A key understanding

You will never be who you want to be, until you are happy with who you are.

Thomas F. Shubnell

Get to work

You can’t get much done in life if you only work on the days you feel good.

Jerry West



Be bold in what you stand for and careful what you fall for.

Ruth Boorstin


Show your character

Will is character in action.

William McDougall



Talent develops in tranquillity, character in the full current of human life.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

At times it is useful to work on your own in order to increase your skills, in order to learn new things.

At other times you have to throw yourself at people and at life to build charakter.

Do not neglect any of those aspects.


Work reveals Character

Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.

Sam Ewing

Which type are you?


You choose your way!

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attiturde in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
Viktor Frankl

Wow, powerful!

I don’t know any quote or example that shows the importance of this fact in a more clear way. YOU decide who you are and it is not at all depending on outer circumstances.

So use this possibility to make the best out of yourself and stop blaming anything but you for your character!
