How to Achieve Mental Strength

ITS hard to achieve mental strength when you feel stuck. The ability to break the mould and take a bold new direction requires extra input, courage, determination and perseverance. These kinds of qualities only the mentally strong have!!

Mentally strong people are:

EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT:

To fully understand and tolerate strong negative emotions and do something productive with them takes mental strength. Moments that test your mental strength are ultimately testing your emotional intelligence. Your emotional intelligence is in fact flexible and can be improved where IQ is not.

THEY ARE CONFIDENT:

Your mentality has a powerful effect on your ability to succeed. THIS is a fact.

“when you think, you can, or think you can’t – you are right {Henry Ford}

Confidence inspires others and helps them to make things happen.

THEY EMBRACE CHANGE:

Mentally strong people are flexible and are constantly adapting and growing with circumstances. They know that fear of change is paralyzing and a major threat to their success and happiness.

Only when you embrace change can you find the good in it.

THEY SAY NO:

The more difficulty you have to say NO the more likely you are to experience stress, burn out or depression.

Saying NO is healthy, self-affirming and builds good self-esteem.

THEY NEUTRALIZE DIFFICULT PEOPLE:

Mentally strong people take charge of their interactions with toxic people by keeping their emotions in check.

Not letting anger or frustration fuel the chaos is of utmost importance.

They find solutions to problems and try and find common ground at all times.

It’s important to take a toxic person with a grain of salt to avoid letting him or her bring them down.

THEY DON’T DWELL ON MISTAKES:

Where we focus, our attention will determine our emotional state. When you focus on action to better yourself and your circumstances, you create a sense of personal efficacy.

THEY DON’T COMPARE THEMSELVES TO OTHERS. Everyone has something to offer and one does not have to take other people down a notch to feel good about themselves.

THEY EMBRACE FAILURE:

The road to success is paved with failure and with the experience of failure one can see a solution that you have been missing. Frustration always forces you to think differently….”out of the box”.

THEY EXERCISE:

People with mental strength that exercise at least 2x per week rate their body image and self-esteem higher and it keeps you strong and healthy.

THEY GET ENOUGH SLEEP:

Quality sleep is a priority for better strength, motivation, health and stamina and mental wellbeing …in general for all of our wellbeing.

THEY ARE RELENTLESSLY POSITIVE:

Mentally strong people don’t get caught up in things they can’t control like the weather or a war of famine…etc but they focus their energy on things within their power.

Lastly…. MENTAL STRENGTH CAN BE ACHIEVED AND IS NOT A TALENT JUST FOR A FEW CHOSEN…
