In brief: The mind is strong!

Strong enough to know when to get help.
Strong enough to overcome obstacles in the path to get help. Strong enough to defeat fears & keep going when it appears almost hopeless. Even when we feel completely exhausted, the mind finds strength to keep moving on. We can do it by thinking, but never by "only thinking it". We have to do what our mind thinks right and gives us courage to accomplish.
