There is no doubt that many strong people show character traits from childhood. However, to many, will power comes also during life with different tests and “testing for strength.” And if you are not lucky enough to get this quality from birth, you can still develop it in yourself gradually.
A strong person is always responsible for his words and deeds. He does not throw promises to the wind and knows the value of each of his phrases. In addition, he knows how to have an impact on others. His manner of behavior always forces them not to allow themselves excess and even involuntarily obey. At the same time, truly powerful people do not use cheap tricks or methods of pressure on people (it’s not about “those in power” who are able to manipulate the masses). They openly demonstrate their true nature, without fear of criticism or misunderstanding.
Strong personalities are not afraid of manifestations of their feelings and their “I”. They are ready to protect him and are not going to give up personal principles for recognition. Life difficulties they often perceive as a challenge or an opportunity to win. Even if something very unexpected and unpleasant happens, they digest the event on their own, considering a possible action plan. Fate can not break them: they usually perceive surprises as a reality. Thus, new complexities harden them and make them even stronger.
A distinctive feature of such people is an objective self-confidence. They are able to really assess their capabilities, so they go where most people get lost and run away. It is important to note that strong people are usually great optimists, not only seeing “the light at the end of the tunnel,” but also coming to it, despite the surrounding gloom.
