15 Habits Of a Mentally Strong Person

In 1914, the Edison factory was completely destroyed by fire. The fire was so extensive that nothing was left. They lost US$23 million at the time. And a prototype he had been working on for years was burned in the fire.


Edison's mental toughness is called mental toughness. He said, "Thank God, all the mistakes I've made so far have burned out." Now I can start over.

One of the most admirable qualities of a mentally tough person is that he knows how to handle himself even in the most difficult of times. He has a positive attitude.

But the fact is that mentally strong people are not born with mentally strong muscles from childhood; in fact, mental strength is developed through effective habits. And these are the habits that set them apart from others.

We all go through times when life tests our mental toughness. Whether it's an unfulfilling job, parental support, or another major issue, You have to be strong to deal with every phase.

Like a good diet and regular exercise, it strengthens you. Similarly, there are some habits that make a mentally weak person mentally strong.

However, being mentally strong is not as easy as it sounds. Every time you try to change your habits, people around you will either stop you from changing or you will stop working because of your discomfort.

So in this blog post, I will talk about 15 habits that are quite simple. If you practice them, you will soon develop your mental strength.

1: They Embarrassing Change

The only bird that lives up to 70 years is the eagle. However, every eagle at this age must make a very challenging choice to survive. Because an eagle's claws weaken and become less effective after forty years of age, it cannot easily prey on them. In addition, its long, sharp beak is curved and becomes so thick and heavy that an eagle cannot fly.

This is the only time in the forties when Eagle has only two options. Either he dies like that, or he accepts himself for a painful change. In the life of an eagle, this process takes one hundred and fifty days.

And for this process, the eagle has to sit on the top of a mountain and hit its beak on a rock. This is until its beak comes out and falls. And after the beak separates, the eagle waits for the newly formed beak to emerge.

When its beak grows, it pulls out its claws with its sharp and strong beak. And again, it waits for new claws to grow. When its pointed and strong claws come out again, it also scratches its old and thick wings with these claws so that it can develop thinner and lighter ones.

And finally, after these one hundred and fifty days of pain, an eagle takes the first flight of its life. It lives the remaining thirty years of its life.

This means accepting a painful change to survive and live life. Remember that when it rains, all birds look for a place to escape the rain. But the eagle is the only bird that can fly over the clouds instead of avoiding the rain.

This is why even mentally strong people can go through any difficult change and strengthen themselves by accepting it.

2: Sacrifice Their Present For Their Future

Mentally strong people sacrifice their present for their future. Because every mentally strong person knows that if they have fun in their situation, it will ruin their future. Psychologically weak people need everything positive right now. They take pleasure and are afraid of pain. This idea of ​​sacrifice is so deep that the less we discuss it, the less real it is.

Most people never recognize that the real meaning of sacrificing happiness in the present is that you understand time and reality. People who constantly put off significant tasks do not understand time passage and are unaware that their behavior causes mental weakness. And if they want to achieve something in their life, they have to motivate themselves to work.

So always finish the necessary things in your life and reward yourself.


3: Sacrifice Their Present For Their Future

Those who understand human psychology know sacrifice builds resilience, resilience builds strength, strength builds power, and power builds purpose. No purpose can be fulfilled without sacrifice.

You must decide whether to sacrifice junk food, improper habits, or social life. You have to sacrifice to get something. And mentally strong people never shy away from sacrifices.

4: They Establish Boundaries

Remember when was the last time you had to do something that ruined your whole schedule, your whole plan and later you regretted that I wish you had stopped doing that then maybe  You would do well to complete the rest of your work.

Sorry if this happens to you often so you may not be mentally strong yet.  Because a mentally strong person knows its boundaries.

He knows what to say no to and what to say yes to, what conversation he should be part of and what conversation he should not be part of.  What to eat and what not to eat.  A mentally strong person knows all this very well. Meaning a mentally strong person is very selective.

5: They Understand Death Well And Are Not Afraid To Die At All

Most mentally weak people fear death indirectly.  Like either they are afraid to change themselves or they can't really accept.  And a deep understanding of death frees you mentally from so many essus. 

 You have to be very careful with what you are giving your time to activities or people and what problems actually affect your life and what problems to solve is just a waste of time.

  Because you know you have very limited time and one day you will die.  So meditate on your deth and see what you can extract positive from this negative thing.

6: They Always Tell The Truth.

This is the most important habit of becoming mentally strong.  Because lies make you weak.  The more times you lie to others, the more often you are lying to your mental reality.  And you are moving away from your true self.

Most people resort to lies because it would be very painful to face the truth.  Because we form our ego based on our experience and learning, which tells us who we are.

But if at some point we feel that we are probably telling the wrong story about ourselves and lying to ourselves, then that point is a threat to our ego. 

Because the question that comes to our mind is, if you are not what you think you are, then who are you?  This question in itself is enough to kill many false parts of a weak human being.  

And this whole process is necessary for your transformation and your personal growth.

This is why if you want to be mentally strong you have to tell the truth to yourself and others.

7: They Focus Only on Their Life and Their Loved Ones.

Mentally strong people do not waste their mental energy on news, politics, jealousy or any other evil, but they focus on improving their life.

Here we are talking about priorities and one's self-esteem.  Because mentally strong people are very secure in themselves and they don't need anyone's approval.

as a result they don't feel like they need to humiliate anyone in order to feel better about themselves.  So you also pay attention to your phycological problems and solve your problems first instead of taking interest in others life.

8: They Take Responsibility For Their Every Action And Decision

No matter how difficult the situation, every mentally strong person will never say that he is a victim or that his fate has been ruined by another human being.

 Rather, they have a habit of taking responsibility for their every action and decision.  And they never fail to apologize for their problems.

So instead of relying on others, take responsibility for your life and accept whatever action results.  It will also make you mentally strong and mature.

9: They Resort To Routine To Stabilize Their Emotions

Setting goals for the long term and creating daily routines to achieve them is very helpful in increasing your mental strength.  Because when your day is well structured, then your brain has enough capacity to deal with other things.

On the other hand, if you are not using your time efficiently, you are always stuck in the confusion of what you should do in every next moment.  

This confusion negatively influences your decision making, risk taking and your ability to deal with problems and makes you mentally weak.

10: They Feel That Their Life Is Under Their Control.

Having control over one's life is called internal locus of control in psychology.  And research shows that people who feel their fate depends on their own actions and less on heavy circumstances.  

Their phycological well-being is comparable to that of those who believe that they have no control over their life.

So always remind yourself that your every move or decision has the power to make or break your destiny.  With this understanding you will lose more control over your life and you will be able to make yourself mentally strong

11: They Take Care Of Their Physical Health

Here we are talking about seven to eight hours of sleep, regular exercise and a diet full of fruits, vegetables and eggs.  Because the way you treat your body also affects your thinking and your mental capabilities. 

If you are physically fit, you will be able to endure more psychological problems and will not give up easily in any situation.

While a pour diet or sedentary lifestyle makes you physically and mentally weak.  This is the reason why mentally strong people pay as much attention to developing their mental abilities directly as they pay attention to their physical abilities.

12: Mentally Strong People Do Not Run Away From Solitude

Solitude is very important for self awareness.  Without spending some time alone, you do not understand which of all the contradictory thoughts  are going on in your mind are your thoughts and which thoughts you borrowed from the news, your friends, your parents or the society.  

The more you question your thoughts alone, the more you can refine your best possible version.  This is why mentally strong people are not afraid to go into solitude but prefer it from time to time.

13: They Do Not Complain In Difficult Situations But Adapt Themselves

This is the most important habit of today.  Where everything changes so fast.  So people who are afraid of change and can't accept it are left behind.

On the other hand, the mentality of mentally strong people is such that they see change and difficulties as opportunities to grow themselves.  And you can also develop this habit, gradually exposing yourself to new situations.

14: They Live In The Present

Most people live a life full of bitterness, regret or anxiety.  And this bad habit of theirs makes them mentally weak.  Live in your present, you have no choice but to suffer.  Get rid of distractions and get in the habit of focusing on the present.

15: They Create Healthy Boundaries And Have Low Expectations Of Others

Being mentally strong means you don't measure other people's tricks and deceptions because you already have no expectations from them and if they say something bad to you they don't take it personally.
