4. Developing Character May 22, 2013

"If you think about what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself. Character is a by-product, and any man who devotes himself to its cultivation in his own case will become a selfish prig" ~Woodrow Wilson

To develop our character we should first aim to do right by others. Being good to others is an action; becoming a good person is a result of this action. If our goal is merely to appear good in the eyes of others, we are acting selfishly. And little good comes from this.

I will devote myself to helping others and not worry about whether I am perceived as a good person. My character will take care of itself if I take care of others.
