First of all let us start by looking at the four basic things to have in mind for us to be able to identify and even developing the inner strength that we have. Some very first and initial factors to consider and think about before we start to build the inner strength:
Strength is the opposite of violence
It’s evident that most people tend to act aggressively out of protection. Whenever someone have a feeling that is like they are not strong to resolve a difficult situation, violence and hostility follows as a way to put off the others, and thus avoiding real disagreement of the conflict. Take an example of people you think and consider to be very strong. They don’t need to act forcefully because they feel to have power to take control of the situation and bring it to a stop. And hence it seems that aggressiveness is a means of covering ones weakness.
Mental and physical strength are one
Scientifically proven that lack of a few day of sleep can make you psychologically resilient and break down mentally. Physical and mental strength work in synergy and they feed each other to make a strong individual, and also the reverse is true being physically dormant and out of shape can make one lack the inner strength and vice versa, since the two are never separated.
Know your natural strengths
We were are born with some unique skills and capabilities, and hence to build one’s strength is to observe these skills and work forward to develop them. Mental muscle, there has been important study done in the past on identifying the natural strengths. That concludes that first identify what your ordinary strengths are, and then start working to improve them more, and to avoid focusing your yourself on whatever you think you are good at but try to know something about yourself that you didn’t know.
Mental strength is hard to follow
Obviously it’s much easy to notice physical changes in strength that are things like some weight is lost, breathing becomes easier after running a short distance and muscles toned . But It’s very hard to notice variations in mental strengths, for example when you lose your anger so easily and notice changes in the way people respond to your actions.
And therefore building your inner strength is a lifelong activity and with time you adapt and becomes a habit to you and part of your identity. Having known that, secret to a strong mind is self- consciousness let us shift to the ways we can build our inner strength, which are the way ahead toward this, here are three thriving ways to help you develop up your inner strength:
1.Find your strengths
As we have said above it is important to be observing and alert to others response to your actions, It is obviously hard to develop your strengths unless you know what really they are. You can start by easily going after the thing that attract and draws your interest and then find the solution to these 4 questions;
- After how long did it take to accomplish the activity?
- Did I do it properly and how it left me feeling pleased?
- Has it been time-consuming and leave me exhausted?
- Did I get so engrossed that I lost focus of time?
This might take your time but the dominant strength will just appear. Once you find them, you will be able to sharpen them, and this will set your start to building a strong inner strength.
2.Admit your weaknesses
Weakness is to be managed but not changed, once you have realize any weakness in you have any way possible to develop proficiency with it, that is by devoting all the abilities, energy and yourself to the same to fix and manage them.
3.Reinforce Your Strong Points
The main reason and purpose for this is the more you practiced on the strong point you know, the more sure you will be when confronted by the real situation of the same type out, and this brings us to this concern that for any skill to be an inner strength then persistence must be the key factor. Therefore spend much time developing on your strong points, not on strengthening the weak points.
