English term or phrase: take one big brace
Hello everyone,

When a man loses his grip today, he must win his redemption by his own will. He will get little encouragement or advice of an inspiring nature. He must usually regain the right road alone. He must stop dissipating his energies and turn his attention to building a useful career. Today we must conquer our weakening tendencies alone. Don't expect anyone to help you. Just **take one big brace**, make firm resolutions, and resolve to conquer your weaknesses and vices. Really none can do this for you. They can encourage you; that is all

Thank you.

agree  Sheila Wilson: with the explanation. Don't think the term is English, though :-)

  -> Thanks Sheila. A lot of New Age writing seems to me to bear little resemblance to English (said he, showing his age).
