In order to be mentally strong people, we need to recognize our tendency to develop certain patterns of self-sabotage thinking and behavior due to a belief” programming” we absorb from those around us during past experiences.
If this mental state stimulates unwanted anxiety and hurt (depending on the circumstances) we need to start doing something about it.
If we recognize that these old patterns of behavior are not working for us in our present we have the power to stop them from causing more harm than good.
Also accept that if we keep doing what we are always doing we will not be able to let go and move on towards a better state of positive thinking.
Below are some recommendations to improve mental strength:
• Don’t fear alone time.
• Don’t dwell on the past.
• Don’t feel the world owes you.
• Don’t expect immediate results.
• Don’t fear taking calculated risks.
• Don’t give up after the first failure.
• Don’t shy away from responsibilities.
• Don’t worry about pleasing everyone.
• Don’t resent on other people’s success.
• Don’t let others influence emotions
• Don’t waste time feeling sorry for yourself.
• Don’t waste energy on things you can’t control.
Last but not least;
“Your mind is a powerful weapon if you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change in a positive way.”
