Being of Good Character

How to develop into who you really are, be your best, and exemplify true character

Be true to yourself

Be of genuine character,

Be completely honest- In all things, no lies, half truths or selective omissions of information

Constantly think of others- Place the needs of others before your own

Have integrity- Do what you say, and say what you mean

The remaining content is material I didn’t write but discovered in my search to be better, it goes with this line of thinking, has value, and I found it very interesting, especially in this day and age. There’s a site at the bottom where this and more may be found, I think children should be given “character classes” as part of their curriculum. I used this as part of a self evaluation and improvement study I’m doing on my own, enjoy your day and I hope you get the most out of your life, Jason
