Developing a strong character, generally we don’t think too much about our character, we just carry on our merry way.
This week spend a bit of time reflecting…
• Character traits do you currently possess that you are very proud of. Make of list of these traits and ask people you trust to help you add onto your list.
• Who do you want to be? Begin by identifying one quality you would like to strengthen in yourself, a quality you possess but perhaps it’s in short supply! Uncover and discover what people with that characteristic do, how they behave and present themselves in the world. Emulate this behaviour; look for opportunities to behave that way yourself! You know what they say, fake it ‘til you make it.
•Ditch the reruns in your head saying, “I can’t, I could never, I have never, no one in my family has any…”
• Celebrate each small step, and when you have a firm handle on this character trait, go back to step one!
Developing a strong character – it’s just one more way you can live Your Life, Unlimited!
This week on Your Life, Unlimited radio retired Colonel Jill Morgenthaler’s site and John Maxwell trained Art Alexander’s site and I dove into skills to help you ‘lift the lid’ on your leadership skills both at home and beyond.
Art and Jill, both full of inspiring stories, shared their insights including:
Small talk leads to BIG talk
Times may by tough, but YOU are tougher
Have the courage to take command
