18 Things Mentally Strong people do with their lives

1) They Move On:

Most often we find it difficult to move on from our past, we try and we are constantly reminded to do so …but the past keeps coming back and our Ego drives it home, time and time again! But truth is, we must move on and if were finding this a hard one to crack then we should always seek help because the past will not help you but it will certainly hold you back!

2) They Keep Control:

Mentally strong people are always in control of their lives and they are relentless in keeping this control. No one can and should control your live…only YOU, so make a difference to your life and take control of it NOW!

3) They Embrace Change:

Change is good, change brings new things and new opportunities to our lives, change brings a breath of fresh air to our lives, so embrace it and enjoy what a new day and a new tomorrow will bring you.

4) They Stay Happy:

They don’t complain, they don’t waste energy on things they can’t control and they stay happy, positivity leads to more happiness, happiness attracts happiness…So, start today with a smile and end it with a smile, BE HAPPY!

5) They Are Kind:

Mentally strong people are certainly kind; they are fair and unafraid to speak up. They don’t worry about pleasing other people because they are confident in everything they do in knowing that kindness begets kindness and kindness is LOVE and Love is everything.

6) They Are Willing To Take Calculated Risks:

They always weigh up the risks before taking action. In life; we all have to make choices and take some risks but we are often controlled by our Ego and our either too high or too low levels of skepticism, this leads us to back off from some great opportunities that may well have lead us to more freedom, new relationships, a better job or career, longer term success and ultimate happiness! So, do like they do, map out the pros and cons and take some calculated risks.

7) They Invest Their Energy In The Present:

Don’t dwell on the past, and don’t spend your time worrying about the future move on and live in the ‘Present’ because the ‘Present’ is where LIFE Happens!

8) The Accept Full Responsibility For Their Past Behaviour:

They don’t make the same mistakes over and over again, they live and they learn and accept what has happened thus far in their lives, in short they take ownership and are accountable for their actions, good or bad and then move on to bigger and better things!

9) They Celebrate Other Peoples Success:

Positive, mentally strong people are always happy to toast and celebrate the success of others, they don’t hold a grudge, they have no jealousy for what others have achieved and they gain strength from the law of attraction, success breads success as does happiness begets happiness!

10) They Are Willing To Fail:

Successful, mentally strong people don’t give up after failing, they see every failure as a stepping stone to the next opportunity and gain strength from learning in the process.

11) They Enjoy Their Time Alone:

They don’t fear being alone. Alone time is good, it allows us to reconnect with our inner self, to be at peace with our soul and gain clarity to our journey. Use this alone time well, meditate and learn from your higher self because your higher self will never let you down.

12) They Are Prepared To Work And Succeed On Their Own Merits:

They don’t feel the world owes them anything, it’s their responsibility; they are in charge of their destiny…No one else!

13) They Have Staying Power:

They don’t expect immediate results, ‘Rome was not built in a day’, ‘A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With The First Step’, ‘If At First You Don’t Succeed, Try and Try Again’……In short, please remember, ‘Don’t Give Up because you never know how close to success you were when you give up!

14) They Evaluate Their Core Beliefs:

And they constantly check on them as they move on with their lives, things change so they modify as needed.

15) They Expend Their Mental Energy Wisely:

They don’t spend time on unproductive thoughts or pastimes, they surround themselves with positive; like-minded people and they focus on the end goal/s and they don’t waste energy on things of non-importance.

16) They Think Productively:

They replace negative thoughts with productive thoughts, E.g., Lets do it rather than I’ll try

17) They Tolerate Discomfort:

They accept their feelings without being controlled by them. I.e. getting up 1 hours earlier every morning to go to the gym may be a challenge and cause additional work but its for the greater good so they tolerate the discomfort of getting up early in order to maintain better heath and give them greater energy to do even more with their lives.

18) They Reflect On Their Progress:

Every day they take time to consider what they have achieved, what needs to be changes and where they are going.

  • Thank You Mark. I compiled a list a while ago but this has different content and was a delight to read. I love the statement about keepong in “control”- when so many people in the “new age” arena decry control as being bad.
    I don’t think I’m too bad in that area, but I like to ensure that things are done correctly and on time – makes for smooth running. I hope I don’t fail too badly with the rest.
    I’ve been accused on not as happy or kind as I should be – but how do I know except by what I’m told 😦 Anyway, as great to read. Thank you for the post, Im going to keep it
    this close to me so I can refreshs my thinking as I go through the day – if that is alright with you?

    • Hi Susan,

      _/\_ I bow to you my friend because I know you have love in your heart and I know you are on the right track with your life, you and only you can control your life and your pathway. Happiness is seen in different ways, it does not mean if your not smiling all the time, laughing, jumping for joy then you are not happy because we all have very different ways of enjoying and showing our happiness both personally from within and externally that our friends and family see. Also kindness, what does that actually mean? If you hold out your had to someone in need, is that kindness? If you donate some money to a worthy cause, is that kindness? If you shelter a animal, is that kindness? or if you devote your life to making a difference in our world by blogging, is that kindness? Its very subjective and I have no doubts you are a kind person so why worry?

      Blessings to you Susan, may you be blessed with love, happiness, kindness and compassion 🙂
      Namaste with love

  • I think I failed little on the part about pleasing others. I think I do that a little too often, but I have asked myself many times if I do it because I need their approval so badly, but I have come to the conclusion that it is not that. I just can’t bear to see people sad, unhappy or disappointed! It hurts more than if I get sad, because I feel that I can handle the sadness, but when I see other people feeling sad, then it just breaks my heart, so I please people maybe a little too often so that I can see them smile. because then I become happy. But I certainly don’t please people at any coast, not if they are mean or anything like that, or ask me to do something that is not good. A inspirational and thought-provoking post!! Thank you!!
