Now days it is not easy to keep things going. Some of us are working 2 jobs to make ends meet. Over the past almost 2 years we had to reframe how we view life. We hear of people like Tyler Perry's and Steve Harvey's stories of homelessness. How did they do it. The became mentally tough. They kept getting back up every time they were knocked down. They keep fighting even when they are talked about and it looks like the worst possible circumstances. Becoming mentally tough can be learned. Here are some things that mentally tough people do that you can do:

  1. They take responsibility-Mentally strong people do not blame others for their circumstances. To take responsibility for your life, is to take responsibility for your powers of thinking, feeling, speaking and acting. You create your life with your thoughts, feelings, words and actions. You take responsibility when you accept that the thoughts you have, are your thoughts coming from your mind. How you feel happens in your body and is a result of your thoughts. The words you speak come from your mouth and voice. The actions you take, are taken by you. What this means is that nobody can make you think, feel, say or do anything. They do not let other people control them. Nobody can push your buttons, because you are the button maker! In the same way you don’t have control over how other people respond as they respond from their mindset.

  2. They expect many 'rejection' before 'success'-Mentally strong and tough people know that rejections, failures and disappointments are a part of the journey to their goals. They do not let these events disrupt or discourage them. They know it is part of the process to get to where they want to be.

  3. They Do Not Stay In Self-Pity-This is a toxic place to stay in! Self pity lies to you about who you are, and steals from where you can be! Squash self-pity! Stay away from comparing yourself to others. Don't dwell on negative events

  4. They Do Not Let Circumstances Stop Them From Moving Forward- The motivational speaker Brian Tracy said that successful people experience bad events just as much as unsuccessful people. The difference is that successful people prepare for them, take them in stride, and expect them. Don't Let anyone or anything stop you from achieving your goals.

Anybody can can practice mental toughness. Anyone It can be achieved and enjoyed by all but requires intentional practice. So get after it! Resilience is like any muscle. With focus and determination—and some of the habits in this article—you can strengthen your mind to overcome any obstacle, crush goals, dominate your battlefield, and live an extraordinary life.
