Your Virtue is your core identity — that which resides at the very center of who God made you to be. The better you understand what your Virtue is, the more effectively you’ll be able to create the life you are meant to live.
There are 9 Virtues in all. Our previous post spoke about the first three. In today’s post, we’ll discuss the next three.
1. Knowledge. This Virtue deals with a sense of understanding and a thirst for wisdom. A person whose Virtue is knowledge cherishes truth and seeks it out wherever it may be found –in books, in life experiences, in the classroom, in the world.
2. Self-Control. Self-control is a sense of power and yearning for being present. While many think of “self-control” in terms of avoiding bad habits, this virtue goes much, much deeper than that. It is about understanding the power one possesses within to subdue and call into order those things that are in chaos and disarray, whether internally or externally, while living each moment fully as it comes.
3. Perseverance. Perseverance is a sense of achievement and a drive for excellence. People whose Virtue is perseverance are willing to walk through fire to achieve their objectives. They are dissatisfied with mediocrity and crave the feeling of satisfaction that comes from knowing they have done their best.
Remember: not everyone is given each of the Virtues. And though you may have elements of several, everyone has one Virtue that is dominant. You shouldn’t try to force or live into one that isn’t yours. Usually, it takes the help of an objective third-party — a coach or a mentor — to help you determine which is your Virtue and what that means for your life going forward.
