  1. These all are equally important .but if I consider only one then watch your thought is more important because if our thought is clear about all then our words, our character ,and our habits are also same as like our thoughts .so I will go with watch our thought.

  2. We build our life thought-by-thought and deed-by-deed. It is through a lifetime of thoughts and deeds that you form yourself and determine the impact your life will have on others. These thoughts and deeds are, in reality, choices that you make about what you will say or the way you will act. As a result, it’s not something that happens to you, but rather how you choose to think and what you choose to do that determines the type of person you’ll be and the level of happiness you’ll ultimately achieve. If we choose our thoughts and deeds wisely, we are taking advantage of the opportunity we have to live a happy and rewarding life.

  3. I feel that No:3 – RESPONSIBILITY is a heavyweight trait, Being responsible means being dependable, keeping promises and honoring our commitments. Responsibility begins with “little things” like taking care of your belongings, working with a good attitude, resolving conflicts PEACEFULLY, and OWNING UP to mistakes. Taking responsibility in these “little things” prepares us for greater opportunities in the future.

  4. ‘Character’ itself has an immense impact which is a mixture of a plethora of life skills to form a solid personality.Considering above 6 pillars, Responsibility is one such trait which inculcates rest bit by bit.If we are aware about our responsibilities, we will carry trustworthiness followed by fairness which will eventually result in respecting and caring relations.

  5. According to me, all the pillars are equally important because if a person is having all these qualities then a person can live useful and meaninful life. All these 6 pillars are related to each other because in today’s life having TRUST on somebody is very important because if Trust is there all the pillars are equally relevant.

  6. Character in many ways is a combination of our mind, soul, and backbone.

    Each year, we begin with a ritual with little lasting impact: Resolution-making. Instead of making resolutions, maybe we should do things to build our character every day. Imagine what a year’s worth of character-building could produce.
    We should never ignore our habits, though. Habits effect character. Eating right. Exercising frequently. Reading often. All these elements provide the nutrients for a clear mind, activating spirit, and strong backbone. Good habits feed our inner goodness.

    I have thought about my own life work experiences, and these seven character activities came to mind:
    – Work hard to build, create, survive, and excel
    -Engage in tough conversations with empathy and actions
    -Nurture relationships that matter through good and challenging times

    -Exhibit humility in achievement and success
    -Be nice when everything tempts you not to be nice

    -Always get up, no matter what, to create something better than the day before.

    -No task is too small and no person is too ordinary or extraordinary to extend a hand and help.

  7. All above pillars are equal . According to me pillar no. 3 matters alott because responsibility makes your life better. Responsible person is one who can be promised and trusted to act without needing strict supervision because they are accountable for their own behaviour.

  8. According to me no 1 and 3 as to be trustworthy and loyal people want to follow a leader who will stretch them beyond where they are now, but who’ll also allow them to try—and to fail. When we are loyal to our followers, they’ll be loyal to us and make every effort to succeed on our behalf and on behalf of the organization. There are few things that strengthen the leader-follower bond more than when a leader shows loyalty to a follower in need and as responsible person as it is essential that you do your best to meet your obligations to others. If you promise to do something, you should try very hard to fulfill that promise. Yes, sometimes things change—so it’s no longer desirable to move forward with something—or circumstances may prevent your doing something exactly when you said you’d do it. But in either of these cases, it’s your responsibility to discuss the problem with your close one determine the best way forward. There’s nothing quite as disappointing as relying on someone to do something and having them go disappear on you.
    Don’t overcommit yourself. If you have a hard time saying no to people, you’re likely to set yourself up for failure. To prevent your disappointing people, avoid over-promising and under-delivering. If anything, you should do the opposite—that is, under-promise and overdeliver—but never deliberately under-promise in an attempt to make yourself look like a hero. That would just be dishonest. Nor should you make yourself look like a slacker by committing to doing too little work. i think from this view we make our life usefull and successful.

  9. Good Character is most important for living respectful life and according to me all above pillars plays their role according to the situation. But all these are very important because without these a wholehearted person can’t survive happily. So someone says:When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. It’s all depends on humans what actually they want.

  13. These 6 Points are co related to each other but i think character build up is most important .Watch your character where u think i need improvement ,do it.A person with a good character will have a influencing personality for others .Character build up means work hard to achieve ur goals ,have a good attitude or behaviour with others,be ready to help others,do good deeds,be a role model for others ,having good habits ,do your job like worship ,never make your work burden for u .Next i think we should watch our thoughts ,bcz when we think something bad ,it will convert into wrong action and then automatically it will affect your character ,so have control on your bad thoughts ,it creates negativity .

  17. I strongly believe all these pillars are indispensable part of life to make it meaningful and successful. Moving on with negativity in mind makes life hopeless where we feel all doors are closed. Just deleting negative button from our lives will entirely transform our ways and make us build a strong character and a beautiful life.

  18. All the traits are very important for a person to live a successful life but if I have to choose one then I think we should watch our words and say each and every word very thoughtfully and carefully because the other person is going to judge us only by our words.

  19. All the traits are equally important and essential because they are useful in our lives. If i need to choose only one; then definitely i will choose Good Thoughts. Because positive n good thoughts are the backbone for good life. If we will think good n positive for others n for ourself also; ultimately positive energy, positive vibes will come towards us. So this is the first n prime step for one.

  21. I feel respect and responsibility are the important pillars for living a meaningful and usefull life. Self-respect exhibits toughness and moral nerve. You will display strong character with the willingness to accept responsibility for your own life, and you’ll fight for your values and beliefs, no matter what.

  22. No doubt our thoughts plan our actions of future. So the first pillar is the strongest. Others too are important to build up a good character and a successful life. To build the pathway of our life, all the six are necessary and should be chosen carefully and thoughtfully to live a harmonious life.

  23. I am much agreeing to the Count No. 3 & 5, i.e. Responsibility and Caring, in one’s character building. One should have a dint of being responsibility in generating thoughts. For, as this cycle shows, our thoughts converts into word later words in actions. Caring attitude too requires to mold the character in a better way. One should give consideration to other’s sentiments also.

  30. Character is an aggregate of all these pillars and includes all of our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. Our character is much more than just our reputation.  Reputation is only what others to see and think about us. Our character is who we really are, even when no one is watching. Having good character means that you have such admirable traits as honesty, responsibility and courage.

  32. From all the mentioned points I think thoughts are most important as afterwards it becomes our words ,then actions and ultimately our future. If we want to brighten our future our thoughts must be clear we should not pinpoint the mistakes of others ,we should take a lesson and always try to improve ourselves.

  33. I think not even a single trait from these six can be ignored. You should be trustworthy, fair, responsible , respect others, show care and concern. The character of a person should be blend of all these traits. By having positive thinking, developing habits out of that thinking really builds the character. Purity of character is the asset of one’s life.

  38. Character building is a lifelong process. A person keeps on evolving his or her character throughout the life as the experiences are gained. There are many contours to one’s personality, but some important pillars according to me are: Trustworthiness, Respect and Caring Nature. If people can trust you it automatically shows that you are an honest, principled and truthful person. Respecting others is a very important part of building a good character. We should respect others’ knowledge, views, experiences, personal space, etc. Having caring nature helps us to be emphatic towards others, and that is also very important to build personality. Thus these three points are quite significant.

  39. All the above pillars are equally important for a meaningful and successful life. If we say that a particular pillar is important than that would be wrong because in today life it’s impossible to achieve success by having just one or two traits. So,according to me all the above traits are having important role in once life.

  40. All pillars are important but point 6 according to me is the most important.Life is full of choices. Being responsible means being in charge of our choices and, thus, our lives. It means being accountable for what we do and who we are. It also means recognizing that our actions matter and we are morally on the hook for the consequences.
    Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable, pursuing excellence and exercising self-restraint.ANd thats what I believe.

  42. In my standpoint sense of responsibility is the most important trait as if we see deeply all other traits are interconnectedness to this one. If we become responsible our habits get improved,we get respect, our thoughts become more clear and precise, we become trustworthy as natural as that .
