    • Practical Tips Build A Strong Mind To develop your strengths, learn how to let go of PERFECTIONISM
    • “The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.” - Robert Kiyosaki
    • Mental toughness is an important characteristic in our heroes. The reality is, you and I must also be strong-minded if we are to overcome the obstacles we meet every day. Here are 10 practical tips to build a strong mind :
    • Tip # 1 : Go for good enough Simply realize that there is something called good enough and when you are there then you are finished with whatever you are doing. So find a balance for yourself where you do good work and don’t slack off but at the same time don’t get lost in trying to improve and polish something too much. How to find that balance? I have found it through experience. “Certain flaws are necessary for the whole. It would seem strange if old friends lacked certain quirks.” - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
    • Tip # 2 : Have a deadline A few months ago, I set a deadline for when my book should be finished. I had realized that just working on it and releasing it when it was done would not work. Because I could always find stuff to add to it. So I had to set a deadline. Setting a deadline gave me a kick in the butt and it is generally good way to help you to let go of a need to polish things a bit too much. I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by. - Douglas Adams
    • Tip # 3 : Don’t buy into myths of perfection It can harm or possibly lead you to end relationships, jobs, projects etc. just because your expectations are out of this world. Whenever you get lost in a perfectionist headspace, do remind that it will cause you and your world harm. It’s easier to switch focus and thought patterns to avoid making stupid choices and avoid causing yourself and other people unnecessary pain. A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. - Antoine de Saint
    • Tip # 4 : Accept that you are human and so is everyone else Set human standards for everyone and accept that life is like that. Everything and everyone has flaws and things don’t always go as planned. You can still improve things but they will never be perfect. And realize that you won’t be rejected if things or you aren’t perfect. At least not by reasonably well-balanced human beings, like most people actually are in reality. I do what the voice in my mind tell me What to do!
    • Tip # 5 : Compare yourself to yourself Comparing yourself to other people on a regular basis can easily lead to feeling inferior. There will always be a lot of people ahead of you in any area of life. So compare yourself to yourself. See your improvement, see how far you have come. Appreciate yourself and focus what you have done and are doing rather than what everyone else is doing. “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” - Confucius
    • Tip # 6 : Do what you think is the right thing By doing the right thing your esteem of yourself goes up and other people’s opinions about you and life will matter less to you. Instead of their influence being like a tsunami flooding over you it flows right over you. Or bounces off you. Because now you have become stronger, more certain in who you are and you are not so easily swayed by external forces. “Some of us (perfectionists, especially) fuss so much over making the ‘right’ choice, but in life, all that’s really needed is to make any’ good’ choice, believe in it, go through with it, and accept the consequences.” Unknown
    • Tip # 7 : You don’t have to do everything you do You don’t really have to do anything. Try to look at it as you choosing what to do instead. Of course, there are always consequences. But the point is to take control of your life. Instead of having your world doing the choosing for you. This way of thinking makes it easier to find out what isn’t really that important and eliminate or reduce to free up time. “People throw away what they could have by insisting on perfection, which they cannot have, and looking for it where they will never find it.” - Edith Schaeffer
    • Tip # 8 : Live in an environment of human standards Even though you can lessen the impact that your environment has you can also work at the other end of things and shape your environment to lessen the influence of perfectionism. Spend less time with nervously perfectionists and more time with people who are trying to improve themselves and/or are living a good life in a positive, healthy and relaxed way. “A well-spent day brings happy sleep.” Leonardo Da Vinci
    • Tip # 9 : Accept instead of resisting how you feel Just be here now and be mindful of yourself, the people around you and the summery landscape and sounds. Whenever you are starting to feel stressed again, return to the relaxed space by taking belly breaths and focusing on just that for a while. By accepting how you feel instead of resisting it you reduce the emotional energy that you are feeding into this tension/conflict/problem. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
    • Tip # 10 : Plan to do nothing Just take time to relax and be. The small things we get wrapped up in when we feel stressed are often not that important when you view life from a wider perspective. And it helps to make decisions about what is important to take action on or to just let go. So use some of your vacation time to do what you love to do. “The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.” Sydney J. Harris
    • As a human we all have the ability to be excellent. Take time today to look at this list and if it makes sense, decide which one you could implement on your quest for developing your STRENGTHS and you will become the “Champion of your life!”
    • Don’t’ ask GOD to make your life easier, ask him to make you a stronger person!!! Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
