Be Strong

Be strong.

Be brave and be fearless. Believe in yourself. Know you can do this thing. Know you can conquer the beast. Know that the only thing keeping you from your fullest potential is you. Don't believe in the bad things. Believe the good. Believe you are strong and able and smart and capable.

Be bold in your choices. But know they will come with work. Hard work. Boring work. Monotonous, tiresome work. It's not all joy and fun. It's not all easy. It's hard. And sometimes the road is long, uphill, steep and rocky.

But you, my friend. You are strong. And capable. And more powerful than you know.

Be strong, mighty soldier. And know that - no matter what - believing you are strong is half the battle.
