Weekly Buzz Strong

 Strong is a word of many meanings!

When you use the word strength or strong remember that it has more than one meaning and it is also a word that is perceived by the listener through their own lens. That means they will interpret your meaning based on their life experience!

You can mitigate this by adding detail! Are you talking about:
  • inner mental strength (resilience, perseverance, character, determination, etc)
  • muscle strength
Muscle strength is a vast continuum of variation. You might consider yourself strong if you can lift a 25lb dumbbell and someone else may consider themselves strong if they can lift a 100+lb barbell! How the listener perceives your meaning is based on what parameters their mind has assigned to the definition of strong.
