There are a lot of people out there that are not mentally strong. If one bad thing happens to them, they crumble and they get really discouraged. They are not able to deal with rejection or defeat. As a result, they become very dependent on things always working out for the best for themselves. On the other hand, mentally strong people are people that are thankful and know how lucky they are. They work hard and stay true to themselves.
- Mentally strong people practice gratitude, which can be as simple as identifying a few things to be thankful for daily.
- Mentally strong people have mastered the necessary art of saying no, thereby keeping their inner resources protected.
- They have learned to quell their inner critic, understanding that negativity and a lack of optimism can be their own self-fulfilling prophecy of doom.
“Most people run away from their fears, but not the mentally strong.”
