What is Strength?
Strength can be defined as mental power, force, or vigor. Also, moral power, firmness, or courage.
Some synonyms for strength are enduringness, fortitude, tenacity, and resilience.
There are many different synonyms, examples, and classifications of strength. Physical strength, personal strength, professional and mental, just to name a few. The numbers and types of strength may be too lengthy and outside the scope of this simple blog post. In an article found on PositivePsychology.com, a list was presented outlining ninety-two personal strengths. For example, some of the strengths mentioned include adaptability, endurance, dependability, creativity, curiosity, bravery, kindness, leadership, teamwork, forgiveness, gratitude, and spirituality.
You may have heard of SWOT analysis. A business approach to identify a company’s internal strengths and weaknesses and external opportunities and threats. This type of analysis can also be applied on a personal level to explore one’s abilities or performance and find ways to improve.
On a lighter side, you may have heard of people referring to their strengths as their superpowers, likening themselves to superheroes with superhuman abilities. That’s perfectly acceptable to do.
Take some time to contemplate. What does strength mean to you? Who do you know that exhibits strength? What strengths come to your mind? What are your superpowers?
Peace, Love & Strength
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”
“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
“Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Focus on your character, not your reputation. Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes.”
