Character or lack of character will weave its way into every aspect of your life creating or stealing from your happiness.  Everything you do and every way you do it gives or takes from your well of character and your happiness. How you conduct yourself and treat others is a direct reflection of your view of yourself.

Be trustworthy.  It enables you to trust yourself and others. The curse of the dishonest person is that he doesn’t believe others because he can’t believe himself. You teach others how to treat you. Teach them respect by giving respect.

Be just with others even though you may not see the need.  Justness will be returned to you. Live without hiding and do without reservation.  Have the courage to follow your convictions. Embrace the power of humility, it teaches perspective.

Be kind, compassionate and grateful for what you have.  It could be gone tomorrow.
