Showing strength happens in degrees. Like you said there can be the obvious expression of strength-physical. But it can be emotional or mental strength. Just getting up the following day and "trying again" is a display of courage (strength)
I wonder if these leaders of courage or strength actually knew or wanted to be leaders? Do you think in most of these situations they became leaders of courage by default? Circumstances out of their control?
It can appear so but there is an intuitive feel in the great ones. Something pushing from within. They can sometimes tell and do tell before they become great. Mother Theresa knew. Ali knew.
The 'outer circumstances' might well have been out of control with many of them. It was the 'inner circumstances' that created the strength.
I understand what you mean Tim...
Yes that kind of strength (courage) is "something else". To believe so strongly in one's Heart on top of being so overly opposed is tremendously frightening and inspiring. I wonder if such people were always courageous? Or were just in that moment?
