Our true strength comes from our ideal
Have you ever came across a situation like, you have seen a statue of Mahatma Gandhi or Jawaharlal Nehru or somebody similar and you have felt a sense of current flowing through your body and telling you to be like that? Or have you ever dreamt of being like your father or anybody around you whose life story is so impressive that it drags you into an imagination of being like him one day!
If yes, he is your ideal; the person by whom you are inspired, the person whose personality impresses you or whose success gives you strength to do something.
An ideal person is the one whom you love to follow and he is the one who actually helps you decide the pathway to achieve your dreams or targets. His personality and your obsession of being like him give you energy to continuously step forward towards your goals and to fight from the hurdles that comes in the way of your work.
On the other hand, if you don’t have an ideal image in your mind, its very easy and frequent that either you are not been able to fix your goals, or you are not been able to decide the exact way to achieve it or you may easily get distracted by the hurdles.
In my view, an ideal gives you inspiration, courage, proper direction, energy and if they all comprise to make up strength, I can say that yes, our strength comes from our ideal.
