Many different strengths, both physical and mental. Some of the power, we do not understand well, even we value identical with weaknesses, such as "patient". Patience, we often interpret it as "the ability to suppress the turmoil of the heart in order to achieve good or better". But do not assume, that suppressing all the turmoil of the heart is patience. This is because if someone you fear persecutes you, and the desire of the heart arises to prevent it (reciprocate), but you do not do it out of fear (while still suppressing your heart's turmoil), then you are not patient, but that is proof of your weakness.
Patience is only played by the strong, so if you feel you can repay the evil of others, but you suppress your heart's turmoil, then that's when you are patient. Likewise with forgiveness.
Speech full of wisdom by Ali bin Abi Talib, "If you need someone, you become a prisoner. If you don't need it, you are worth it. And if you are needed by someone else, you become the power of attorney. "Therefore, reduce your needs as much as possible, even if you don't judge them too much. So that, if it is not fulfilled, it is easy for you to throw it from the heart, as easy as throwing sand from your hand.
This, not an invitation to ignore the pleasures of life, or feel satisfied with a little. But this is an invitation to educate the soul, what and when should he want and feel the need. And when to dump your wants and needs. This, is an effort to combine the needs and opponents. Just like sportsmen who are demanded to insist, try and try their best to achieve victory, by presenting a beautiful game. But at the same time, he must be mentally prepared to suffer defeat without losing self-confidence.
In this context, the Koran warns that, "Not one event is experienced by a person, unless it has existed in divine knowledge, before that event occurred. This is very easy with Allah, so that you do not grieve, for the escape of a hope from your reach, nor for being overjoyed at what is given to you. God is displeased with everyone who arrogantly prides himself. (Qur'an, 57:23).
This is the lantern that makes the owner able to be right and reasonable, whether they succeed or fail to reach expectations. And this is also capable of avoiding the syndrome that is often suffered by those who lose hope. This is one aspect of patience, which often escapes our understanding. Getting it is not easy, it requires strength, or in other words patience. Because, isn't it said above that patience is strength, not weakness.
