Be Strong

Only strong personalities can endure history, the weak ones are extinguished by it. (Friedrich Nietzsche)

———————————-

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough. (Og Mandino)

Strong – Especially able, competent, or powerful in a specific field or respect. Powerful in influence, authority, resources, or means of prevailing or succeeding. Of great force, effectiveness, potency, or cogency; compelling.

What Does Quote #1 Mean?

To me, it means you have to be strong, IF YOU WANT TO SURVIVE. Weak people; weak ideas, get pushed back and buried all the time. It’s only natural.

Only the strong will survive. If you want to survive, you have to be strong.

If you want to achieve LASTING weight loss, you have to be strong.

I wish that was not the case, but I learned a long time ago to NOT argue with reality. And face it, that is part of reality.

As I said before, only the strong will survive.

If you want to survive, you have to be strong.

If you want to achieve LASTING weight loss, you have to be strong.

What Does Quote #2 Mean?

Quite simply, it means that you will NEVER, EVER, EVER fail, if your determination is strong enough.

That is such an important point that more of us need to learn.

Strength will persevere. We have to maintain our strength. We have to build our strength. If we do so, we have the strength to prevail over virtually anything.

So What’s The Point?

We must have a strong determination to succeed!

That’s the whole point here. We have to decide that we are going to succeed no matter what.

Why?

It’s because life is going to beat us up. Circumstances are going to beat us up. Stuff is going to happen. No matter how strong we are. No matter how determined we are. Stuff IS going to happen.

That’s not the issue here.

The issue is not whether stuff is going to happen to us. The issue is what are we going to do as a result of the stuff that happens.

Let me repeat.

Stuff is going to happen to us. That’s one of the few things I can be 100% certain about. The trick that successful people have mastered is that they have developed the strength to deal with that stuff.

Successful people are strong enough to deal with the stuff that happens.

People who WILL achieve LASTING weight loss will have to be strong enough to deal with the stuff that happens.

Now do you see why I believe strength is so important?

Until next time, may you find your path by walking it . . .

About The Author

As his 50th birthday grew nearer, Stanley decided enough was enough. He was tired of living a life of obesity.

Since February 2009, Stanley has dropped from a weight of 320 pounds to the mid-190s.  He has gone from a life of inactivity to walking a half-marathon daily and full marathons on many weekends.

His latest book in what he calls his “iWarriorWalk Pathfinder Series” is designed to help people ask (and answer) key questions about themselves.  Stanley believes that the only way We The People of the United States are going to solve our problems (especially the growing problem of obesity) is by asking the right questions and by coming up with appropriate answers.

Through Foundation EON, he hopes to help you (and America) do just that.
