inner strength, resilience, will power

We can be heroes, just for one day.

Personally, I believe we can be heroes every single day of our life. Sometimes we think being a hero is just “out of our league”, we are not supposed to save nobody’s life. We tend to consider a hero a person who has got hugely high supernatural powers and we identify him/her only with the Marvel characters.

But how would you define a hero? Is strength (the muscular one) the only and important feature for a hero? Could you name a personality or a person you know that you really admire and consider a hero?

In the classroom we are preparing for the vision of Unbroken and the Pianist films, and we’ve started discussing the following issues: What is strength in general? Do you know what resilience is? How important is the will power to you? Do you consider yourself strong enough? Do you maybe need a mentor or a motivator to act and react to adversities?

Here below you can find the link to the article from http://alyssaksilva.com

Defining Your Inner Strength

Sometimes we forget we can be heroes. Always. Every single day. And we don’t need money, or a muscular built body, or a university degree.

Just a smile will do.

Well, I can see there is a lot to talk about on the plate here. But I would really like to read what you think about these topics.

Have a nice week

Ms D.

    Strength is not only physical but also emotional.
    Strength is when you get up again after you have fallen.
    Strength is a fundamental emotion for our lives.
    Resilience can also be a personal characteristic as when a person is unable to relate to anyone.

    Will power is the force that makes you decision and action that can change you life.
    All in all, I believe that human emotion is what is most strong and frail at the same time and can not be copied or installed in some robots etc ..

  4. I think that the strength within each of us, is something to be discovered. Also it is very important to know how to use.
    Knowing your personal strengths and weaknesses can help you a lot in choosing the right career or making good decisions. Because if you are able to focus what you do around your personal strengths, you have the chance to create something remarkable, while making it look like it’s almost effortless for you.When you know how to use it, you can also become a hero in your life and those around you.

  7. Will power is what keeps you going on in the most unpleasant moments of your life, willpower and resilience are those things that make you achieve your own goals. However, this only happens when these two start from the inside of you. Maybe you didn’t notice, but you already have them inside you.
    And in my personal opinion everyone has got it from the moment they are born.

  9. Strength is not a weapon. I think that if divided into categories it is also spiritual, and not only psychological or muscular.
    Strength is when you deal with a problem to be able to solve any difficult situation, overcoming all adversities that come before us. Resilience is the ability to fight in our minds traumatic events in a positive way, to reorganize our lives positively in face of difficulties.
    Will power is what gives us the strength to go on, it is directly related to self-esteem that everyone should have.
    Will power is important because without it we can not resolve the problems of every day, the forces mentioned above are all corelated one to the other.
    All in all, I believe that everyone has different amounts of strength inside us, making us all different.

Moreover, I think that one of the things that allows you to move forward in real life is also will power that makes us believe we are strong. Using our inner skills and intelligence make us do anything.

  25. Well, a hero is not necessary someone that has supernatural abilities. Sci-fi books and films make us think that a hero is someone that has (not always) a sad story and than he decides to help and save other people lives. The fact is that everyone in this world can be a hero, you just need to choose what kind of hero you want to be. We have real heroes, for example a police officer, fireman, soldier, they all risk their own life trying to protect yours. If someone makes an accident with a car, a big one where he gets serious damage. As soon as someone calls the ambulance, a clock starts to tiking, they have just one hour to save your life, but in this hour they need to get to you, give you the fist aid, get you in the hospital, prepare you for the surgery, so at the end they have only 20 or 15 min to save your life. They are not simple heroes…They are superheroes.
    For me the strength is a result of a men’s capabilities…more he has good capabilities more he is strong.
    I don’t consider myself strong, when is was a little boy, my mum was a mentor and a motivator. Now things changed, now I have no one to push me, motivate me constantly. I try to motivate myself but it’s not easy, when I have to make a decision, in most of the times it ends with headache…
