Crisis tends to more readily expose a person’s true character. For those that lack key elements of character in crisis, the facade of presenting their personal reputation fades away quickly. True character patterns consistently, even more so in crisis. Reputation is pursuing a crowd of assumed approval with little internal core to center upon.
When the heat is on, people of character maintain just as they have always done. Character is in their core and they remain resilient, adaptable and personally secure to never compromise themselves and/or others. This core pattern of character for a person is always followed because that is the right thing to do, irregardless of circumstances.
Possessing true character doesn’t always make a person right in their actions and decisions. But know that they will learn from each experience with others and apply what they have learned into their core elements of character.
In the personal and professional relationships that you form, surround yourself with other people of character. This is especially true in crisis. Those lacking character will only fade away from you more with limitless excuses and alibi’s. Learn and grow in your character as you persist through life and you will have lived an honored life to be continuously better.
