Ad ingenium faciendum

Recently, Charlie Sheen’s despicable behavior earned him the title “twitter champion of the world,” the person with the most twitter followers.

It’s incredible to think that we live in a world today where millions of people are keenly interested to follow the every word of a man with a character like Charlie Sheen.

Imagine the massive negative influence this person is having on millions of people…

How many kids/people (mainly in America) are emulating Sheen’s behavior because they think he looks cool?

Think about the negative consequence Sheen’s influence can have on just one young student’s life/future …all the students who are excitedly, trying to be like Sheen – thus, have no respect for authority…

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Once upon a time, a person’s character was defined by his actions; spoken words, and by the way he/she lived their life.

This was back in the day of “sir and ma’am…”  when the expression “a man of character” meant something…

…back in the days when doing good was still given preference over feeling good.

Instead of sitting around moaning and complaining…
Instead of being brought down by those around us…
Instead of stealing from ones brother…
Instead of cheating on ones wife…
Instead of wasting ones talent…

Reflect on the person you are today, and the person you want to become.

Toward the building of character…

Education, enviornment, family, friends, all play an important role in the building of one’s character …

but at the end of the day, our character is defined by the choices we make.
