Can tough times build our character?
Depends on how we respond to the tough times doesn’t it?
I love this quote about character that I came across this morning!
One of the themes I have been hearing on my calls this month is the desire to leave a legacy…a mark on the world.
To me this is another sign of character. When we do something because of the difference we want to make in the lives of others, it defines and refines our true character. The quote below hits this idea perfectly.
What are your plans to leave your mark today?
Can our character help us get back when we are faced with frustration and disappointment?
ABSOLUTELY!!! We are all faced with frustration, discouragement, and disappointment…but if our character is strong enough…we will always get back up and try again.
I love the quote below. It is another great reminder of the importance of testing and challenging our character.
I have noticed this principle in my life. It is easy to stay true to your goals and focus in life when everything is calm. How do we respond when things get tough, we have challenges, or life throws us a curve ball?
How can this quote assist you today?
This 3 minute video was a great “gut-check” for me this morning, and reminded me that Character really shows up when we are faced with challenges, hard times, and set backs.
We are all going to go through, or are currently going through tough times…and when we find ourselves in that situation we can either let it hold us down, or get back up and keep going. Character helps us get back up and keep going.
What can you do today to show your character and get back up and keep striving and thriving towards your goals?
