Yesterday I would have screamed, “Don’t Act Like A Jerk!” if I wasn’t so aware of my tone of voice.
My tone of voice and the underlying thoughts and feelings have tripped me up more than I’d like to admit. Before I got around to admitting it, in this post, I asked: What should you be seeing in your own life? What do you let stand in the way of seeing it?
Hopefully you’ll think about that a while, but in the meantime with an honest assessment in hand, I’ll tell you how I’m dealing with my contribution to the turmoil I tend to create.

I asked: How’s your character?
Does Your Character Need A Jump-Start?
Our music affects us.
Does yours lift you up or tear you down?
Our friends’ influence us.
Do your friends build your character or burden your conscience?
Our books teach us
Is your reading list bad, neutral or helpful? Why settle for bad or neutral?
Our mentors guide us
Do you follow your mentor’s lead or make excuses and postpone progress?
