How strong are you?
That is a tough question to answer, whether you are a man or a woman.
But, really, I want to ask… how do you define your strength?
How do you know your limits? How do you know just how much you’ve got?
When push comes to shove, we often discover that we are much stronger than we think.
What is Strength?
Strength is not always about pure physical strength. Rather, it is about willpower. Discipline. Drive. It is about the capacity to get things done.
I know some people who are intellectually strong, but they get very little done in their jobs. And I know others who find work extremely challenging, but are able to move mountains by their sheer drive and hard work.
They possess inner strength.
More interesting, is that these productive hard-workers often don’t even notice the load. Bystanders are not only amazed, but often ask, “How do you do it?”
The answer usually comes back, “I just work harder than the others.”
So, why are some people able to do more? What gives them added drive? What gives them extra strength?
Could it be, they have simply given themselves permission to do more?
