Character & Conduct
Character is the first aspect of the relationship between You and the World and enables authentic influence beyond your immediate relationships and existing network.
“Character isn’t something you were born with and can’t change, like your fingerprints. It’s something you weren’t born with and must take responsibility for forming.”Jim Rohn
Your character shapes your personal reputation in the wider community and on your market. Can you be trusted? Do you have integrity? Do you deliver?
Your character is determined by your conduct: your day-to-day actions as seen by others. You can master your passion and talent, build a strong knowledge base and network of relationships, but if you send out the wrong or inconsistent message through your conduct, you will still find few resources and opportunities are attracted to you.
Your character and conduct is not something you discover, acquire or plan for. You can start with living it today. What would be your conduct today? Your actions – no matter how small – are already making impact and leaving tracks. Today, if you use it to choose your conduct deliberately, could be your biggest opportunity. Use it well.
