Mentally Strong - Persist, Expect to fail, know success is earned and embrace solitude

Today I share the remaining four things mentally strong people don't do, they don't - give up, fear solitude, expect immediate results or feel the world owes them. Check out my previous posts for more on this topic.

Mentally strong people don't give up they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They know that failure is almost always and obstacle to overcome and they are willing to keep trying until they get it right. Just imaginehow different the world would be without the Dr Seuss or Harry Potter books, the light bulb, the laptop or even smartphones - despite many 'failures' they never gave up.

Mentally strong people aren't uncomfortable with silence or being alone with their thoughts, they use the downtime time to be productive, be creative, restore balance, and increase empathy.

Mentally strong people don't expect immediate results instead they apply their skills and time to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time. They apply this balance keeping their eye on their long-term goals and being relentless in their pursuit.

Finally mentally strong people don't believe the world owes them anything. Instead, they look for opportunities based on their own merits. They know life isn't fair and that comparing themselves to others only leads to disappointment and frustration. Morin (the author of 13 things mentally strong people don't do) says: The key is to focus on your efforts, accept criticism, acknowledge your flaws, and don't keep score.

Metally strong people have high levels of change fitness.
