If you look into the heart and soul of a truly strong girl, what would you see? Passion. Courage. Determination. Perseverance. Boundless Energy. An incredible sense of adventure. No obstacle is too large and no dream is too big. They love what they do and they'll do whatever it takes to reach their goals.



So where does their strong nature come from? How can you catch the strong girl fever and challenge yourself in ways you only dreamed about before? You already have it in you, it’s just waiting to be uncovered. Here are some tips to get you started on the path of becoming a strong girl.


1. Get Your Mind in Shape
Positive thinking, better known as optimism, is a strong girl's best friend. You need to mentally prepare for all of your adventures - big or small. Let's face it: Sometimes it's a little scary going on adventures for the first time. You need to think positively and find the courage and confidence to overcome any fears.


2. Exercise Your Body
Simply put: Get out there and get your body moving! Just thinking you can do it is truly not enough. Whether you are exploring the wilderness, playing football with the boy's team or vaulting over a 30-foot wall with ease, you’ll need to train and develop your body. This can include strengthening and stretching exercises.


3. Know the Risks
Only strong girls can admit they are apprehensive, maybe even frightened, about the prospect of challenging themselves physically and pushing themselves to the limits. A responsible girl is truthful about the risks and potential dangers in anything she attempts to accomplish.


4. Set Goals
It’s important to measure your success by setting goals. Start by picking out something you want to improve on, whether its running a faster mile or getting better grades on your math tests. Set a final goal of where you would like to see yourself in the future. Then, decide what you need to do to achieve your goals. This will make it easier to track your progress, celebrate your accomplishments and decide where you might need some help.


5. Visualize Your Dreams
Take action. Make lists. Read books. Daydream. See yourself climbing the mountain, sailing the sea, floating through space. And then believe it could be you. There may be days when you feel discouraged, doubtful and downright exhausted while you chase your dreams. But pick up that chin and smile — strong girls never give up.

being a strong girl is awesome, remember that you are the only you and no other girl is just like you, being strong is also about no regrets in life, and no one in your life will ruin and hurt you and affect you. Don't listen to anyone who is going to make you do something that is not nice to do, this is also being strong because you have the right to walk away from anything that is wrong to do and bad to do. Be strong in this.

Being strong doesn't mean go beat someone up. It takes a lot of strength to not as well or stand up for the little guy. Strength comes from the heart and mind no matter how large or small if it is something you feel in your heart and it makes it pound hard in your chest when you think about it whether it's your safety, winning the swim meet, passing the math test, scoring high on th S.A.T.'s if your heart is in it, There is nothing you cant achieve.
