Strength doesn’t come from what you can do it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.
Real strength doesn’t lie in the man that can run the fastest, real strength lies in the man that can run the fastest for the longest amount of time.
In place of the mindset of trying to be the fastest sprinter, in reference to life we should try and be the best marathon runner that we may possibly be. We must be able to endure pain after pain, struggle after struggle, and hardship after hardship. We must make use of what limited supplies we have, until we are blessed with an abundance of tools to make this world a better place.
Not everything in life happens as swiftly as we may like it to, especially success. Keep pushing, fight through the pain and the adversity, become the best you so that you may use this strength to help strengthen others! Hang on when you feel like quitting, and remember that there is only failure when you stop continuing to try.
