There comes a point in EVERY person's life that they MUST consider their previous WAYS OF THINKING and how to MATURE THEM properly. Those who claim there is NO NEED for maturing their thinking have indirectly admitted their GOALS, VISION and ETHICS has ALSO not matured. GROWTH IS NECESSARY - EMBRACE IT!!!!
You CANNOT define VIRTUES such as PATIENCE, INTEGRITY and HONOR without taking into account the VALUE these virtues CREATE for an individual who POSSESES THEM. It's not a value that can be ASSUMED, rather, it can only be LEARNED through PRACTICAL USE and APPLICATION.
For every SET OF ACTIONS, there exists an INTENTION, an ACTUAL RESULT and an OWNERSHIP of INCEPTION. Making each of those MATCH is the KEY INGREDIENT in BUILDING CHARACTER.

At some point in our short lives, we realize the IMPORTANCE of FAMILY and FRIENDSHIP in a way that PRESSES UPON US the need to SUPPORT EACH OTHER without EXPECTATIONS of GAIN. Just a DESIRE to see each other RISE ABOVE IT ALL.
NO WORK we do goes UNCOMPENSATED! Everything has a WORTH and PRICE, whether Good or Bad, and our RESPONSE should give CREDENCE to this FACT in order to move BEYOND the UNNECCESSARY corruption of a VINDICTIVE NATURE.
There is ALWAYS something POSITIVE to pull from EVERY experience. We RARELY recognize it, and many times we LOOK FOR IT when it's STARING RIGHT AT US. Look for the POSITIVE VALUE of every situation, ESPECIALLY those experiences we consider to be only negative in worth.
There isn't a thing in this life that lacks PURPOSE. Seek PURPOSE in EVERYTHING you encounter, and even the NEGATIVE will seem to have POSITIVE RESULTS.
There's no MOMENT OF TRUTH, there are only MOMENTS where we can RECOGNIZE the truth or IGNORE IT. Our CHOICE is what defines the moment, and our DIGNITY is what ALIGNS us WITH TRUTH or AGAINST IT. Not a DIGNITY born of PRIDE, but one born of CLEAR CONCIENCE and RIGHTEOUS CHARACTER.
