Success in life is great when it’s achieved, but you may very well know that success doesn’t come without some failures. To be truly successful in life it’s those times of failure that matter most. What you do will determine just how much success you will have. But how do you guarantee success after a failure?
The key can be found in a quote by Horace Greeley who said, ‘Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wing, and only character endures. ’ Character is the key to long-term success. Character isn’t always the source of failure but character is always exposed in times of failure.
If you fail in a certain area and you have a terrible character, you will have to have some major life changes in order to repair the damage that is done by your character flaws. But if you have a strong character you will be ale to rebuild success and, many times, be able to do it faster than you did previously. If you built success with the right character the first time, you already have a strong foundation to build upon.
You see, character is a funny thing. It will either be the bedrock that stands strong and helps you endure through all the good and bad times in life. Or it will be the quicksand that swallows up anything that you build upon it. However, the choice is up to you as to which type of foundation you want. To guarantee success after failure, the bedrock of your character must be built on integrity, honor, and trustworthiness.
