Strength, to me boils down to not letting any obstacles defeat you..we must get right back up n shake it off asap. Life is beautiful!!! Only ourselves can make us happy!! Gotta stay strong & positive in spite of it all...keep on trucking people!!!! ;)

Strength is not just a measurement of one's physical power but a measurement of one's personal determination, Strength is the ability to take hits towards your self and even if you may be knocked down as a result, strength determines one's abilities to not only get back up and brush off the blow, but to also keep pushing against the force that sought to bring you down.

Sean A Burrell from Plano Tx MARCH 28, 2011
If you want to have strength you have to exercise, and keep practicing.
