A habit is a regular behavior that requires little or no thought. A habit is hard to give up.
Habits change into Character.
A character is the way someone thinks, feels, and behaves. It’s your consistent behavior whether you’re being watched by a crowd or when you are alone.
If you don’t choose your habits, pretty soon your habits will choose you.
My character makes me accountable to the choices I make in life. If someone speaks badly about me, my character can make him or her either believe it or not believe it.
The secret to who we truly are is determined by our daily rituals:
- You get up in the morning – what is the first thing you do?
- You go to bed in the night – what’s the last thing do you do?
- You’ve been longing for some alone time and you have finally gotten the opportunity to be alone – what is the first thing will you do?
Two quotes most parents tell their children: 1. Don’t be fooled – bad company corrupts good manners. 2. Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.
Many times in our quest to fit in – we compromise our character. Once your character is ruined – it’s difficult to gain it back.
It’s takes courage to stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone.
Someone said, it takes 21 days to break a habit. Habits turn into Character and Character goes before you even get into any room.

Your words of wisdom are worth heeding. There is opportunity here for us to choose our destiny, starting with choosing our thoughts. Continued blessings!
I’m grateful to have you as my big sister and one who has consistently held my hands in life. 🦋🦋
This is so true. The challenge is, nothing happens overnight. The evolution from a mere thought, through to character, then destiny subtly creeps up and in. Before we know it we are the person we never thought we would become. The bible says in proverbs ‘guard your heart’
Excellent words of wisdom.
Very deep. Profound thoughts. Thank you my dear
