Becoming Mentally Strong
Avoid self-destructive thoughts. Make better choices. Maintain control. Establish good habits.
1) Unhealthy beliefs about ourselves. This is self-defeating. Control yourself to yesterday's you...
2) Unhealthy beliefs about others. Others do not control us. Do not give away your power. Do not compare yourself with others.
3) Unhealthy beliefs about the world. The world does not owe us anything.
How am I going to get through this? Why does this happen to me?
"The secret to being mentally strong is giving up bad mental habits." You need to amass both positive good habits (like practicing gratitude) and eliminating poor ones (e.g. resenting others' success).
Big changes can start with a small one. Consider what poor habits or beliefs are limiting you and what ONE STEP you can adopt TODAY to improve.
Replace unhealthy beliefs with better ones.
