A foundation of a building is not oohed and awed over while looking at a beautiful building. Normally, the architectural design captures the mind while the foundation is usually ignored. However, the foundation insures the longevity of the building to continue it’s beauty and impact on every passerby.
When it comes to leadership, the gifts and talents of oration, organization, and the ability to project vision, are often what garners the attention. The foundation that provides the support for these abilities is none other than character. Nothing creates an atmosphere for lasting impact for these gifts to flourish than character.
Character is made up of the following:
- doing what you say
- the cementing of oneself to the moral code of ethics
There is no amount of gifts, talents, or education, that can fill the void of no character.
Character will produce a future of success while creating a past without regret.
