Could creating your character be likened to an artist creating a sculpture?可以創造你的性格好比一個藝術家創造一個雕塑? In my opinion, I believe that character在我看來,我相信性格 leadership training is not something that just happens by itself, any more than a chisel can create a work of art without the hand of an artist guiding it.不只是剛巧本身,任何超過鑿子能從事藝術創作,沒有手,一個藝術家的指導。 In both instances, a conscious decision for a specific outcome has been made.在這兩個例子中,有意識地決定為一項具體成果已經取得進展。 A conscious process is at work.一個有意識的過程,是在工作中。 Character is the result of hundreds and hundreds of choices you make that gradually turn who you are, at any given moment, into who you want to be.性格是造成幾百選擇,讓你慢慢轉你是誰,在任何特定的時刻,誰想要得到的。 If that decision-making process is not present, you will still be somebody.如果說,在決策過程的不在場,但你仍然會有人。 You will still be alive, but may have a personality rather than a character.您仍然活著,而且可能有個性,而不是一個性格。

Character is not something you were born with and can’t change like your fingerprint.性格是不是你出生並不能改變喜歡你的指紋。 In fact, because you weren’t born with it, it is something that you must take responsibility for creating.事實上,因為你不是天生的,也可能是某種東西,你必須負起責任,為創造。 I don’t believe that adversity by itself builds character and I certainly don’t think that success erodes it.我不相信逆境本身建立在性格,我肯定不認為成功的蠶食。 Character is built by how you respond to what happens in your life.人格是由你如何回應會發生什麼,在你的生活。 Whether it’s winning every game or losing every game.不論是打贏每場比賽,還是失去了所有的比賽。 Getting rich or dealing with hard times.致富或處理困難的時刻。 You build character out of certain qualities that you must create and diligently nurture within yourself.你建字出一定的素質,你必須創造和辛勤培育內部自己。 Just like you would plant and water a seed or gather wood and build a campfire.就像你一樣,將植物和水的種子或蒐集木材和建立一個篝火。 You’ve got to look for those things in your heart and in your gut.你要尋找這些東西在你的心和你的腸道。 You’ve got to chisel away in order to find them.你要鑿離為了尋找這些失踪士兵。 Just like chiseling away the rock in order to create the sculpture that has previously existed only in your imagination.就像刻遠離岩石,以創造雕塑群說,以前只存在於你的想像力。

But do you want to know the really amazing thing about character?但是,你要知道真正了不起的一件事性格? If you are sincerely committed to making yourself into the person you want to be, you’ll not only create those qualities, but you’ll continually strengthen them.如果你是真誠地致力於使自己的人,你想成為,您不僅創造所具備的特質,但你會不斷加強。 And you will recreate them in abundance even as you are drawing on them every day of your life.你將再現他們在豐度,甚至由於你是繪畫對他們的每一天,你的生活。 Just like the burning bush in the biblical book of Exodus, the bush burned but the flames did not consume it.就像焚燒布什在聖經書外流,布什焚毀,但火勢並沒有消耗。 Character sustains itself and nurtures itself even as it is being put to work, tested, and challenged.品格維繫著自己和熏陶人本身,即使它正在得到落實工作,經測試,並提出質疑。 And once character is formed, it will serve as a solid, lasting foundation upon which to build the life you desire.一旦性格形成的,它一定會成為堅實,持久的基礎,來建立自己的生命,你的願望。
