Character Development-Part 3- Making changes to our character

Now that we've looked at both positive and negative character we can begin to focus on making changes in our own character so that we can develop a more positive character.

Make a list of at least five things that you want to improve about your character.

Now next to each of these things write down what changes you will need to make in order to successfully change those negative traits into positive ones.

Here is an example:

What I Would Like To Change

For example: I want to stop being aggressive.

What I Can Do To Change
For example: I will practice self-control, be patient with others, or not speak harshly.

Can you think of any other ways that you can change your character so that it becomes more positive?

Developing positive character starts with making small changes in our lives. There is no point in looking at others and picking on their faults. We all have a responsibilty to change our own lives and better only our own character. Once we start to make small changes in ourselves we will see that it will become easier and naturally we will be inclined to behave in a more positive way. (Inshaa Allah)

Developing a good character takes a lot of work and it is an ongoing effort. At times it can become very difficult. Perseverance and patience is therefore of utmost importance. Only after hard work will we begin to see the benefits, but the work is worth it as we will see that good character helps us to be more at peace, not only with others, but with ourselves as well!

Butterfly Award

I've received the Butterfly Award for this blog from a special person. Thank you for this Marie, I really appreciate it. Please check out Marie's blog; The Colour of Our skin. Its a very interesting blog, I won't say more, you should see for yourself.

The rules of this award is that you have to share somethign about yourself and then pass the award on to other bloggers, so here goes:

About Myself: I am the type of person who prefers quality instead of quantity. So I'll rather have a few great friends, than have many friends who don't really know me that well. I'm not the most outgoing and sociable person, for me visiting an old friend is more rewarding than going out with a group of people. Superficial things in life really irritate me and one of my motto's is "be yourself no matter what others think of you".

(As you can see I also tend to write too much so I'll leave the sharing at that for now;-])

Other great bloggers: I'd like to award this to many great bloggers out there, but to be really honest, it's very time consuming and I'm a bit short on time right now so I will pass the award on to the following blogs:

Hope you all have a great weekend!
