Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strength. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

That is such a very true statement about all aspects of your lives.

Winning or succeeding all the time is not how you develop your strengths. Nor does it show you your weaknesses.

Strength comes from struggling with the various challenges that are presented to you and figuring out how to conquer them.

Strength is about testing your dedication, determination, and intelligence to make yourself stronger.

Each individual challenge or struggle you may have also helps you to see the beauty of life.

Choosing to avoid all challenges that come your way or to merely float through them if you can is a cowardly way out. Struggling is a part of life so we can appreciate all the good things that come our way. There will be a balance. There never is such a thing as all suffering or all bliss.

You either have strength or you have to teach yourself strength but either way it is your decision to be strong. No one can take that away from you.
