The third line of the Ragger's Creed is "I would be strong, for there is much to suffer."
What does this line make you think of or feel? Does it give you a feeling of self doubt or cause you to work harder to succeed?
For me, this is not just physical strength. What this line is referring to is mental strength, having the integrity and confidence to keep trying, to keep working, to dust yourself off and move forward. For this, you need to pay attention, study hard in school, make the most of your education and learn from all kinds of life experience. The line "learn from your mistakes" fits well into this third line of the Ragger's Creed. If you just give up and do not stay strong ton try again, then life is just going to run past you. If you let your life sufferings like failing a test, getting a grade, falling off your bike, not making the A team or losing site of your goals, then you are letting your "sufferings" get the best of you. Stay strong, dig deep into yourself and keep going. Refocus on your goals, reset your self and seek advice from adults.
