The Character Sherpa

What is The Character Sherpa?

June 23, 2022 - Post #001

Hello, and welcome to The Character Sherpa blog where we will be discussing all things character related - assessment, development, good and poor examples in athletes and anywhere else we see issues or examples of excellent character, benefiting a diverse audience across our readers, no matter your age or gender.

All of our content is and will always be family friendly.

A sherpa is a mountain climbing guide in the country of Nepal. Climbers of Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth that is not in an ocean, need experienced guides when climbing such a steep and treacherous mountain. Sherpas have climbed Everest and other Himalayan peaks and they know the way. 

I have climbed the mountain of character and have made a dramatic transformation of my character which allows me to show you the way to having excellent character and being a leader for your sports team which makes me The Character Sherpa.


My character transformation is a story with the realization that I had a lot of potential and wasn’t meeting it which triggered my saying to myself in May 1999, “let’s see what makes Patrick tick.”

When I began, I had no idea where it would take me or how long it would take to get there. It has taken me over 20 years now, but I wasn’t going anywhere important until I met Jesus Christ in 2003. Despite encountering Jesus on my journey, it still took me another 16 years to connect all the dots in my story to get where I am today (and still growing - forever). It was in January 2019 that everything came together to take a major leap forward in my transformation, a transformation that has allowed me to begin pouring into the lives of others and help them on their character development or character transformation journey!

So, what’s your story? You may not even know, but you can start to figure it all out here at The Character Sherpa, your guide to raising your character to a level of excellence!

Let’s start right here: Always be honest! You may need to soften your honesty so as not to hurt someone with your honesty, but always be honest. You’ll be glad you did. When you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything. Think about that for a while...
