10 Character Traits to Develop
While personality is essentially set in stone, there are different traits that you can work to develop over time. These are things you have to be willing to put the work into because you cannot develop them overnight. All of these traits will serve you well and help you to become a better person over all. These will ensure that you have a character that people respond to and a character that people know that they can depend on. There are 10 traits you want to explore to see which ones that you should be working on.
When you are working on these traits, make sure that you are focusing on a single trait at a time. This makes it easier for you to focus on what needs to be done so that you are able to fully develop the trait that you seek.
This is a trait that everyone wants to work on because being able to be honest will serve you well. When you are telling the truth, you need to make sure that this truth also comes with intense sincerity. Never withhold important information and do keep all conversations truthful.
Keep Your Promises
When you stay you are going to do something, make sure that you do it. If you know that a promise is one you are unable to keep, do not make it. This is important for everything from repaying your debts to social situations.
You need to have integrity at all times no matter what and make sure that you do not allow anything to compromise your integrity. When you feel like something is wrong or right, you have to stand up for it and not let anyone dissuade you from your stance.
Before you act on something, you have to make sure to consider it fully. Make sure that you fully think about all of the possible consequences. Be accountable at all times and make sure that you know where you stand so that you can fully be liable to yourself.
Many people feel that loyalty is somewhat of a lost trait these days, but this is not true. In fact, you can become a more loyal person by simply dedicating yourself to increasing your loyalty. Always talk face to face and make sure that your loyalty extends to all people.
Be Caring and Kind
Having a strong sense of compassion and generosity is critical for having a solid character. Never be mean to someone no matter how they may be treating you. It is also important that you are never selfish even if you feel you should be.
You often hear that life is not fair, but you can help to correct this. Be fair at all times and make sure to keep your mind open. When others are talking, always listen and extend them understanding. In essence, treat everyone else how you wish for them to treat you.
Not quitting when things get hard is something that few people are able to naturally do. This means that you have to spend time working toward being strong enough to not give up. You also need to make sure that you are constantly giving the world all that you have.
Extend Respect to All People
Everyone deserves respect and the quickest way to get respect is to make sure that you are also respecting others. Be appreciative and tolerant of the differences among other people. Make sure to evaluate someone's merits before baking any judgment.
Be a Solid Citizen
There are many things you can do to be a better citizen of your country, your environment and your community. Make sure that you vote, spend time volunteering to help others and do what you can to help to protect the plant.
Make sure that you really analyze these traits and the traits that you currently possess. This will allow you to know which ones you need to work on the least. This allows you to start with those that will be easier to develop so that you can get a good groundwork of positive character traits that you can use as you start to work on the others. When you are start to work on the more difficult traits, this will take a lot of time, but if you keep your focus, you will find that you are gradually reaching better heights.
This is one of the #1 most comprehensive Psychology Books ever written, and it's free on Kindle (Get a copy, because it's like a Masters Degree wrapped-up into a single book). However, I recommend that you upgrade to the Print edition, because that copy comes with images.
