Pick any letter of the alphabet, and you’ll find building blocks of character.
For instance, A is all about attitude, authority, authenticity, and awareness. Skip to K, and you’ll find kindness, knowledge and karma.
Every letter of the alphabet includes important lessons in building depth and strength of character, and Jim Boeglin explores some of the most critical qualities to develop in the second book of The Bike Writer trilogy.
While some seem to have been born with an innate sense of character, for most people, character is an acquired trait. It is the result of a continuing effort to do the right thing, choosing thoughts and actions that are strong, confident, brave, kind, loving, helpful, and positive.
We only need to look to the past to find role models with strong, deep character—people like George Washington, John Adams, Abe Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, and Gandhi.
This lively collection of essays about qualities that build character—as well as those that undermine it—is a must-read for anyone seeking to learn profound lessons on life.
