Character is like a rock.
If it's good character, it is the foundation upon which an incredible life is built.
If it is bad, it is like a boulder, an obstacle, that trips up and sinks a meaningful life.
Every person's character is developing or deteriorating. Only through intentionally pursuing good character can a person move towards the life they were meant to live.
The wisest man who ever lived said that a person without self-control or restraint is completely vulnerable. People who learn restraint create a healthy balance in life, and prevent regrets. My life and legacy will grow exponentially better as I develop my character in this way.
