I am the Founder and Developer of the Character Intelligence Program. Here is a short description of who I am in character. I am a moralist and an Integrity of Character Protagonist of 18 years.
The external status symbols of achievements, possessions, medals, trophies, professional titles are not my basic identity. Because they are not that basic identity they may eventually disappear or be forgotten, but the basic identity is what remains with me, and my character principles form that identity. When I became willing to at least try to live by character principles, it was difficult for me to understand and apply them. Virtually many of the principles were difficult for me to put into practice because they went against what I had seen practiced around me in various personal, social, spiritual and professional settings. My character was so unwell, that there were times I wondered whether things would ever get better. By being patient with myself, it all began to make sense.
The character principles began to work for me, but only when I stopped questioning how they could possibly be effective in my life, and became willing to actually apply them. When I began leading a principled life I soon realized that I've embarked on a journey without end. Today, I find to my great relief, that I no longer seek elusive destinations in character unwellness.
The new journey of character principles provides all the peace and fulfillment I could ever wish for. I am grateful for the principles which allow me to move forward. I am more than compensated for my effort and the countless blessings I receive, sometimes overwhelm me. My principled life is a great gift unto itself. As each day unfolds and I apply character principles, I'm blessed, in receiving joy, hope and peace which enable me to reach out to others. May my true nature with all its splendor and confidence, my character, at all times find, that I have uncovered its principles in myself.
KNOW THE PRINCIPLES. APPLY THE PRINCIPLES AND YOU WILL BLESS YOUR LIFE, YOUR FAMILY'S LIFE AND THE LIVES OF OTHERS.
