Measure of character.jpg

“The ultimate measure of man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
- Martin Luther King

Convenience and comfort don’t reveal character. It is in desperate times, one truly identifies one’s true character. It applies to the good and the bad. Same way, we can identify the good and bad people in life when you are met with difficulties and challenges.

We may not know how capable we are until there're some challenges waiting for us. We would be astonished to see the changes inside us after life’s turbulences.

The measure of any individual is in how good they are in the light of troubles and challenges. It doesn’t end here. The stand we take during difficult times also reveals our measure.

Where we stand despite what’s happening in life is important to assess ourselves.

You can change for the good or for the bad. In the same way, you can either take a stand or stay put. Normally, it wouldn’t be a matter. But in challenging and difficult times, the stand you take and the shades you pick a matter.

What if a person takes a bad side or bad stand? Whatever they did before will not matter. What they did today will matter. So if they choose badly, it means everyone will know who they were inside all this time.

What if a person understands what’s right and takes the stand? Whatever bad they did in the past can be undone with a good deed they chose today. We will know who the person truly is on the inside.

True-Character reveals itself at some point!


Don't be scared of the problem try to find the solution. When you start finding the solution and take the challenges to defeat your problem then you don't have to follow success, but success will follow you.

Figure out the changes that you need to make. There are many things that you need to stop and replace with the other good things that you can do. Don't see others how they are doing with their life but see your self and think about what you can do.

Decide to do something with yourself. There are many stories when men and women have broken down and then after they solve all the questions, they solve all the problems between them, and then they solve their problem and decided to leave together to leave their dreams.

As you leave your dreams you might see the people you love the most will be against you but don't lose hope keep your faith and be confident everything you do, Go after it with all your heart and keep on believing on yourself because remember if you believe in yourself whole world will believe in you.
