Quotes About Strength

It’s a funny thing, life.

We have a tendency to overestimate our own abilities while underestimating others. While the human mind excels at computations, it struggles to forecast our own potential.

When we need strength, however, we are more likely to look for it outside of ourselves. This can be found in spirituality or religion, in relationships, or simply in the words of others who have faced similar challenges before us.

The following quotes demonstrate how successful people have perceived strength throughout history. What you’ll see is that it’s their thinking and approach toward discovering the strength that might help them persevere in the face of adversity.

Tough times are unavoidable, and it’s a fact that many of us refuse to acknowledge. We can grow as humans and go on to push the boundaries and enjoy a deeper and more satisfying existence if we recognize that we are capable of doing so and are prepared in our attitudes and ideas.

You can discover a lot of strength in adversity.

And that’s exactly what happens when we face obstacles in life and approach them with the conviction that they can help us become more mentally robust.

That may be true in certain physical domains, though it would be argued by behavioural scientists that we underestimate our capacity for improvement. Psychological resilience, for example, is one area that is very flexible, and through training and therapy can be changed significantly. We often see strong people and believe they were always like that, but that’s cause we’re only seeing a snapshot of their life. If we saw all the moments they’d felt weak, we would understand that they’re very much human like us.
