Become a person who is competitive but who also has good character

There’s no better mix than being competitive and having great character.

If you are highly competitive, you will maximise your talents and take opportunities to become all you can be. You’ll be in high demand in your field of work.

But, character is needed to balance strong ambition. It’s your moral compass and without it you could end up doing just about anything to get what you want.

Here are three qualities to become a person of character.

Number 1. Make the decision to grow your character and to stand by that decision.

Number 2. Feed yourself mentally, emotionally and physically with good stuff!

Number 3. Allow God’s guidance and life’s experiences to shape you into the person you want to become.

Character is the very essence of a person – everything else is merely window-dressing designed to keep others from seeing the real you.
