    Your character is shaped by your family and others around you. It is also influenced by your experiences in life and your values.
    Family members are often the first teachers of character. Through their words and actions, they help you develop your own values. For example, your family may volunteer to help others in need. This teaches you to be a good citizen. You also learn responsibility at home. Doing chores or helping younger siblings with homework teaches responsibility. Being kind and helpful are ways that family members show they care about each other.
    As you grow older, you learn from experience. Sports and games teach the importance of fairness and of following rules. At school you learn responsibility. You are responsible for getting your work done and in on time. School also teaches respect for authority.

    Every thought we think creates an impression in our mind. These thought impressions are known as ‘Samsakras’. When we nurture these samsakaras with feelings and sensations, they become transformed into our Beliefs. These beliefs are subsequently developed into our habits and character.

    Change is the fundamental nature of our mind. Thought changes every moment and new characters are created. Thoughts are energy which never die without producing its result. So always think good, if you want to develop a good character.

    For me, there three factors that influence the individual's character. The first one is his own family. The way his parents, brothers, and sisters treat him is a great influence on his character development. If his family practices good manners and right conduct, he is more likely to possess that.

    The second is the community where he lives. This may include his school, his government, his neighbor. What is being taught in school, he acquires it and follows it. What his government is imposing the rules and regulations, and ordinances, he has to keep them. And his neighbor's behavior, their way of life may likely influence him.

    And the last is the Church. The spirituality, the love of God, the love of his fellowmen, and the service to others in for Christ's sake may constitute his overall character building.
