I used this below during the recent NHS induction on our campus. I just felt like blogging it.
I feel all is NOT lost on our campus. I hope it’s the same for your workplace.
Character defines much of who we are, how we think, why we act, and what we say or do. Character is what distinguishes one person from another. Those with good character demonstrate things such as respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship.
Our character is shown by what we do when no one else is around. It gives us a sense of right and wrong. It gives us understanding that right is right, even if others are against it, and that wrong is wrong, even if others are for it.
Good character is shown when we choose to do what is right.
AND–A person’s true character shows who he or she is through words and actions.
Character is the trait that is at the core of the other three traits that have been identified – it is the backbone of service, leadership, and scholarship.
Some say knowledge is power, but power truly lies in one’s character.
The power in an individual is contained within their character.
Billy Graham, one of the most well-known evangelists of our time said, “When character is lost, ALL is lost.”
