We are not defined by our characteristics, like our gender or our age or other physical attributes. What gives us our identity is our character, that is, our behavior and our attitude. How we think, how we behave with other people, what opinions we have, our outlook on life, these parameters make up our character. And our character defines the individual whom the world is compelled either to respect or to contempt. Our character shapes not only the world’s opinion of us but also our destiny. If we have a positive attitude, we are sure to succeed. That is entirely in your control. Take charge of your personality, build yourself up, and stand out from the crowd!
