Another important way of building an amiable and amicable character is by being aware of your basic rights. A person’s basic right consist of : acting in ways to promote dignity and self-respect as long as the dignity of others and self-respect are not violated.

Basic Rights

There are certain actions individuals should take which promote dignity and self-respect. Once their dignity and self-respect are protected, the individual is able to walk, talk and feel good in the company of friends, family and colleagues. This is good for character building and personality development. This demands that the individual need to be disciplined and not make a fool of themselves.

Be treated with respect: Respecting others brings about respect for oneself by others. Many individuals tend to respect those who respect them. When you treat people with respect, they in turn reciprocate it. This is good for one’s character building and personality development. Respect their views, beliefs, background, tastes and perceptions.

Say ‘NO’ and not feel guilty: Many individuals often turn themselves to laughable, disrespectful and distrusted persons because they are unable to say no, even when they know they cannot meet the obligation demanded of them. While many individuals do not want to hurt their spouse, friends and family members and colleagues, they continually accept responsibilities, which they know they cannot successfully carry out. As a result of their inability to say ‘no’ they continue to accept responsibilities which they are unable to complete. Thus, they are labeled irresponsible and distrusted.

Experience And Express Your Feelings

Character building and personality development can be disturbed when individuals refuse to experience or express their feelings. When some individuals internalize their feelings and refuse to experience or share them with others, they often end up with bad moods and bad temper, which are not complimentary to character building and personality development. Refusal to experience or express one’s feelings often leads to physiological problems such as ulcers, migraine headache and hypertension. This is typical of introverts, who prefer to write their feelings in diaries. Individuals are strongly urged to let out their emotions by discussing with professionals or concerned genuine friends with whom they can together seek solution to their problems. Another outlet is through physical exercises.

Take time to slow down and think: Many individuals are often grouchy when stressed. As a result of this, they often become unapproachable. Character building and personality development cannot be reached when people hold on to themselves. There is need for social interaction for effective communication and socialization with others.

Change Your Mind

It is only a rigid person that has problems changing his or her mind when additional information is received. Rigid personality does not promote character building and personality development. An individual who is willing to change his or her mind as a result of new facts is a respectable person who is not rigid or dogmatic. An individual who cannot change his or her mind when new facts are introduced on an issue is someone who refuses to grow, build his character and improve on his or her personality.

Ask for what you want: One’s ability to ask for what he wants is an ability to fight for one’s right. It is unfortunate that some individuals, instead of asking and fighting for their rights, pretend to be satisfied even when they are suffering. A person who is a pretender and a coward can neither achieve character building nor personality development.

Do less than you are humanly capable of doing: An individual who does not know his or her limitations will surely overwork himself or herself. Doing less than you are humanly capable of foes not mean you should be lazy. Instead, it means you should not over-task or overwork yourself. Many individuals are known to think they are super humans. They generally refuse to allow others such as their subordinates to assist. They refuse to trust others, as they would like to do everything by themselves, even if it means they are stretched beyond their limits.

Ask For Information (Seek Help)

In good character building and personality development, every individual should be able to seek help and collect necessary information from others. This is currently known as conferencing. When you are able to seek information from others and utilize the information to the good of mankind. For an effective character building and personality development individuals are urged to seek knowledge from others.

Make mistakes: A writer once claimed “one who does not make mistakes does not make attempts”. In order to succeed in life, an individual must make mistakes and continue to try new ideas built on the mistakes.

And finally, feel good about yourself: It is absolutely impossible for an individual to feel good about others if he/she does not feel good about himself or herself. An individual who does not feel good about himself or herself cannot take part in character building or personality development. Feeling good about oneself is like feeling satisfied with one’s life. One needs to be happy with oneself before one can embark on character building personality development.

You have covered from every angle Funom to make our lives so much better. Most of the ills arise from our greed and hubris. We also tend to take life as a zero sum game where one has to lose for another to gain, but everyone can gain with the right attitude. We look for heaven afterlife but that shows how ungrateful we are to our Creator who takes so much effort to make us feel comfortable in this wonderful home where we are mere guests though expected to play our role as co-creators - siva

Oh Siva... Your comment is just overwhelming, warm and blessed! You are right in every word here.. Life can be a win-win situation, but we humans choose to make it unecessarily complicated.. Think through the reasons for some of the wars, riots and international conflicts we've had in history.... Even coming back to our day to day live, if we think through some of the quarrels we engage in, they are totally unnecessary and complicated in their own weird way. Thanks a lot for this insight Siva.
