Life Changing: 3 Things To Avoid To Become Mentally Strong

To start off, here's a list of things that you can avoid to live more peacefully and content:

  1. Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves: Take responsibility for your actions, and be in harmony with the results. Accept them, good orr bad!
  2. Give away your power: Mentally strong people avoid giving others the power to make them feel inferior or bad. 
  3. Shy away from change: Don't fear change, rather, disagree from being stagnant for long.
  4. Worry About Pleasing Others: A mentally strong person strives to be kind and fair and to please others where appropriate, but is unafraid to speak up.

Becoming emotionally resilient

The secret to being mentally strong is giving up mental bad habits (no matter how small they may seem) that keep you away from finding a solution or moving on.

It's like building physical strength - going to the gym or working out, but also giving up junk food.

  • When you go through tough feelings, instead of around them...and then move on, you get the confidenece in your ability to handle that discomforts.
  • Compare yourself to only who you were yesterday, not with others. Comparing yourself to others only throws you back into the envy, self-pity loop.
  • Even if you believe things can't change for the better, make one small change. Every little success will create momentum taking you towards your goal.

Evaluate Your Core Beliefs

Over time we all develop core beliefs based on our experiences about ourselves and the world. Whether you’re aware of them or not, they influence your thoughts, behaviors and emotions.

Identify and evaluate your core beliefs to ensure yours aren’t inaccurate and unproductive, or even harmful. Look for beliefs that are black and white, and then find exceptions to the rule.
