How can you be the best in life some people tend to ask themselves from time to time but haven’t really gotten to the answer. Well, it’s important to note that there are different perspectives to going about this discussion, but I have chosen a very rare angle which might be questionable by some people.
There’s a saying that “Hard work and Smart work gets you to the top but Character keeps you there”. This is true from all the perspectives, and this brings us to today’s discussion, Character!
Character can be simply put as who we are on the inside. It is a reflection of your inner self. It’s a far mark from reputation. Usually people tend to mix the two of them up. Reputation on one hand comes from what people believe about you from the outside, and to a mild extent influences character.
The multilevel marketing expert, Doug Firebaugh says “Winning in life is more than just money….it’s about winning on the inside and knowing that you have played the game of life with all you had”. Being the best person we want to see is ultimately within our control and our sole decision to make. Regret is not an option but rather a regression. Progressing is working on yourself internally and then the outward evidence would show, though it might tarry, wait for it, it’s a process.
To develop traits such as Integrity, Perseverance, Confidence and Wisdom, we need to make conscious efforts and be determined to become who we want with the best character and personality.
