Sometimes we’re tested not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths.

Time often arrives in our life when we are left with no option but to move on. It might seem impossible to sustain or move on in such times, but we survive. It is during such times that we discover our real strength. We are often unaware of what we are capable of until we are tested to our limits. It is essential that we continue to move ahead in the right direction irrespective of how many challenges we face on the way. And, sometimes we have to test ourselves and push ourselves to the limit. It is how we grow, and it is how we gain life experiences. You never know your real strength until you push the boundaries. Do not underestimate yourself. Never say I cannot do this or that until you try it.

We discover our strengths when we are tested to limits

No one who endured unbearable pain or has struggled through numerous challenges knew that they could survive such storms. It is when they went through it themselves that they realize they are far more capable than they believed. Our inner strength is immense, and when it is put to the test, it never disappoints. There would be times when you’ll feel like giving up but is during such times when you are closest to achieving your goals. These are the tests in our lives that we have to face and pass. Everyone faces such challenges in different forms, and you’ll too. Do not fear facing challenges, fear for the challenges. Believe in yourself and know that God only puts you through challenges that He knows you can handle.

The mind fails before the body

Thinking positively is important to gain the mental strength you need to face the challenges and difficulties in life head-on. Thinking negatively drains your strength to face the challenges as you already believe you’ll fail. Encourage yourself as well as find inspiration to move on and face the tests life puts you through. When there is no one around, believe in you, and motivate yourself to keep on keeping on. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and you need to know the mind fails before the body. Do not let your mind dictate you and believe you cannot because you can, and you know it.

Do not underestimate yourself

Many times, we look at the problems we are facing and give up before even trying. It is because we underestimate ourselves most of the time. You don’t know what you’re capable of until you try. When you think less of yourself, it becomes your subconscious reality even when it’s not true. You’ve to constantly motivate and encourage yourself to push new boundaries and set new limits. It is how we grow in the journey of life. Do not set predefined limits on yourself that would keep you within a certain boundary. Keep trying and keep discovering new strengths. It is possible because unless you try, you’ll never know what you’re capable of.

You don’t know your true potential

We do things today that we earlier thought were impossible for us. Isn’t it? Think about what you’re doing today, and you’ll realize that a few years back, it seemed almost impossible. We do not know our true potential, and it is why we have to force ourselves to face new challenges continually. Do not worry about the problems in your life; just know that they are there because God knew you could handle it. It is these tests that would help you discover your true self and your true strength. And, the best part is that more tests you give and get through, stronger you come out of it. Do not give up, ever.
