    I will save this to review again and again to remind me when I am feeling really weak. Thank you. I do think this will be of good help.

    Ryan, there’s a spiritual discipline in Judaism called “Musar” (moo-sahr). Very similar to the Ben Franklin idea of systematically working on character strengths. I was in a Musar group a few years ago, but at the time I had other issues and could not stick with it. Books referenced in Wikipedia: “Everyday Holiness” (2007) by Alan Morinis and “A Responsible Life” (2007) by Rabbi Ira F. Stone. Also see: madregal.com.

    Sonja, I’m glad you found this post helpful. Your idea to read it over and over could be a great way to boost one or more of your strengths!

    That’s very interesting, Elaine. I’ve not heard of Musar. Does the practice of Musar involve the systematic building of specific strengths and virtues? If so, which ones? Or, does it allow the individual to choose which virtues to work with? What did you like about that process?

    Great ideas for keeping consciousness around being and becoming our best selves.
