“The task ahead of you is never greater than the strength within you”

’The task ahead of you is never greater than the strength within you” is a motivational saying (often associated with physical activities, such as running) that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts and posters.  “The task ahead of you is never greater than the power behind you” was cited in print in 1989. The authorship of the saying is unknown.

The task ahead of you is never greater than the power behind you.
