Lessons from the day I walked to work.
To know the source of your strength is to know happiness and peace. Joy and frustration come from our thoughts and choices.
Say this to yourself, I choose to let go of frustrations and to say no to denial.
Amid a difficult situation, there is great power within you, power to generate the strength you need to overcome any challenge.
How do you get to know the source of your strength? The answer to this question lies in the choices that we make.
It is time to change the thoughts that we think and the words that we speak.

- 6 Internal Sources Of Strength For Leaders To Develop.
Thoughts are so powerful; if you think and say, “I am weak,” the feeling of being vulnerable will drive-in, and you will become exactly that.
The best way to determine the source of your strength is through self-knowledge. Below are some of the steps to take in your journey to self-discovery.
1. Spending ten minutes a day in quietness.
The number one tip for developing some level of inner strength is to spend about ten minutes each day in quietness. During this time, try not to worry about what you have not accomplished or what you should have done. Just be quiet.
The best time to harness this extraordinary power is in the morning when it is peaceful and quiet.
Remaining quiet for a few minutes each day helps you to develop mental strength and prepares you to face the day with boldness.
The Japanese martial arts call it “YOGA”; they use it to develop mental strength.
2. Bless your day.
The Bible says, “This is the day that the Lord has made that we will rejoice and be glad in it,” commit your day unto the Lord, and believe that He is helping, providing, and guiding you at all time.
Each day has its unique blessings, and until we realize this fact, we can start tapping into benefits. Say these words to yourself each morning: I am strong, I am healthy, I am successful, I am confident.
That relationship either makes you stronger or breaks you. The people you surround yourself with determines your mental power. You must have heard that “Birds of the same feathers flock together.”
If you hung around weak people, you would automatically be one of them, and there is no doubt about that. The people that you choose to be around will either affect you negatively or positively.
Friends are imperative in so many ways, and with friends, we can either succeed or fail. Choose your friends wisely, because everyone who comes into our life has something to teach you.
Mark Manson said, “Self-improvement and success occur together.” You build mental strength as you constantly and persistently looking for ways to improve yourself.
Finding something important and meaningful in your life is the most productive way to use your energy and time. Self-improvement is a good step to finding your strength.
5. Stop personalizing issues.
There is no such thing as a personal issue. If you are going through a challenge, chances are thousands of other people have gone through it in the past, and others are yet to go through the same challenge.
The accurate measure of mental strength is not how you feel about a positive experience but rather how you react to a negative experience.
If you know what makes you strong, you will never waste time meddling in things or situations that bring worries to your life.
