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.
