Are you Strong? Notice, I didn't qualify that with "strong SMELLING" or "Strong MUSCLES." Actally in this instance I'm wondering if you're Strong WILLED. This can be looked at as 'stubborn' but is that always a bad thing?
On the fromJtoZoe blog I posted about Cynthia Tobias who has an LLC that produces and presents materials about working with strong willed children (or adults) and how to understand the learning styles of children. Cynthia has also been a police officer at one time so that makes her presentations even more interesting, as she shows that utilizing a strong will in the right way can manifest amazing results.
Are you stubborn as a mule, well perk up, it may just be your best quality!
