where character counts and integrity is the keystone


Shaw, Yourself

Life isn’t about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw

I used to think that I needed to find myself which is a common misconception that many teenagers and some adults have. The truth is that we must decide who and what we want to be. Once we have that we then can set goals and work on becoming what one wants to be. Stephen Covey call this Habit 2, “Begin with the End in Mind“. I have already started teaching my boys and preparing them. I want them to know what I want them to be, to understand the goals that my wife and I have for them. She complained that I expect to much of them. My response was, “They must have something to strive for, they must have expectations above their ability. This will cause them to stretch and grow.”
