When you find the strength within, your perspective shifts drastically. You are no longer scared of what tomorrow might hold in store for you, because you’ve got a warrior within, and you can take all the storms head-on. You start seeing the world a bit differently, knowing that there is a special reason for being here and being a part of it.
1. YOU LEARN TO FACE YOUR FEARS, EVEN IF THEY TERRIFY YOU
Coming to terms with reality is one of the most difficult things anybody is required to do. But you will walk through those fires, with style. You learn to face your fears and don’t let them stop you and paralyze you anymore.
2. YOU BECOME GRATEFUL EVEN FOR THE LITTLE THINGS
Finding your inner soul, and coming in contact with self-love, makes you realize the value of kindness. You are more grateful for the things you have, material or otherwise, and learn to appreciate them even more than ever.
3. YOU LEARN THAT YOU ARE BIGGER THAN YOUR MIND
It will constantly try to trick you into feeling inadequate and horrible about yourself, but you know better than that. You are the master of your emotions.
4. YOU START SEEING SIGNS EVERYWHERE
The Universe is constantly on the look-out. It is sending signs to all the human beings in order to protect them and cushion them in sensitivity. You have learned how to recognize and imbibe those red and white flags.
5. YOU START TO ATTRACT THE RIGHT PEOPLE
When you become a strong person, you automatically begin expelling the toxic elements of your life. Only great human beings are allowed entry into your circle.
6. YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND HAVE BIGGER CONFIDENCE
You know your skills and flaws, and turn both into a source of unmitigated power. Nothing can defeat you if you stand by your own side.
7. YOU STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK OR SAY ABOUT YOU
If you start thinking about their share of the judgement too, what are they going to do? There is only so much free time you have.
8. YOU DEFINE YOURSELF ON YOUR OWN
Who you are, is best understood by your own self. So, instead of running by the definitions of other people, you write your own story, and use your own introduction.
9. YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE UNIQUE
Among 7 billion people on this planet, you are the only version of yourself. That is extremely exciting and wonderful. Don’t lose your originality for the second-hand happiness from somebody else.
10. YOU BECOME MORE ACCEPTING
When you become so comfortable in your own skin, you are automatically more accepting. Your aura and your vibes become much happier.
11. YOUR MORNINGS ARE NO LONGER DREADFUL
You stop hating your existence, because you now know how to deal with it. You take each day as a challenge, showing each obstacle who the real boss is.
12. YOU ARE CHANGING
Nobody remains the same throughout their lives. If they do, then there is something seriously wrong. You derive lessons from all your experiences and constantly labor towards making yourself a better version of you.
13. YOU GAIN INNER PEACE
Irrespective of the turmoil in the outer world, you will experience an inner calmness that you had never known before. This calmness will keep you healthy, and make you a happier and more rational human being.
14. YOU LEARN TO TRUST YOUR GUT MORE THAN BEFORE
That magic chip in your body never fails. It will never lead you astray. You have started to trust your own instincts, and fall into significantly less muck.
15. YOU LEARN THAT EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE
You eradicate negativity from your life, and train yourself to work harder. The sky is the limit for you, and nothing in this world can stop you from achieving your dreams.
16. YOU BECOME MORE RESPONSIBLE
With inner strength comes a lot of maturity. You realize the sheer volume of work you must do for this world and you no longer take your life for granted.
HOW DOES ONE CHANCE UPON INNER-STRENGTH?
The truth is, one does not chance upon it. It comes after several low points in one’s life. It comes after a lot of experience. After you hit rock-bottom, you will know how to build your own way up. And once that happens, you will never go down there again.
