Strength Does Not Come From Winning But From…



All successful and well doing men have something in common. Their success is grounded on strength-the foundation upon which they have built their empires and glory.

Even the great Kings and Emperors who were able to hold their Kingdoms and Empires together for substantial number of years had the all important trace of strength. Without strength, success will never be achieved.

If our success is dependent on our strength, would it therefore not be prudent that we clearly understand and acknowledge the source of our strength? After all, without it, we will never realize our desire success.

Despite the importance of strength in achieving success, the very people who are bent on obtaining success always misplace the source of strength. Most of us do not achieve the success we desire because we lack the strength needed to obtain it.

Those who are smart enough to acknowledge the role strength plays in achieving success also focus on the wrong source. Therefore, they are never able to gather the required strength needed to gravitate towards success.

The commonly existing misconception about strength is, many are of the view that our strength comes from winning. I have heard several people saying, ‘they get stronger the more they win or their strength comes from winning’. Wrong… In fact, you somehow get weaker the more you win.

The incongruent relationship between strength and winning was well noted by Mahatma Gandhi who brilliantly captured it as “Strength does not come from winning. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”

This is the greatest secret to gravitate towards success and yet many of us have been getting it wrong. People like Ghandi who got it right had all the success they wanted.

As you start a new day in your life, acknowledge the brawny relationship between hardship and strength and get rid of the fallacy between winning and strength. It is the hardships you go through that will fetch you success and not the winnings you gather.
