Character: the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing. Did you understand? Well, if you didn´t, I´ll be discussing what I suppose makes up the components of a human´s character. Each person in this immense world has a different character based on their values or ethics. I believe we all gain several characteristics from the people that surround us. In fact, scientists have proven this to be true.
One of the facts that most caught my attention was the effect that building strengths leads to happiness and well- being. In other words, one thing leads to another. In fact, Frank Outlaw says: “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny”. This quote couldn´t describe my thoughts more in just a few words.
In my opinion, this quote should be in everyone´s sights. In my reasoning, sometimes we don´t notice what our characteristics can persuade us to do, with this phrase in mind many of us can avoid innumerable problems.
Many of our qualities are created during life experiences. For instance, if we gain confidence in ourselves. Whereas, if we lose it, we generate low self-esteem and lose our courage along with other traits. So, what´s the solution? As said before, the answer is to keep practicing. None of us are born with everything, we have to polish ourselves until we shine bright. More importantly, we always need to believe in ourselves.
I can relate to this because throughout my life I have learned that to acquire certain mannerisms. I have to have perseverance! Not only that, but my secret to victory is patience. Providing that, I consider myself a person with a growth mindset. This mind in particular is one that is able to change its way of thinking and is open to new ideas.
As I wrote this paper, I noticed how easy it is to explain everything as to how hard it is to apply it. Structuring myself has never been a walk in the park, but with these techniques I know it will be easier. As a matter of fact, I believe all these techniques are essential for anyone´s daily life. Furthermore, I hope that anyone who reads this article can get facts that will be beneficial to their character.
