Character is character. Your character is who you are, not what you have. You can be successful and have a bad character. You can also be very poor (financially) and have a great character. Success is success. Character is character.

If you are a successful person with great character, people will want to be around you. People like to be around men and women with great character. People with great character are attractive. It doesn’t matter how they look, where they live, and how they speak, if you have great character, you will attract the same people with great character into your life.

“Your character is who you are, not what you have.”

If you are successful and you don’t have character that brings people closer to you, you are not a successful person. If you have nothing (in terms of finance) and your character is good, you are a successful person.

If you have character, you have everything. If you don’t have character, you have nothing. Character brings success. Lack of character brings failure.

You can build great character. it is not too late. Here is how you can do that:

Start thinking positively about people. Treat people with respect and dignity. Be ethical. Say what you want to do and do it. Put the needs of other people first. It does not mean you have to starve to death. Practice those things every day. It is not going to happen overnight. It is going to take time. Be patient.

Success is what you have, and character is who you are. Period.


The power of unconditional love

True unconditional love is free, but powerful. You don’t have to search for love, pray for true unconditional love.

There is love, there is real or true love, and there is unconditional love. To my understanding, there is nothing that can replace true unconditional love.”

When people love you unconditionally, they don’t care how you look, how you behave, or how you talk. They care about you. They focus on you, not your behavior. When people love you unconditionally, they don’t expect anything in return. They accept who you are. They appreciate and celebrate you, and they know where you are coming from. In other words, they understand you. They don’t focus on your mistakes, on your flaws, or on failures.Instead, they focus and celebrate you.

Don’t go out there and start searching for love, give love to people. They will give love back to you. True love.

Elizabeth Kubler Ross says, “The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.”

The true unconditional love you are looking for starts with you. In other for people to love you, you MUST first love yourself. Give it to yourself. Don’t wait for people to love you before you love yourself. If you do, you will be disappointed. Nobody has time for you the way you will have time for yourself. If you don’t have time for yourself, no one will.

Give yourself love, real love!
