If there is no EVERYDAY, PRACTICAL APPLICATION to your beliefs or philosophy; then there is no WORTH or VALUE that it can CONTRIBUTE to SOCIETY. Seek PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS that PRODUCE RESULTS, not just ones that SPEAK of them.
When a person ATTEMPTS to SWAY THE OPINION of others against people, their character has ALREADY FAILED THEM. If one is TRULY RIGHTEOUS and living in VIRTUES, his/her CHARACTER will SOON ENOUGH shine ABOVE the LIES. STAY TRANSPARENT, because those who tell you this is FOOLISH only GAIN SWAY when you FALL TO VICES from SEEDS they had PREVIOUSLY PLANTED in your life.
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.
Most pursue the ability and knowledge to TEACH and GUIDE, but TOO FEW desire the ability and WISDOM of LEARNING.
While it is TRUE that a positive attitude may not CHANGE the circumstances; NO circumstance will move itself as a hindrance without FIRST seeing the BENEFIT and OPPORTUNITY of its CHALLENGE.
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.
