Becoming Who You Want to Be, One Characteristic at a Time

“Self-respect is not the same as self-confidence or self-esteem…It is not earned by being better than other people at something. It is earned by being better than you used to be, by being dependable in times of testing, straight in times of temptation. It emerges in one who is morally dependable. Self-respect is produced by inner triumphs, not external ones.”

― David Brooks, “The Road to Character”

It is incorrect to believe you are just the way you are and you cannot change it. “I’m not good at small talk”. “I am not good with money”. “That’s just the way I am”. Wrong! It is very much possible to change how we interact with other people, ourselves and the environment. You can add, remove, expand personal characteristics and behavior if you are willing to put in a bit of effort.

In this episode I take you through an exercise that shows you how to achieve becoming more of the person you want to be, one simple step at a time, one characteristic at a time.

Be well and enjoy growth.
