The direction of strength

It’s helpful to visualize strength as something that flows only in a positive, creative direction. When you go along in the same direction, your strength increases. When you move in the other direction, whatever strength you have will quickly disappear.

Apply your strength toward positive and productive ends, and that strength grows. Use your strength for destructive purposes, and you’ll see that strength drained away.

Are you going in a direction that’s making you stronger? Or are you struggling against the current of your own positive possibilities? When you feel yourself losing strength, it’s time to reconsider your direction.

Turn toward excellence. Turn toward goodness, integrity, and accomplishment. Turn toward being the best you can be, and feel your strength grow with each passing day.

— Ralph Marston
