The Road to Character
by David Brooks
What are the inner character virtues we should seek today, and why are they so hard to identify and achieve in this day and age? Discover how to find moral character development opportunities in your own life, and how to balance your inner and outer selves for lasting fulfillment.
The Road to Character is a character study of famous historical figures and how they struggled with personal faults or challenges in order to achieve an improved moral identity. The traits valued by society today are more outwardly focused than they were in the past, and this can lead to an empty life lacking in meaningful purpose and true happiness. Looking back to a time when these individuals made history can teach us what we are missing now, and how to obtain it.
You will learn:
- How you can create a shield of dignity for yourself that repels all humiliation
- How to find out what vocation life is calling for you to serve
- How to build relationships that are based in moral principles which will ultimately bring out the best in you.
