Let’s talk a bit about character. A person’s character shapes their life, affects their relationships, and impacts their personality. The term typically comes full of complex moral and social implications, things like:
- Moral Goodness
- Levels of Determination
What You Do in Your Spare Time Determines Your Future
Things from which people will put you on a spectrum and calculate your “reputation.”
In the times leading up to the modern era, a person who had good character will be respected and admired by the community, and a person seen to have bad character will be shunned by the community.
Fortunately, in recent times the lines, and with good reason, have become blurred between what defines good character and what qualifies as bad character.

Essentially, reputation is based upon what the public sees, character is based on what you yourself see, and do, and experience. And of all the people who have become successful, it’s not their reputation that made it possible, but instead one aspect of their character, regardless of whether this person was deemed “good” or “bad” in the public eye, which made it possible: Their level of commitment.
The question is, if you really want something, how far are you willing to go in order to achieve it? What hardships will you endure? What sort of things would you sacrifice? How much time will you spend after hours, instead of watching Netflix, working on making your dreams a reality?
Character is ultimately defined by what you do when you think nobody else is looking.
What does your character say about you?
Does it say that you are willing and capable to achieve the very thing your heart craves, or does it say “someday, maybe?”
