A Character Building Day

A Character Building Day
June 22, 2018 Dan Raimondi

“Don’t say I’m having a bad day. Say I’m having a character-building day.” Les Brown has many great messages but this resonates the most.

For the Stoics, it’s the idea that every struggle is practice.

For Jocko – when facing failure or setbacks – it’s saying the word “Good.”

The stories we tell ourselves shape our perspective and our attitude. Some face tough situations with action- they work harder and dig deeper because it’s part of who they are.

“I don’t have bad days- I have character-building days.”
