      The Six C's of Character 495.3

      As you consider your goals for the New Year, I hope you'll think about
      working on your character. After all, the best road to a better life
      is to be a better person, and all of us can be better.

      One of the best ways to do this is to focus on the Six C's of
      Character: conscience, courage, consideration, compassion, confidence,
      and control.

      First, be a person of conscience. Listen to the inner voice that helps
      you know right from wrong and urges you to do what is good and noble.

      Second, be courageous. Confront the challenges and choices of your
      life forthrightly. Make the tough decisions that need to be made and,
      above all, maintain your integrity by doing what you know to be right
      even when it costs more than you want to pay.

      Third, be considerate. Be more deliberative, thoughtful, and attentive
      as to how your words and actions will affect others, and reflect on
      your character. Think ahead so you can avoid undesirable and
      undesired consequences.

      Fourth, be compassionate. Demonstrate a genuine concern for the
      well-being of others. Be kinder and more charitable. Strive to
      understand more and judge less.

      Fifth, be confident in your capacity to overcome whatever
      difficulties come your way with integrity and dignity. Don't
      underestimate your resiliency. Resolve to persist until you prevail.

      Sixth, be in control of your emotions, appetites, and urges that
      tempt you to compromise your principles or sacrifice long-term goals
      for short-term indulgences.

      Remember, your character is your destiny.
