Inner Strength

“The strength of your mind determines the quality of your life.”
Edmond Mbiaka

It is easy to notice changes in physical strength: muscles are toned, and breathing becomes easier after running a short distance. It is much harder to notice differences in mental strength, and sometimes it simply helps to stop and think: have you been losing your temper less often? Are you noticing a change in the way people respond to you? How do you feel when you open your eyes in the morning?

.
You can choose to be a decisive will from within, to harness that power of decisiveness, and choose to be your strongest self.

.
Make agreements you know you can keep. Be on time. You will show yourself to be a reliable person. Renegotiate agreements you cannot keep. You will know yourself as being trustworthy.

.
Learn to say “No”. Do not over-commit yourself. Refusing a request is not against anyone else. You are being honest with, and true to yourself.

.
We never know what good is right around the next corner. Keep an open and receptive mind.

.
Building inner strength is a life long task. As we grow stronger mentally, it will pay off in many ways, it will become habit, and eventually a part of our identity. Be strong!

“Attitude is 100% under your control – (yours to choose, use or lose, as they say). Happiness, fulfillment and satisfaction in a life ALWAYS and ONLY come as a consequence of some other activity. That is you don’t just create ‘happy’ or ‘satisfied’ – you have to be doing something with your life that as a byproduct creates these states.”
Martin Gover
