Of course, not everyone will become a government, community or religious leader, but in every person’s life, there will be opportunities to lead. Have you ever considered that your mentor or teacher is a leader? If your parents supervise others, or are managers on their jobs, then they too are leaders. You also may be called upon to be a leader. The fact is, leading others does not have an age limit. So, regardless of how young or old you are, you can learn how to lead and value being a positive leader. Sooner or later everyone is asked to lead in one way or another. You may be asked to lead a team project, or you may be chosen as a lead supervisor, so be prepared.
Have you ever considered what the world will be like in the next few years? Will technology have advanced so much that cars would fly and vacations could be taken on another planet? Will the effects of violence and crime still ripple outward causing fear, hate and mistrust, or will the value of having a moral character stop the fighting and wars? Will our society be better or worse?
Your character is made up of many different qualities. They are called character traits. Character traits can be either positive or negative based upon your values, what you have been taught, your choices and your experiences. The key to having moral character is to develop positive character traits. When you demonstrate these traits on a consistent basis, you will be known as a person of integrity. People who have moral character show by their actions and attitude that they care about themselves and others.
