Patience is the father of all characters. The elder who has patience has all good things. Experience has shown me that people demonstrate a range of character traits. As you age, endure hardship and enjoy blessings, your character will develop, transform and manifest in different ways. Your greatest imaginable challenge is to recognize and embrace your character as you grow into it.
Sounds easy enough. But the inside joke is this; people like to play it safe and protect ourselves. So, we tend to seek familiarity, which does not challenge us to really test ourselves. When was the last time you deliberately thrust yourself out of your comfort zone to do something foreign? So, for most people character lessons tend to come packaged in a situation wherein you lose control and are forced to become vulnerable. This is the essence of initiation. You must lose the ego in order to gain the soul.
