How do you define character? I love the description Hyrum Smith gives…… “Character is the ability to carry out a worthy decision after the emotion of making that decision has passed”. How often do we say we are going to do something only to find an excuse not to carry out the actions we promised? How many resolutions do we make in the moment of being excited to finally change, only to find a reason or and excuse to quit? Start today to make promises you will keep. Make small promises first and then progress from there. Sometimes in life by trying to impress others we make promises to them that we know we can’t or won’t carry out. This may be the toughest area of some peoples lives to be honest about making those commitments. This is very hard if we have gotten into the habit of making promises over and over again and always knowing we can find an excuse to “get out” of that commitment.
