Defining Strength

A strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of Jake, one of the older workmen, chiding him for his age.

After several minutes, Jake was fed up.

"Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?" Jake said. "I will bet a week's pay  that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that building that you won't be able to wheel back."

"You're on, old man," the braggart replied. "It's a bet! Let's see what you've got because this is just going to be too easy!"

Jake reached out and grabbed a wheelbarrow by the handles, then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in."

Moral of the Story: Strength of mind will always triumph over strength of body
