Making the right decisions in life is tough. Most of us are tempted to take the shortcut, the easy way out whenever we can, but true long-lasting happiness is a journey, not a destination. To live a truly honorable life is to enjoy the respect of peers, friends, and family who recognize the value of our enduring integrity. The nobility of this aspect of our character is a worthwhile quality that sets us apart from the crowd. There are companies out there like 7Seventh watches that have chosen the more challenging path and adhere to a principle and chase and idea until they realize positive results; in this case, luxurious, handcrafted wooden watches. Read on to understand why living a noble, honorable existence is a life-long quest that leads to happiness and success and how you can do it in style with a quality wooden watch on your wrist.
If there is one thing in this world that is hugely valued by any and all individuals, it’s your reputation. You can change your habits and practices, and you can learn and grow and develop yourself, but when your reputation is damaged, there is very little you can do to repair it. Because of this, having your word as your bond is your best presentation card. Let´s look at some examples of why being of noble character can open doors in life, while the alternative can end your career.
There are two ways of achieving nobility: You can either be born into it, or you can foster nobility in your character as a valued quality. We are going to take a look at the latter - being noble in character.
Being noble in character is to consistently display integrity. This consistency is important because it underlines the fact that the nobility of your behavior or actions will be judged at the level of the weakest link. This sets apart those who are genuinely noble from those who are just a facsimile; a poser who presents a noble face to the world while thinking and doing the exact opposite behind the facade.
Nobility is reflected in every action we take because it is all about integrity. This type of behavior is partly dictated by your upbringing but also by your ability to face the challenges that life presents. If you are a noble and virtuous person, you will usually be able to cope with life´s most difficult moments with integrity and without resorting to inappropriate actions and shortcuts. For example, people of noble character who are facing financial difficulties will never resort to something like stealing or any similar unsavory practice of that kind. Noble people who act with honor and integrity will take the difficult road and put in that extra effort to turn the situation around and make the most of it. This is because nobility, integrity, and honor come from within and reveal themselves in the most difficult of circumstances and not the other way around. The more extremely adverse the situation we face, the more likely our true colors will show through. Being honorable is to be it all the time, not just when the time is right and is easy to do it.
Not only are nobility and integrity the key drivers of most actions, but they also anchor character. This is because they are fundamental to the way you address issues and the way you interact with others. If you have nobility as the core anchor to your character, you are demonstrating that you are someone who epitomizes consistent ethical conduct. For example, when it is clear that integrity is one of your characteristic traits then your co-workers will know exactly what to expect from you and how to treat you on a daily basis. People who carry their personal problems to work or are unpredictable in terms of moodiness and temperament clearly lack that nobility characteristic and hence fall in the estimation of those around them.
Because of the importance of honor as a central value in our daily lives, the people at 7Seventh have created the ÁXIOS watch. This quality timepiece is made of precious sandalwood and the craftsmanship is analogous with the importance of honor as a core value in our lives.
Apart from the quality of the timepiece itself, the very act of wearing it on a daily basis exudes your nobility and integrity. Being bold enough to be different without being afraid of what other people will say is not being a poser or a show-off but is about you being a ‘real’ person who is prepared to step out and take chances in support of your core beliefs. Wearing a 7Seventh ÁXIOS on your left wrist will be a constant reminder of how honor should be evident in your every action but should also be a demonstration of how much you care for the environment and the future of our planet.
Wearing a the ÁXIOS wooden watch demonstrates to those around you that you dare to be different and also that you are committed to a better world for generations to come. If you choose to walk the more challenging pathway, exposing your core values in the most extreme situations yet retaining your nobility and integrity, then you will undoubtedly achieve success. It is often said that “The best things await the brave one step beyond the walls of their own comfort zone.” Going back to the prime example of a company like 7Seventh, they could have utilized their investment capital to create any other kind of product; they could have targeted some popular existing product range, may be manufactured in large quantities at a reasonable cost in China, with disposable materials, but they didn’t. They took the long and challenging path of being different from the norm and they achieved amazing results.
Underpinning every action with your core values is, for many, the definition of honor. Everything we do should be steeped in our integrity; will you sport your 7Seventh ÁXIOS with nobility and style on your pathway to success?
