Everything we go through in life, everything we choose to do, or not to do while we are here on Earth pretty much depends on our attitude towards life. In a nutshell, on our determination and our mental strength.
I am not saying that there aren’t other important circumstances that dictate our journey. I just think that regardless of those external factors, we actually do have control over our lives. The truth is, life happens regardless of whether we like it or not. We decide how we respond to it. That’s what actually matters the most.
With that being said, I believe that mental strength is one of the best assets a person can possess today. Mentally strong people are some of the happiest and wisest people that walk the Earth. Here’s why:
1. They don’t waste their time complaining about their lives. They are not the kind of people who enjoy having a victim identity. In fact, if there’s anything in the world that they hate the most, that is the victim mentality in people. Instead of sitting on their asses and whining about a problem, they face the issues and focus on finding the best solutions.
Mentally strong people have been through many things in life to finally learn that difficulties are a part of life. They’ve faced many obstacles to finally realize that all of these challenges push us, shape us into wiser beings and teach us the most important lessons about life. That is why they’ve chosen to always go with the flow.
2. They accept everything that life faces them with, and they learn from their experiences. These amazing human beings are aware that no matter what we do, life will never come with an instruction manual. That is why mentally strong people are never surprised. They don’t live their lives with their expectations up in the clouds. They focus on the present moment, appreciate everything that life gives them, search for the purpose of their experiences and learn to dance in the rain.
Where everyone else sees an obstacle, mentally strong people see a challenge.
3. They have control over their lives. Mentally strong people like to be on top of things. They are aware that they cannot always be in control of everything that happens in their lives, but still, that never stops them from being organized and responsible human beings.
These people don’t waste their time and energy waiting for something to fall off the sky. They get up and work hard for it. They get things done, they take responsibility for their actions and they suffer the consequences on their own. Mentally strong people don’t expect people to save them. They save themselves.
4. They always stand their ground even if that means standing alone. This means saying NO when it’s a clear NO. Holding on to their beliefs even when the whole world is up against them. Expressing their opinions when they are completely different than everyone else’s. Creating boundaries and building up walls to protect their world.
Mentally strong people have respect for themselves and they would never let another human being treat them like they are nobody.
5. They let go of everything that simply doesn’t help them grow. Mentally strong people know that the only way for them to create their best life and find their happiness is by first getting rid of the toxicity around them. Whether that’s a negative influence from a friend, a toxic partner, or an unhealthy lifestyle, mentally strong people distance themselves from everything that pushes them down.
At the end of the day, who we are is pretty much determined by everything that we do in life. So, who are you?
