CHARISMA VS CHARACTER

I met a man that you would call a successful man... But I called him a rich man! This beautiful day, this man beaconed on me to follow him home... "I want to teach you something"

I was puzzled... Sitting in his Lexus Jeep; a lot of things ran through my mind. What could this man possibly want to teach me? Or he just wants to show off to me? Or this is one of those tests where if I pass, he'd give me a car or a huge amount of money? Or maybe he wants to introduce me to his daughter?

At a point I could not think anymore, I concluded... All in all, it will be a good thing.... So I just relaxed, spreading my legs and my arms; my left on the arm rest and my right, resting on the door handle... He noticed my movement, smiled and took a glimpse at me... Our eyes met and I just 'codedly' kept watching the road... "I like it..." I exclaimed in my mind...

We finally got to the house.... It was a beautiful mansion... I caught myself jaw-down few times as we first walked round the house before finally going inside....
He was steps ahead of me as we approached the door... He paved the way for me.. "come in, please" he said....

As I walked in, my jaw was automatically glued together... My eyes began to clinch to it's edges as I could not believe what I was seeing... The place was not even plastered, let alone painted or furnished... "What happened in here?" I asked...

It is what it is.... You see son, it was easy getting outside the house done... And besides not everybody gets to enter the house, most people at worst stay at the courtyard... Once it's attractive, I got all the applause and recognition I wanted.... Everyone wanted to come close... The beauty drew them closer...

Believe me, the house has been erected for over 5 years now and the interior has not been touched....

You see, while everyone was complimenting and loving the house, I was suffering for it because I had to live and sleep on bare ground.... I traded my comfort and civilization in the house for fame

Don't let me waste your time, here's what I want to teach you...

The surrounding is Charisma, something, virtue, ability or charm that attracts while the interior is character..... That's what lasts and counts...

Charisma without Character is catastrophic

  • Because you are doing a lot more than others doesn't mean you are getting a lot more done than others.

    You don't get ahead by pulling others down.

    If you wake up without a goal or dream then go back to sleep.

    Tomorrow is a product of today's activity.

    In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first... Change yourself then you can change the world!

    Always be ready and willing to do more than what is expected of you.

    What occupies your thought per time will determine your end in life.

    What seems to be our major problem today is not the unavailability of resources but the confusion of purpose.

    Without expectation, satisfaction/fulfillment can never be attained!

    What you get by reaching your destination is not nearly as important as what you will become by reaching your destination.

    Defeat never comes to any man until he admits it. Never admit defeat over your dreams and you will never be defeated!!!!!!

    Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world. You too can change the world if you have both.

    A winner is not a person that wins but a person that never gives up..
