Strategy #4 - Reshape Your Character

Our parents and other love ones have talked to you and me about how important it is to have good character. And I totally agree that we all should strive to have the best character trait out there, but sometimes as we get older we have to revisit the character we have developed so many years ago. This post today is about reshaping the character we have so long held onto.
Strategy #4 requires you to choose one intellectual trait - intellectual perseverance, autonomy, empathy, courage, humility or any other one you feel you would like to address. You are to focus on how you can develop that trait in yourself.
For this week, I chose - Courage. "The courage to choose love & The courage to live out my dream". Just recently I posted on my Studio 2229 blog - "Good, Better, the Best" my courage to choose love.
The ideal is to focus on your verbal and physical reactions, emotions and thoughts as you introduce a trait into your life today. For example if you choose humility- look for when you admit you are wrong, when you refuse to admit you are wrong, or when you become defensive when another person tries to point our a deficiency within work or thinking.
The point is to pay closer attention to your actions, record them and learn how to better handle such situations. Character development is a good thing, and like when we were younger it made us into better people, by taking the time to reshape your character a little more can only mean that we are to become better artists and as people.
Take a few moments today and introduce a new character trait into your creative life. Looking forward to hearing your responses.
Don't forget to pass this along to others who you feel would enjoy it.
