Goal for the Day: Examine Your Character

When you’re reading a book or watching a film, you relate to the characters that you encounter by evaluating their characteristics and making a judgment about them. Similarly, we form our opinions of other people by taking an inventory of their characteristics. However, how often do we examine our own characters?

Spend some time today looking inward. Get to know yourself again. What motivates you? What are your beliefs? Use the same criteria to judge yourself that you’d use to judge the people around you. You may be surprised at what you’ll find.

Are you a positive person? Are you fun? Are you supportive? Do you complain too much? Do you dwell on the negative? Do you live only for your own wants and needs?

If you met yourself, would you want to spend time with yourself?

While each of us is a remarkable individual, we all have room for improvement. An honest self-assessment will tell you if you’re exhibiting the qualities that you most value.
