You’re Strong Enough: Unleash Your Inner Strength

By Team Kwanza Jones

inner strength

Have you ever felt the fear of starting something new? Or perhaps, you’ve found yourself giving up halfway through a project because you lacked the courage or motivation to continue. If so, there are two things to keep in mind.

First of all, know that you’re not alone. Secondly, you’re strong enough. You have the strength within you to achieve your goals.

Take our CEO, Kwanza Jones, for example, an acclaimed artist, philanthropist, and impact investor. She didn’t reach her level of success by chance. It was her inner strength that propelled her to where she is today. She stood for what she believed in, pursued her passion, owned her power, and lived her purpose. Kwanza was strong enough to be herself, and that made all the difference.

So, how can you tap into your inner strength like Kwanza Jones? Here's a guide inspired by Kwanza's experience and success story.

Surround Yourself with Support

One way to gain strength is to surround yourself with friends who support you and can keep you accountable. These are the people who will cheer you on when you succeed and pick you up when you fall. Think of it like a community specifically built for you. They believe in you, even when you don’t believe in yourself. Kwanza often attributes her tenacity and drive to the robust network of friends and mentors who never let her forget her worth, even when things get tough.

Be Your Own Best Boost Friend™

If you often listen to Kwanza speaking, you may have heard her asking the question, “You may have a best friend but do you have a boost friend?” The term “Boost Friend” originates from her belief that no one succeeds alone... sometimes you need a boost. It is the combination of a good friend + a trusted mentor rolled into one.

You can be your own Boost Friend by treating yourself with the same kindness and understanding as you would offer a friend facing difficulties. By incorporating self-compassion into your daily life, you can build a stronger, more resilient inner self that is better equipped to handle life's challenges.

Kwanza practices self-compassion by acknowledging her challenges, speaking kindly to herself, and staying mindful. Over 11 years ago, she created her personal statement to give herself a boost and provide inspiration whenever she’s feeling down. She still draws strength from it to date. This helps her maintain a positive outlook and strengthens her resolve to pursue her goals despite obstacles.

Find Your WHY

Why did you start the project? Why are you trying to achieve this goal? Finding your “why” can give you the strength to carry on, even when it seems impossible. Kwanza has a clear vision that goes beyond making money. She always moves with the intention of creating a meaningful impact. That is why she came up with the goal of boosting a billion lives. This powerful motive has been the cornerstone of her resilience and perseverance.

Embrace Challenges and Mistakes

Challenges are not roadblocks; they’re opportunities for growth. Overcoming challenges gives you valuable lessons that will help you grow in the future. The same goes for making mistakes. You can learn from them and grow to become better. Remember, it’s not about how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up. The key is to stay persistent.

You Are Strong Enough

We often underestimate our strength. But the truth is, we have more strength than we know. Don’t let the fear of failing stop you from starting or achieving your goals. You are strong enough to stand for what you believe in. You are strong enough to pursue your passion. You are strong enough to own your power and live your purpose. Most importantly, you are strong enough to be YOU.

Through her story, Kwanza exemplifies the power of self-belief and the impact of a supportive community. Her journey intertwines with these insights, giving us a blueprint for harnessing our inner strength. Every step you take, infused with determination and guided by your “why,” moves you closer to your aspirations. Kwanza tapped into her inner strength, bolstered by her supportive friends, and look where it got her!

Now, it's your turn. Embrace your challenges, cherish your support system, and unleash the powerhouse within you.

In the words of Kwanza Jones, “Don’t just make billions, make a difference.” So, go out there and make your move, because you’re strong enough. And remember, the world needs who you were made to be. So be strong, be YOU.
