The best thing to develop character and develop humility is to serve others. Put others first, measure our ego and our prospects.
5 – I will strive to do well
– Loyalty issues –
Do the right thing and you feel good? Do the wrong thing and you feel sick?
If you can take control of your behavior, your emotions will fall into place.
If we want to grow and reach our potential, we need to pay more attention to our character than to our success.
You should recognize that personal growth means much more than increasing your ability to do …
- It means increasing your skills as a human being;
- It means maintaining your integrity and your values, even when it hurts;
- It means being who you need to be and just where you want to be;
- It means maturing your soul.
Your personal growth goes hand in hand with the way and commitment with which you will try to develop character.
Developing your character is the decisive push to grow personally.
