MAY 23, 2013
Have you ever noticed all the commercials for exercise equipment and health club memberships? We hear a lot about body building ...and we hear a lot about building fame and fortune, too.
But what about building character, building principles like honesty, fairness, kindness, and moral strength? Character is, after all the most important thing we will ever build.
The Irish say it this way:
A FAIR CHARACTER IS A FAIR FORTUNE.
In other words, if you are a person of character, you are a wealthy person. Why? Because what makes a person rich is not how much money she has, but how much character she has. Today, remember this: If you want to build a truly rich life, start now by building those character muscles.
