10 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do
Feeling sorry is too self-destructive for mentally strong people. It wastes their precious time, creates
negative emotions and destroys their image.
10. They Don't Waste Time Feeling Sorry
Mentally strong people stand up for themselves and draw the line when necessary. If other people are in
control of their actions, they define their success and power and that is wrong.
9. They Don’t Take Power For Granted
They see change as good and motivate others working with them to support the implementation of the
proposed changes. Making changes can be frightening, but shying away from them
prevents growth and mentally strong people know this.
8. They Embrace Change
Mentally strong people swing for the fences and know that it might mean striking out a few times
before finally succeeding.
7. They Take Risks
Mentally strong people refuse to waste time focusing on things they can’t control because there is
nothing they can do about it!
6. They Never Focus On What They Can’t C
Being disliked is a fact of life and mentally strong people realize that they cannot
appease everyone, especially when they have to make important decisions for the good of all.
5. They Don’t Waste Time Pleasing Others
Mentally strong people accept the fact that the past belongs where it should – the past. You cannot
change it! What you could change is the present/future and that’s the only thing that mentally strong people
focus their attention on.
4. They Don’t Dwell On The Past
Mentally strong people realize that doubting their abilities result in missed opportunities, self-sabotage a
nd living with one foot on the breaks….so they therefore avoid it.
3. They Don’t Doubt Themselves
This is the “elephant in the room”. For mentally strong people, disorganization = cluster. It causes
unneeded delays and creates feelings of overwhelm and information overload.
2. They Don’t Tolerate Clutter
Mentally strong people acknowledge that being the best in the world is pointless if you don’t have a plan
or direction. Taking time to step back and reflect on the big picture is crucial.
1. They Don’t Ignore The Big Vision
