Life is a Rainbow
My son is now an adult. He is beginning a new chapter in his life with a new wife and new baby. I wanted to leave something for my son and grandson that would help them become the men God has called them to be. The words of this book came from inside my heart. I want my son to know he can have everything life has to offer. Life is so hard, especially when you don't realize God is there to help guide you and instruct you. The pages of this book contain all the wisdom, experience, and knowledge I have gained over the years from being a daughter, a wife, a mother and a friend. I want to pass whatever knowledge I have gained in my life to my son to help make his life just a little bit easier and a whole lot more happier.
However, this book isn't simply for my son. Any man, whether single, married, widowed, divorced, young, old, with children or without children, can gain knowledge and understanding about being a complete man of excellence. Being a man of excellence isn't who you are, or what you do. Having success or fame doesn't guarantee you will be a man of excellence. That is attained by what you have inside. Being a man of excellence is achieved by what is in your mind and spirit. Read the book and realize you have the power to be anything you want to be and can do anything God as called you to do. You have everything you need right inside yourself, simply learn how to bring it out and make your life excel with greatness.
One of the most important key elements to becoming a man of excellence is to be a man of integrity. By having integrity, you will be revered by others. Integrity means you have character. People will look up to you and be assured that you are someone they can count on. A man of integrity is a true leader. If you are a man of integrity, you are honest, you are fair with individuals, and you have upstanding morals and values. You can be trusted. You do what is right even when no one is watching. Having integrity allows you to be considerate of others. You want to be honest in your work, with your family and friends, and with total strangers. A man of integrity holds true to his values and is not swayed by circumstances. He is not a hypocrite, saying one thing and doing another. A man of integrity is accountable for his own actions and does not evade responsibility. He is able to attain success in everything he does by having ethics and perseverance. He does not worry about what others think or say about him. He does what he knows is right. A man of integrity is authentic. He is true to himself. He does not put up a front for others. He does not take the easy way out or try to get to the top by walking over people or stabbing them in the back. He is loyal and trustworthy to the best of his ability. A man of integrity is reliable and people have confidence in him. No one on this earth is perfect. Try as you might, you and everyone else will always make mistakes, but you have the ability to strive for perfection; to not settle for where you are, but always endeavor to be the best you can be. When you do your absolute best, your integrity shows through. Remember too that you can strive for perfection without being arrogant or proud, or coming off as being better than others. There is no one person better than another. We are all the same. However, by living a life of integrity, you are setting your standards higher than someone else might choose to do. There will be times when you will falter and make mistakes. Just don’t beat yourself up over those times. Use those mistakes as stepping stones that will help you to grow in spirit and wisdom. When your time on this earth is done, you want to be remembered for what you gave back to this world, not how much the world gave to you. This world owes you nothing. You owe the world the best that you can offer. A man of integrity makes a difference in the world. You want to be remembered as having made the world a better place for you having been here.
