By Getrude Mathayo / Published December 20, 2022 | 11:34 am




KEY POINTS

You have to take 100% responsibility for everything that happens in your life. You have to take hold of the fact that where you are today is because of the choices you made before, and where you will be tomorrow is because of the choices you make today.


Mentally Strong

KEY TAKEAWAYS


Criticism is often rooted in truth, even when it’s not delivered in an ideal manner. When you receive negative feedback, there are two choices: You can put your feelings aside and try to learn from the situation, or you can get angry and let emotion get the best of you.


Mentally strong people have healthy habits. They manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in ways that set them up for success in life.

It is the daily practice of pushing yourself to grow stronger, maintaining realistic optimism, and setting healthy boundaries. Mentally strong people don’t do things like waste time feeling sorry for themselves or give away their power to other people.

Mental strength takes a long time to develop. It is the daily practice of pushing yourself to grow stronger, maintaining realistic optimism, and setting healthy boundaries.

  1. You understand no one owes you anything.

Understand that you are not entitled to anything. Unfortunately, the world does not owe you anything. Life is unfair and it’s your job to make the best of what you get in life, not to complain about what you deserve but don’t have. The earlier we realize that no one owes us anything, the better for us.

  1. You take nothing personally

When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world. It is important to  understand your mental health is way more important than their opinion

  1. You have set boundaries with people

Knowing how to set boundaries is one of the most essential yet overlooked social skills. The more precise you can express your boundaries, the more likely your boundaries will be respected.

While you may need to repeat yourself a few times, don’t feel the need to apologize or explain your boundaries. You already understand you’ll get misused for being too nice.

  1. You’re Not Afraid to Analyze Your Weaknesses

You accept the fact that you have weaknesses. You don’t let your ego take control of you and hide those weaknesses away; you look them straight in the eye so that you can understand them to the best of your ability.

  1. You take 100% responsibility for your own life and never complain or blame anyone or situations.

Mentally Strong

You have to take 100% responsibility for everything that happens in your life. You have to take hold of the fact that where you are today is because of the choices you made before, and where you will be tomorrow is because of the choices you make today.

  1. You take criticism and never get offended.

Whether a successful entrepreneur or a loyal employee, criticism is never easy to take.

Mentally Strong

But the truth is, criticism is often rooted in truth, even when it’s not delivered in an ideal manner. When you receive negative feedback, there are two choices: You can put your feelings aside and try to learn from the situation, or you can get angry and let emotion get the best of you.

  1. You never force anyone to choose you

Don’t force people to love you, to chat with you, to talk with you; it’s a sign to know who is the right person for you. The right person always finds a way to connect with you

  1. You never take advice from people who aren’t where you want to be in life.

Life favors people already at the top. But regardless of where you started, you can improve your circumstances. Waiting for the world to be fair is a losing strategy.

  1. You never use your weekend to “escape” the life you already have.

One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular

  1. You’ve realized your mental health is way much more important than your career.

Studies have shown that when one cares for their mental health, it is more likely that their productivity levels will increase in all areas of their life. Needless to say, your mental health should be one of the most vital aspects of your life if not the most

  1. You choose productive behavior

While it may be tempting to make excuses, complain about other people, and avoid difficult circumstances, mentally strong people refuse to waste time on unproductive activities

  1. You face the fears that hold you back

While mentally strong people don’t need to conquer fears because they have something to prove to others, they do strive to face the fears that hold them back

  1. You Can Be Kind Even When Things Are Tough

Sometimes you have to deal with the storms; the challenges and obstacles, the parts of your life that make you reconsider everything you care about, everything you’re working towards.

  1. You Know When To Ask For Help

Help doesn’t scare you. It doesn’t make you feel insecure about yourself, as if you’re a lesser version of yourself simply because you acknowledged your limitations and asked other people to give you help.

  1. You Only Compete Against Yourself

You’re doing all this to be better than yourself, yourself yesterday, yourself last month, yourself last year. You want to progress, to improve, to continuously push yourself to greater heights.

It’s not about being better than anyone; it’s simply about being better.
