If you can relate to these questions, it’s highly likely you desire to develop a strong personality.
- Have you craved to be strong and looked in awe at those who gain the respect of others easily?
- Are you tired of getting ignored when hanging out with other people?
- Are you speechless when someone talks down to you or pushes in the line in front of you?
Most “strong” people wear a mask
Interestingly, a lot of the people you see thrusting their weight around do so because of the need to appear strong. The truth is they fear others will control, manipulate and disrespect them if they operate as their true selves. So to counter their fears, these inwardly weak individuals self protect themselves by becoming bullies or controlling, manipulative people – all so they can feel powerful.
True strength comes from the inside
The fact is that true strength cannot come from aggressive or pushy actions. It only comes from having a healthy level of self confidence. People who are truly strong are comfortable with who they are.
Becoming strong doesn’t happen overnight – it’s a process. This process deals directly with increasing self esteem and self identity.
Below are some tips on how to have a strong character:
- Fear no-one
- Use your pain to make you stronger
- Get up when you fall
- Refuse self pity
