Or, as my husband calls it, an extra gear.
It doesn’t matter what you call it, it is a trait we admire in others and desire in ourselves.
We often observe the strength in others when they face adversity and claim that we are not made of the same fiber. That we would not be able to handle the same.
You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.
But what if you could build up your inner strength? Develop your mental toughness before it’s thrown into the ring against the lions?
What if you could do calisthenics for your soul?
You can build that extra gear, develop that thicker skin that resists every arrow and train for adversity.
And you can do it all while remaining true to yourself and leading with compassion.
Life can be tough.
Learn to be tougher.
