If you want to attain something, let it be character.
It cannot be bought.
It cannot be inherited.
It cannot be bestowed on you.
It cannot be faked.
There are no shortcuts.
It is shown when you are weakest.
It is amplified when you are strongest.
It is extremely difficult to have.
But not impossible.
And those who have character, find that other secondary attainments, like prestige, wealth, advancement, relationships, spirituality, and even happiness, simply come naturally – or find them unnecessary.
If you want to be a REAL difference-maker in this world, seek to be someone of character.
