Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Character is Forged in Having Higher Standards

Character is Forged in Having Higher Standards

Motivational Power Quote

 

Character is Forged in Having Higher Standards

“You cannot dream yourself into a character; you

must hammer and forge yourself one.”

James A. Froude 1818 – 1894, English Historian, Novelist,

Biographer, Editor of Fraser’s Magazine

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

Character is forged in having higher standards

 

We meet people that tell us how great they are . . . . they ask us to trust them . . . . and to follow them.

 

They tell us what they’re going do for us . . . . and proclaim how our future will be better because of them.

 

When something goes wrong they try to disassociate them self from it is fast as they can  . . . .  look for someone to blame . . . . and have a million excuses why it was not their fault.

 

They lack character . . . . and can’t be trusted to do anything they say their going to do.

 

Character is not something you get by title . . . . a promotion . . . . with seniority.

 

Character is forged in having higher standards . . . . . and in consistently applying those standards.  

 

A person with character . . . . is someone who talks the talk . . . . and reinforces it by walking the walk. When they make a commitment they keep it.

 

Character is forged in having higher standards . . . . and they delivers those standards in your actions and to their customers consistently.

I was taught this by my father. 

If you want people to look up to you, you have to stand taller.

Character doesn't waiver. It is not always the path of least resistance but it is one you can be proud to stand by.

It is shaped and molded each day as we continue to grow. It is an ongoing process...a building so to speak.
