This is a tough one. It is about your character and the values you want to live and be defined by. I have been very low on motivation,a lot of distractions and bad decisions along the way and I realized that reading keeps me on check, so am at it again and I got to learn all the wisdom from Robin S.Sharma on living a magnificent life before I embark on the next read:As this ritual illustrates we got to build a character that leads us to our destiny.See the excerpts below, take the challenge,the insights and be inspired,it can be done!
This is a ritual requires you to take daily, incremental action to build your character. Strengthening your character affects the way you see yourself and the actions you take. The actions you take come together to form your habits and, this is important, your habits lead you to your destiny. Remember you sow a thought, you reap an action. Reap an action, you sow a habit. Sow a habit, you reap a character. Sow a character, you reap your destiny.'
You got to live by virtuous principles some of which include: industry, compassion, humility,patience,honesty and courage.When all your actions are congruent and aligned with these principles, you will feel a deep sense of inner harmony and peace.Living this way will inevitably lead you to spiritual success.This is because you will be doing what is right.You will be acting in a way that is in accordance with the laws of nature and the laws of the universe.This is when you will start to tap into the energy of another dimension, call it a higher power if you will. This is also when your life will move from the ordinary into the realm of the extraordinary and you begin to sense the sacredness of your being.It is the first step to life long enlightenment.When you do the right things, act in a way that is congruent with your character, act with integrity, be guided by your heart, then the rest will take care of itself.
To have a congruent character;you must do little things every day to build your character. "Character is higher than intellect.A great soul will be strong to live as well as think." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.Your character is built when you act in a way that corresponds with the virtuous principles which leads to true happiness
