Adversity and Character

Dr. John C. Maxwell has shared that while crises do not necessarily make one’s character, they certainly have the ability to reveal one’s character.  Adversity is a crossroads that makes a person choose one of two paths:  character or compromise.  When character is a choice, growth is the result, even if in choosing character, the consequences are negative.  The next time you have a decision to make which will have an impact on your role as a leader (within your household, group, school, organization, etc), make the most integritous choice, one that will strengthen your character.
