Your reputation can be damaged by the opinions of others. Only you yourself can damage your character. Says E. C. McKenzie.
And how right he is. Reputation is what people perceive you to be whether they are wrong or not and honestly, it doesn’t matter. May I suggest that you and I should work on our character and then our reputation will take care of itself.
Why is character important? Simply because many people have risen to their level of success because of their talents and skills and then they eventually fall because of their character.
