Inner Strength

Where do you get your Inner Strength from??  Kind of a weird question, right?  Because you only know you have Inner Strength when you need to use it.  I liken it to, you only appreciate your good health when you are sick.  One needs to draw upon their Inner Strength when something is difficult.  For example, when I went through a 14 hour surgery/recovery, boy did I need some Inner Strength.  Then today, in my Yoga class with Diane Laylin MacDonald She talked about Building Inner Strength.  She gave 4 tips (reprinted with her permission):

  1. Try something new in your yoga practice-go to a place you have not gone before.
  2. Cultivate an attitude of Acceptance.
  3. Create a Success Practice-recall at the end of each day your successes and honor yourself
  4. Meditate each day for at least 20 minutes (my personal favorite)
One needs to build Inner Strength to get better at Yoga (running, exercise,etc.)  or to overcome difficulties both physical and emotional.

So, where do you get your Inner Strength?
