Just as your inner strength can affect your outer beauty through confidence, it can also affect your outer strength. There are different types of strength, of course – mental confidence and physical power.
With both of these, your inner stores of strength and confidence will play an important role. How you present yourself to others and what you’re able to physically achieve can be determined by your belief in yourself.
When things happen that are outside your control – a car wreck, a pink slip at work – it’s your inner strength that can help you deal with these outside factors.
You have two ways that you react to whatever happens.
There’s the inner you – which can have private thoughts and emotions based on what’s happened. And there’s the public you which can project a calm, cool and collected person that’s in control of the situation.
Take the scenario of the car wreck – a fender bender. The inner strength you possess is what will affect the outer self who has to deal with the other driver. A lack of inner strength would mean you jump out of the car and either yell or cry during the situation.
A full tank of inner strength means you calmly ask for the other driver’s insurance, make the appropriate calls, and get through the situation with ease. You’re making life easier on yourself (and others) because of that inner strength you possess.
How can you achieve inner strength so that you can deal with situations like these? Part of the key to your success lies in learning stress relief measures. This keeps your inner strength stores filled at all times.
Aside from the mental outer strength you need to portray, you have physical outer strength to build up. That can also be achieved through the process of tapping into your inner strength.
When you’re in the gym trying to achieve a better physique – one that provides health and beauty for you – you have to call on your inner strength to get through the routines you’re doing.
Whenever there’s one last set to get through, it can be hard. Your physical stamina isn’t what will help you complete it. It’s the inner strength you possess that reminds you that you do have it in you to complete the process.
Think of all of your strength as something that burns from the inside-out. It starts deep within you and as you need it in life, it leaks out, encasing you like a protective covering. Just know that even though it’s there waiting for you, you have to actually put it to use and call upon it for it to work.
