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.

Another Dawn, Another Day and Shanghai Wakes

Published 02/03/2014 by inspiringyourspirit


The sun’s broken free from it shroud in the clouds
It’s rays of golden light cascading down on me through my window
The warmth gently caressing my skin and it’s godly goodness energizing my soul
Giving me strength, compassion and hope for yet another day

The pollution is lifting so I can breathe; my lungs filling with air like an air balloon rising
My heart pumping ever stronger with a beat, beat, beat
Fueling my body, every organ, every muscle, every cell invigorated with gods blessings
Waking me up and bringing me to my senses

My eyes are opening like a flower to a Bee, looking, really looking to see what surrounds me,
Buildings rising like a Phoenix from the ashes, mountains of dust filling the air, with a clanging and thumping of metal on metal
Cranes lifting higher and higher, rising up to the heavens making way for ivory towers of ‘Face’ in the sky
Whilst bulldozers are clearing away the memories of China past and history from another day

People passing, chasing their dreams, some walking some running, car after car like ants in a line
Heads down, no eye contact, texting away, talking aloud and shouting ’Wei’
No time for smiles the rush hour is on
Horns blaring, there’s no time to wait, bicycles jostling like horses at the starters gate

Progress bringing wealth and gadgets galore, Pizza Hut, KFC, McDonald’s and a Walmart store
Houses and cars, the wedding, One baby and more
Progress is here to stay, trapping us in for one more day
I sigh, I frown and I’m sad to say; progress is here but its wiped all the smiles away

Namaste with Love

Progress, when and where did it all go wrong!

Published 20/02/2014 by inspiringyourspirit


We all want progress in our lives,
we need it to drive us forward to a better way of living,
new technology brings us greater efficiencies and economies of scale,
but progress is not always great,
it can bring about sadness,
poverty for some and riches for others,
it can stamp out communication abilities whilst increasing our connections,
it can bring about loneliness whilst making more cyber friends,
it can take us away from nature but bring us more pictures
…where will it end and will it be Progress for all and will it include our environment?

Just a thought!

Namaste with Love
