Strength is a choice

It is not easy to call upon your strength, and to develop even more. Yet it is possible, and accessible, and highly beneficial.

People advise you to be strong, and of course it’s easy for them to say, while difficult for you to do. Nonetheless, it’s good advice.

Strength begins on the inside, and what’s there inside is largely up to you. No matter how many resources, advantages and connections you do or do not have, you have access to your own strength.

Strength is a choice. It comes from your intentions, your values, your priorities, your commitment to yourself and others.

Certainly strength can be abused, but that doesn’t mean that strength itself is undesirable. It just means you must be careful and respectful with it.

Ask yourself what it will take to grow stronger inside, and seek to follow that path. Choose strength, and use it well.

— Ralph Marston
