Developing Inner Strength-Part 7

Don’t ask why but rather what.

Too often when we are faced with challenges or trials we ask why this happened to me or why now. These are natural responses but the truth is, to develop inner strength, you need to be able to ask the question what.

What can I learn from this experience?

What can I do to make it better?

What can I do for someone else?

What do I need to do get back on my feet?

These are not easy questions to answer when things are going good so asking them when you are being challenged or in the midst of trial is even more difficult. However, having the ability to ask and answer these types of questions will help you develop inner strength. One of the important things is that as you learn from these types of experiences you will be prepared for future situations that will come to your life. Another important item is that others will come to you when they encounter similar challenges and trials because they will see the inner strength you demonstrated and you will be prepared to help them.

Heroes learn how ask what and in doing so build great inner strength. When they do this, they can than influence so many others in a positive way. Through that influence, they will help others find their inner hero and the Ripple Effect becomes unstoppable.

Go be a hero TODAY!

Developing Inner Strength-Part 6

Press forward with determination

I absolutely love this quote by the great coach and legend Vince Lombardi, “the difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” As you ponder those words, you cannot help but feel the power of determination. We are all going face challenges and setbacks in our life. For those that find the inner strength and determination to press forward, they will see great blessings enter their life.

As you look at those people you admire most, I would venture a guess that one of the characteristics they have is determination. They are successful in some way and that success did not come easy. They had to apply themselves, work hard and do the things that that would lead them to their goals. It is that determination to act and make it happen that sets them apart. You deserve to find that determination and then make great things happen. A hero never sits around waiting for someone else to get things done. A hero never sits around and gives up when the road gets bumpy. A hero takes a determined attitude, sets the course then presses forward to make great things happen. That is one of the keys to building and maintaining inner strength.

Be a hero today.
