These philosophers are in agreement that what your actions are, whether in public or private, speak to your character. It isn’t what you think or say that is most important; it is the actions you take, especially when no one is looking. So the question is: Do you act in alignment with the values in public as well as when no one is looking? Have you practiced them until they were etched into your very being? And just what values hold the most character power anyhow? Which can we count on as “power virtues” which when burned into your character make you more powerful in life? This is highly subjective, but I will offer you my top six power virtues in this new blog series. They will provide fodder for a lifetime of work on your path to self-mastery.
