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!!!! ;)

"A weak man is not as happy as the same man would be if he were strong." -Mark Rippetoe
Austin Bray, Murray, Ky

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.
Logan, Kent, WA

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