TEN REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO BUILD CHARACTER BEFORE REPUTATION
The circumstance amid which you live determine your reputation, the truth you believe determines your character.
Reputation is what you are supposed to be; Character is what you are.
Reputation is the photograph; Character is the face.
Reputation comes over one from without; Character grows up from within.
Reputation is what you have when you come to a new community; Character is what you have when you go away.
Your reputation is made in a moment; your character is built in a lifetime.
Reputation is learned in an hour; Character does not come to light for a year.
Reputation grows like mushroom; Character last like eternity.
Reputation makes you rich or makes you poor; Character makes you happy or makes you miserable.
Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone; Character is what the angels say about you before the throne of God.
Note- Worry less about what others think, and give your attention to your inner Character and remember if you take care of your character, your reputation will take care of itself…
