Thought for the day 27th of April 2011
“Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in the muscles” by Alex Karras.
Young people want to be cool and tough. I believe everyone wants to be strong and able to defend himself. However, physical is only one type of strength that there are. And even it is usually not enough when we speak about hard physical work. There has to be an inner strength, strength of a character, strength of the mind, opinion, attitude in order for you to carry difficult tasks that require manual labor.
Take a guy who has built his muscles up and offer him something that tempts him a lot and see whether his muscles will help him to fight against the temptation. So, physical strength is one of the strengths that we need, but not the most important one. If you have a vision, purpose and determination to pursue those and doing all your best to achieve those, you belong to the narrow circle of the strongest people of the world. Most people simply drift aimlessly in the direction of the crowd without asking themselves where and why they are going where they are going. Don’t live like that. Set an aim to pursue, have a positive attitude to achieve it and do what you are supposed to do to turn your dream into reality.
