The Reason Why We need a Strong Personality

We are all different. We come in all shapes and sizes, with different personalities and levels of maturity, with all kinds of quirks and idiosyncrasies.

But we also share one thing in common: we all need a strong personality to get through this life.

To be successful in life, you need a strong personality that can cope with the ups and downs, the challenges and opportunities that life has to offer.

Think about it: every time you’ve faced an obstacle or setback. Did it make you stronger? Or did it just make you give up?

The answer to this question will come down to how well you have developed your own “personality” and How well you have built up the skills needed for dealing with adversity (and building resilience).

To be successful in life, we need to have a strong personality. But a weak personality won’t be able to handle the responsibilities they have. They will not be able to deal with their emotions and will most likely fail at everything they do.

 For them to succeed, they need someone else who can help them out and ensure that they can cope with whatever comes their way.

1. Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most influential people in the world. Her story is inspiring, and she’s always been there for others. She’s not just a television personality, she’s a role model, and an example to anyone who wants to be successful.

In a speech, Oprah said: “You can’t use your power or influence to make money. You can’t use your power or influence to get credit for it.” She said that she didn’t want her audience to think her success was only due to her hard work but rather because of their love and support.

In a 2016 interview with People Magazine, Oprah said: “I once thought people would say, ‘Oh, she’s just another African-American woman who got lucky.’ But I knew from the beginning that if I had any power then it wasn’t going to be my power but theirs.”

Her story is inspiring because everyone has something that can use for good in this world: We all have talents and abilities we can use for good.

Oprah has always been a champion of women’s rights, and she continues today by speaking out against discrimination against black people in America today. She believes that everyone should have equal rights under the law no matter what their race or gender identity is.

Her story is worth remembering not only because she helped pave the way for other black women who followed in her footsteps but also because she inspired so many others around her with her work ethic and determination throughout every step of her career.

Walt Disney was an American cartoonist and co-founder of Walt Disney Studios. He made his first animated film in 1923, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which is still considered a classic today.

He was a canny businessman who had a great sense of where the public’s interests lay. His first foray into television was in 1953 when he launched Disneyland, as well as its companion theme park called Disney World.

Disney died in 1966 at age 65 from lung cancer.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Irish immigrants who worked as streetcar conductors.

His father worked hard to educate him, even though it meant that he had to skip school and work on the streetcars instead.

When he graduated from high school, he went to work for his uncle as an apprentice cartoonist at a newspaper called the Kansas City Star.

He loved drawing cartoons so much that he decided to become a professional cartoonist instead of just being one!

He started working at another newspaper called The American Newspaper Syndicate in Kansas City, Missouri. He became very successful with his cartoons and eventually left the newspaper business altogether to focus solely on creating new ones!

Walt Disney created some of the most iconic characters in history like Mickey Mouse.

3. J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling is a woman who has been through many things in her life. She was born in Scotland, and she had to escape her home country because of the war. She then went to live with her aunt and uncle, who were kind and loving people.

She had a very difficult time when she was growing up, but she never let it stop her from doing what was right for her. She was also very studious, and she loved reading books by authors like Agatha Christie, who wrote detective stories!

She did not go to school until she was 11 years old because they had no money for that type of thing at the time. Instead, she would read books at home or go outside into nature and write down what she saw there on paper so that others would be able to learn from it later on!

When she was 16 years old, JK Rowling published a book called “A History of Magic” which later became famous for its success among children everywhere.

Before writing Harry Potter, she worked as a journalist at the Central Newsroom in London for two years. She also wrote for The Scotsman newspaper for a short period of time before moving on to become a full-time writer in 1990.

In addition to writing the Harry Potter series, she has written several other books including The Casual Vacancy, The Cuckoo’s Calling, and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

4. Bill Gates

Bill Gates is a man of many hats. He started as a computer programmer and has since become one of the richest people in the world, thanks to his company, Microsoft.

He started working on computers while he was still in high school when he was just 16 years old. The first computer that he programmed was a computerized version of his BASIC programming language (it’s now known as Microsoft Basic for Beginners.)

Gates went on to major in computer science at Harvard University before dropping out to start Microsoft with Paul Allen. Gates met with MIT professor Jeff Raskin about their idea for an operating system for personal computers, which would eventually become Windows 1.0 and Windows 2.0. The two men invested $10,000 from their pocket into the project and sold it for $50 million to Microsoft Corp., which was then renamed “Microsoft” after its founders’ initials (MOS).

Microsoft became one of the most successful companies in history; it currently has more than 100 million users worldwide. But Bill Gates is still one of its biggest shareholders until today.

5. Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs is one of the most important people in the history of technology. He was a visionary, and he changed the world. He’s also one of the most controversial figures who ever lived.

Jobs was born on January 24, 1955, in San Francisco, California. He started as an engineering student at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but he dropped out after two years because he found it hard to focus on his studies.

As a result of his hard work, Steve Jobs founded Apple Inc. He was an American businessman, engineer, and inventor who co-founded Apple Inc., which he led until his resignation in 1985.

 During his career at Apple, Jobs led the development of the Macintosh computer, the iMac G3, and other products. After leaving Apple, he founded NeXT Inc., which developed advanced operating systems for computers that ran on the NeXTSTEP platform. He also helped establish both Pixar Animation Studios and NeXT Software. 

In addition to being a business leader, Jobs was also known for his style.


It’s the modern world, and we’re constantly bombarded with new things, solutions, and advice. The problem is all these solutions don’t fit into one mold. Though every case is different; Remember that no matter how much advice you get there will always be a way to create your solution or lifestyle. 

You’ll find there won’t be one answer to remove complexity from your life but only a series of good habits that you develop to do it yourself every day.

No matter who you are, no matter how confident or secure you feel, you still struggle with the occasional dilemma of what to do and how to act. And when we feel that strong sense of self and identity, we often find our passions or personal convictions causing us to butt heads with others.

The most important thing is your personality. “Your personality drives how you relate to and interact with society and determines your overall potential to succeed in life.”
