Strength of Character

How you hold up in the face of temptation calls for real strength of character.

Temptation comes in abundance and it is when you still walk the straight and narrow that you truly shine. How can intentions and character be tested till you have actually been faced with temptation? And if you have walked away from temptation once, what’s to say you would be able to so do a second time too?

The truth lies not in the spic and span marble flooring but in the dust swept under the carpet. It is when the mask slips that the real individual emerges. Your mettle as a professional lies in the away you treat your peers and subordinates, not the way you kowtow to the boss. Your worth as a friend and companion is in how honest you are with your friends, not behind their backs.

All of us wears musks – for each other as well as ourselves. Nothing wrong with that, so long as the mask’s don’t sleep at the critical moment. There is a good you and a bad you and the struggle between the two is a part of all of us. The true test of character isn’t in the non-existence of the bad you, but in your ability to suppress it. Yes, even when nobody is looking!

About Bikramjit

Please read a more interesting introduction at "About Me" section. I am an abstract thinker who is fun to watch in action. I not only generate new & better ideas for how things can be improved, but I also offer empowering courage to pursue them. I am exceptionally encouraging & motivating, and sometimes help others to reach their goals & dreams. People probably see me as a good mentor due to my patience and talent for giving direction. I am more expressive than introspective, more deliberate than spontaneous, more passionate than composed – and an assertive personality who does not hesitate to challenge anything in life!
