There are a lot of characteristic for a person, for example, honesty, intelligence, a sense of humor and so on. However, personally, I think honesty is the most important characterisetic that a person can have to be successful in life. The reasons are as below.
Honesty means two parts for the characteristic. One is honesty to the person itself; another is honesty to others. First, be honesty to the person itself. In my opinion, this is the most most important thing for a person. If someone were doing something which he/ she thinks it is wrong, it will not be successful because people can lie to everybody but themselves. If someone lies to himself/ herself, he/ she will not be successful. This is a universal truth. we do not need to prove it.
Second, be honesty to others. This point is basiced on to be honesty to person itself. If a person can be honesty to himself/ herself, he/ she may be honesty to others, may be not, but if he/ she can not be honesty to himself/ herself, he/she must not be honesty to others. The reason is the person can not even be honesty, how can be expected to be honesty to others. If a person can be honesty to others, other people must trust this guy. If a person can get other people`s trust, he/ she get a half success. Another half is basiced on this guys hard work.
In conclusion, honesty is the important characteristic for people`s success. Honesty to themselves and honesty to others is the basic tools.
