A forgotten identity – Character

How will you introduce yourself if your name is taken away from you, difficult? Now you get to see what else is left to represent you best & practically you can use one among the following-

  • Inherited identity (Family, place of birth etc.)
  • Life’s success/failures (achievement in career, sports, arts etc)

Majority of us are following this concept and we are motivating and inculcating the same identity in next generation, run after an identity which gives power and recognition.

But aren’t we completely missing out to inculcate an another identity in our little ones which will earn them respect – CHARACTER (honesty, kindness, courage, integrity). Power and recognition without respect is incomplete and respect cannot be demanded it is earned.

A famous quote:

Real richness is when you are expensive that no one can buy your character.
