Character Makes a Man Best Asset
The character is the best asset of human life. It is not what we receive from our family or friends, but our character is our monopoly. It is almost indescribable. The real identity of a man lies in his character, and not in his wealth, power, or appearance. The good character also shows leadership and value. It’s our view, our attitude to define and live life. But it is such a thing which does not come down at man’s feet from heavens; he has to achieve it.
Character refers to the way in which a person thinks or feels demonstrated by his behavior. It is what we can call is the reflection of our mind and soul that adds up together and holds you firm in any adverse situation. It is bright with the heavenly light of truth and humanity, soft with the beauty of forgiveness, strong with the strength of imperturbability and patience. It is built up over years and hence it is majorly defined by one’s thoughts carried on through childhood. After all, habits are defined by a determined character.
History has witnessed great men such as Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Abraham Lincoln who demonstrated some unique qualities that differentiated them from the rest. The world is replete with examples of such people. As has been said earlier, the mentality and system of behavior that develops within a man as a unique combination of various human qualities are called character. Of these qualities the most notable are kindness, love, forgiveness, patience, sympathy, helping attitude, benevolence, self-education and well-educatedness, amiability, broad-mindedness, imperturbability, and flexibility. The energy, value, and service a person contributes to a circumstance.
Generally, all these qualities are not found in a man’s character at a specific point in time. Good characteristics imbibed over time make a person have a constructive mindset. Everything is interlinked closely in this world. That is why he has to continue to build up his character lifelong. And this way even a man-on-the-street can turn to be a great man in the future. Good habits define the character of a person which makes him go far in life. But even then the task of building up a character does not come to an end.
