How To Be Mentally Strong With 10 Steps

We have been through so much in life that we start to think it’s not worth it. Believe me, your life IS worth it no matter what the obstacles and wars you’ve been dealing with.

The good days will come, even though it doesn’t seem like they will. You just have to go through a lot before your life gets easier. You can read stories of people who went through a lot and succeed in life. If they can do it, then so can you. I'll show you steps on how to become mentally strong.





1. IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S THEM.
Bad people hurt other people because they hate themselves so much that they project their self-hate on someone else who has a light in them. They can’t stand anyone who feels good while they feel miserable. They feed their ego by hurting other people. It’s not because something is wrong with you, it’s because something is wrong with them.


2. DON'T BE HARD ON YOURSELF.
Life is a test and a lesson for us to learn. We have been put on test to see how we would react to every problem and struggle we face. Don’t feed the problems with bad reactions. Don’t respond to the problem at all and seek the solution to the problem.

3. WHEN THEY SAY NO, YOU SAY YES.
It’s not their decision and opinion that should shape your future goals. We won’t grow if we let others decide for us. Take a different road in life and prove how wrong they are. Defeat the obstacles. Stop listening to what they think and believe. Listen to your own inner voice that believes in you.

4. GAIN SOCIAL SUPPORT.
You need someone around you who are on your team. Get out of the home and seek believers who align with your mindset and attitude in life. Grow a tribe together and support each other. The more you are in a tribe, the better it is. It’s healthy for your mind to be around someone who helps lift your confidence and talk about all the things you have been holding to yourself. This is extremely important, believe me.

5. TAKE A WALK.
Cities and technologies have disconnected us from nature. Take a break, you deserve it. Nature does wonders in calming your mind and surrender to nature. Gain some inspiration while taking a walk. Look around you and listen to the sound of God in nature. You start to feel less alone and one with nature.


6. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
When your negative family and friends don't believe in you, then start believing in yourself. Feel grateful that there is at least 1 person who believes in you, and that’s the inner voice inside you, who’s your own best friend. That voice believes in you more than anyone else. Trust your instinct and defeat the other negative voice inside you who tricks you into hating yourself.

7. TEMPORARY PROBLEM.
Every problem we experience in our life is a temporary problem, even though it feels like the problems are gonna stay with us for the rest of our lives. It’s not gonna stay with you for the rest of your life. The storm will pass and the sunshine will appear.

8. CRY IT OUT.
Crying doesn’t mean you’re weak, it shows your inner strength that went through many battles and still endures the upcoming war. To all the men and women out there, you’re not less of a man or woman if you cry. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to not be okay. Crying helps us to feel better afterward and try again after dusting ourselves off.

9. FOCUS ON YOUR PASSION.
What makes you happy? What do you like to do? If you don’t know what your passion is, then work hard on it. Be better at your passion today, than you were yesterday. Promote your passion in the audience and start making money. If you want freedom and independence then you need to make money so you won’t rely on your negative family and friends. Remember to not equal money to happiness. Happiness is inside you.


10. STAY IN A QUIET MOMENT.
Light up an incense or candle if you have them. Stay in a dark room, and quiet your mind for at least 10 minutes like I do. Make it a daily habit. It’s a way to cleanse your mind from all the garbage you’ve been filling your mind into. Notice your behavior the upcoming days after doing this routine a ritual for at least 1 week. If I want to escape from this troubling world, I would quiet my mind and wander into stillness.

Again, don’t listen to people’s opinion of you, unless they give you constructive criticism and correction, that helps you to grow and evolve into a better person. They don’t do this to hurt you, but because they care enough to see you grow.
Stop listening to people who make you feel so bad about yourself. They’re so miserable in their own lives that they project their miserableness to other people. You need to step up and become better than them.





Stand up for yourself, even if you’re shaking. We are fearful of the unknown, but once we reply back, we often see it’s not as bad as it is.

Say:
“I am not a victim, I am a survivor. “
