Objective of this Mental Strength Tip:
To demonstrate the connection between mental strength thinking and character as well as its role in success, fulfillment and happiness.
Let’s Get Started:
The best way to begin this subject is look at an expert from an article written by Theodore Roosevelt. This sums it up perfectly!
“Bodily vigor is good, and vigor of intellect is even better, but far above both is character. It is true, of course, that a genius may, on certain lines, do more than a brave and manly fellow who is not a genius; and so, in sports, vast physical strength may overcome weakness, even though the puny body may have in it the heart of a lion. But, in the long run, in the great battle of life, no brilliancy of intellect, no perfection of bodily development, will count when weighed in the balance against that assemblage of virtues, active and passive, of moral qualities, which we group together under the name of character; and if between any two contestants, even in college sport or in college work, the difference in character on the right side is as great as the difference of intellect or strength the other way, it is the character side that will win.”

Char-act-er – The stable and distinctive qualities built into an individual’s life that determines his response regardless of circumstances.
Character influences the success of every individual, family, organization, community, and nation. Although some people with bad character seem to be successful on the surface, underneath they face poor relationships, distrust, anxiety, stress, and other severe problems that all the success in the world cannot correct.
You can develop important character qualities in your life today that will help you to be truly successful in everything you do. Also, these qualities positively influences everyone you come in to contact with at home, at work, at the store, in your community, and on your job.
I came across an interesting take on character and success this past week. John Bogle (founder of Vanguard Mutual Fund Group) has written a new book called Enough: True Measures of Money, Business and Life in which he laments that we’ve created a culture where greed is good and our heroes are people who have achieved outsized success (notably measured by the size of their salary/house/cars, etc). He raises an interesting question in the “life” section of the book – “what are the things by which we should measure our lives?” Bogle goes on to write: “we focus too much on things and not enough on the intangibles that make the things worthwhile: too much on success, and not enough on character, without which success is meaningless.” Wow, now that’s a quote to file away for a future teachable moment!
All of which got me to thinking about the relationship between success and character, and how things have changed down through the years. In my father’s day, you couldn’t be considered a success if you didn’t have character; no matter how much money you had or how big your farm was… if you weren’t a “good man” (my father’s simple assessment of character), it didn’t mean squat. No character, no success – at least in my father’s eyes.
