The most successful men and women in our society, and the men and women that you like and trust the most are invariably people with high, positive values and virtues. Character is a human trait. No one is born with character. Character is, therefore, both taught and learned over the course of your lifetime. The good news is that you can take complete charge of the development of your own character by doing certain things, the same way, every day. The starting point of character is for you to understand what it is and how important it is. Then, your job is to identify the central elements of character and resolve to develop them yourself.
