‘If you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you are right’ Henry Ford
So what is it that you tell yourself everyday? The thoughts you think, the words you speak, do they stir up strength in you or do they make you lose confidence in the strength you have.
Strength is the ability to see, believe in and use a greater force, this force is a weapon in your hand, which helps you overcome in any and every situation, it is not just enough to have this strength in you, you have to use it, to win in any hopeless situation, and constant wielding of this force, makes you big, irrespective of your physical stature and that, my friend is what matters most.
A person with physical strength can only go so far, but the person with an inner strength may be temporarily deterred because of the lack of physical strength, but with time and perseverance, he will go farther than the man who relies on his physical strength alone, but if you have the physical strength and have cultivated your inner strength, then, great are you!
An old American Indian tale recounts the story of a chief who was telling a gathering of young braves about the struggle within. “It is like two dogs fighting inside of us,” the chief told them. “There is one good dog who wants to do the right and the other dog always wants to do the wrong.

“Who is going to win in the end?” a young brave asks and the chief answered, “The one you feed.
‘There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them’ – Denis Waitley
It is the person of strength who perseveres and continues even when it seems nothing is going right, be sure that with this strength, comes determination, with the determination, comes courage, with courage comes perseverance, and with this perseverance, comes triumph and success. A brave man is not one who does not have fear, but one who can do the right thing and forges ahead in the face of fear, the one good thing about fear is that it teaches us who we are. Without fear, we wouldn’t know what we are made of, you have to find courage in your strength.
The strength and resolve you have in you, your stubborn faith, can wear down any trouble or challenge, it may take a while but remember that you are designed to always be the last man standing, so don’t you dare give up because you are more stubborn than anything that you may face.
