    By always striving to be a better person than you think you are.

    That you are questioning whether or not you are a good person probably means that you are, indeed, a good person. Bad people don't usually question their personal moral and ethical actions.

    Always try my best to do what I feel is right. Giving a helping hand in time of need for a friend.

    Being 'good' means you have a good working moral compass that you choose to follow.  Good people are defined by their actions. Actions could include things like:

    1) When you find yourself putting other people first
    2) When people say they can trust you
    3) When you feel compelled to "do the right thing"
    4) When you have compassion for others
    5) When you make decisions you know you will have no regrets about


    Usually you can trust your own judgement by the feelings in your heart.

    A good person is the one whose faith is based on the philosophy of the everlasting 'Truth'.
    Because, the Moral Philosophy or Behaviorism should come out automatically from the person's faith.

    I know because:
    My friends tell me that I'm a good person.
    I feel that I'm a good person.  I feel that my actions and my beliefs
    about the world are good. etc...........

    - When I come to sleep, I sleep easily that I didn't harm someone, or at least I did not mean it.
    - When I do mistake, I feel free to apologize.
    - I like to give more than to take.

    But sure I feel shame that I get angry fast, but I do my best to control myself.

    When I review my day and have nothing that I would change, I know I have acted with kindness and love towards others. I believe it takes constant vigilance. I have a checklist that I fill out at the end of each day.
    I hope to be a person that I would enjoy being friends/lovers with. Do unto others.

    I feel best when I am able to help others and to bring a smile to someones face.

    It was not always so. It is easy to get caught up in selfishness and become self centered.

    the things i do show that i'm a good person. many people will say nice things or do nice things that get them noticed .when a person does things without really thinking about it and they expect no reward, then they are good people.

    Good is a matter of perspective. You know you are a good person if you can be satisfied with your actions and consider yourself bettering yourself, society and your fellow man. The problem is, good for some people is bad for others. I think peace and some social, fiscal and ecological discretion are good traits, but some people don't think so. Ex: During WWII FDR must of thought himself a good person for leading the world on a crusade to end tyranny in Germany, but there must have been part of Hitler who thought he was a good person for eradicating the Jews from his population and, in his mind, bettering society (mind you, I think he was a horrible man whose actions are beyond deplorable, it's just a point of comparison on subjectivity). I'm pretty sure 99% of you who read this will agree with me that FDR was the good man and Hitler was the polar opposite of good, but it is a point to consider in terms of what actually defines a "good" person in the study of ethics.

    Because I don't get the repeat of negative consequences that comes along with being bad.
