Listen to episode 553 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Finding Your Place in Life | Personal Development. Edited and adapted from How the Mind Works by Christian D. Larson.
Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: There is a belief among many that honest people ought to have the best that life can give. But the mere state of being honest is not sufficient. The best person in the world will be a failure if they do not employ their ability constructively — because it is doing things that counts. And to do things, the powers we possess must work in harmony and with a definite object in view.
In this regard, we must not forget that a mind that is pure, honest, and just can accomplish far more with a given ability than one who does not have these virtues. Virtues do not create, but they do have the power to give proper direction to the process of creation. It is constructive ability that does things. Character simply guides the doing so that the product may be of the highest order and the greatest worth.
