All through the month of October, we’ve been discussing the series CHARACTER, goodwill and Godwill on all our platforms.
Like I have mentioned on the Be All You Can Be show and our daily Wisdom Nuggets For Today:
Anything you build or have can ONLY be sustained by CHARACTER, goodwill and Godwill
Anything you build or have, will be destroyed by lack of CHARACTER, goodwill and Godwill.
“Sow a thought, and you reap an act; Sow an act, and you reap a habit; Sow a habit, and you reap a character; Sow a character, and you reap a destiny” — Charles Reade
Your skill and personality can get you through the door but it is your character that will keep the door open. It is therefore indisputable that character is an essential ingredient for success. I created The Catalyst Character Quotient test based on the top 20 traits I believe we all require to have great character.
Take Our Character Quotient Test:
Guideline: You MUST be truthful and honest with yourself and in the scores you give, else you will not be able to determine the areas in which you need growth and make the requisite adjustments.
