The road to success can be a long, arduous journey. It is a journey that needs a step-by-step, clearly defined strategy to arrive at the final destination. To accomplish this goal, Gary A. McAbee has laid out a series of success principles, carefully placed in a logical order, which can lead to greater success. These principles have been used consistently by many of the highest achievers in our society. If they can use these concepts to reach success, then they can also be used by everyone to achieve victory.

The book Defining Success: One Word at a Time starts with defining and visualizing the end result: victory. From there, concepts like faith, passion, knowledge, and patience are introduced to the reader as building blocks toward success. Finally, the book ends with an all-encompassing definition of success. This definition, like all of the success keywords before it, includes the previous concepts outlined in this book.

A careful review of the definition of character allowed me to see that one word stands out more than the rest. The word is aggregate, which means total. This word is important because it means our character is a combination of many things, all wrapped up into one package. Applying what we already know, we can say that character can, and should include thoughts of victory, faith, and the possibilities of if. Character should be shaped by our dreams and vision, and fueled to lead in a positive direction because of our passion.

I am sure there are an endless amount of qualities and traits that make up character. Therefore, to learn about character, it is very important to zero in on the main qualities that make each of us unique. As the definition says, character is the traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing. So I cannot tell you what makes up your character. But what I can tell you is your character should be made up of positive qualities that allow you to move in a positive direction. Each of these positive qualities can, and should, be developed to as a way to help us as we strive to become more successful on a daily basis. I believe we should find the best positive qualities we possess and let those shape our character.

It is important to note that your “best” quality may not always be a good thing. One person’s best quality may be their ability to be show empathy. This quality would be great in any field or endeavor that helps people in their time of need. As we will see, empathy is a key component to success. On the other hand, another person’s “best” quality may be their ability to lie. This trait would not be helpful in a field that helps people in their time of need. The logic here is that we can possess both positive and negative qualities that make up our character. In other words, your character is based in part on your choices. Do you choose to accentuate your positive traits? Or do you spend a lot more of your valuable time accentuating your negative traits?

Successful people know developing their character is their choice. Character truly is who you are when you are in dark. When you are all alone, what things do you think about? After a million mental exercises, which of those thoughts do you want to turn into actions? Finally, which of those thoughts becomes your present or future reality? I believe the things we do are born from our thoughts, our ability to transfer those thoughts, and our delivery of those thoughts through actions. This is my definition of character. This also has to include the realization that character includes, to a lesser extent, the thoughts we think that are not put into action. Therefore, key components of character are twofold: they are what we think as well as what we actually do.

 

Affirmation: I am responsible for the traits that improve my character and propel me toward success.
