Strong people: the 13 things they avoid

Despite the time managers spend on physical strength and health, mental strength can mean even more. For entrepreneurs in particular, many articles speak of the critical features of mental strength – perseverance, “courage,” optimism, and unwavering ability, such as David Williams, Forbes’ contributor, “fails.”

But we can also define mental strength by identifying things that mentally strong people do not do. Over the weekend, I was impressed with this list by Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and certified clinical social worker who shared her with LifeHack. That impressed me enough. I would also like to share his list with his reflections on how each of these elements applies in particular to entrepreneurs.

1. A waste of time, to repent of yourself. They do not see that psychologically strong people apologize for their situation or stay in the way they were abused. They have learned to take responsibility for their actions and outcomes, and have an inherent understanding of the fact that life often lives is not right. They are able to emerge from difficult circumstances with self-esteem and gratitude for learned lessons. When a situation goes awry, they respond with phrases like “OK” or maybe just “Next!”

2. Give her power. Strong people avoid giving others the power to feel inferior or bad. They understand that they control their actions and emotions. They know that their strength lies in how they react.

3. Aversion to change. Strong people accept change and look forward to challenges. Their biggest “fear” when they have one is not the unknown, but to become complacent and stagnant. An environment of change and even insecurity can empower a mentally strong person and enable them to do their best.

4. Do not waste energy on things that you can not control. Very mentally retarded people do not complain (much) about bad traffic, loss of luggage, or especially about other people, because they realize that all these factors are usually beyond their control. In a bad situation, they realize that the only thing they can always control is their own reaction and attitude, and they use those attributes well.

5. Worrying to make others happy. Do you know people who like it? Or conversely, people who do their best not to please others in order to strengthen their image of strength? None of these positions is good. A mentally strong person wants to be friendly and just and to please others, if at all, without fear of speaking. You can resist the possibility of someone becoming angry and coping with the situation as much as possible with grace.

6. Fear of calculated risks. A mentally strong person is willing to take calculated risks. It’s a completely different matter than falling headlong into crazy risks. However, with mental rigidity, an individual can weigh the risks and benefits and fully assess the potential disadvantages or even the worst scenarios before taking action.

7. Stay on the past. Recognizing the past and, above all, recognizing lessons learned from previous experiences is important – but a mentally strong person can avoid imitating his mental energy in past disappointments or fantasies of “rest days”. “Gone are investing most of their energy in creating an optimal present and future.

8. Repeat the same mistakes over and over again. We all know the definition of madness, right? It is when we repeatedly take the same measures and hope for a different and better result than before. A mentally strong person takes responsibility for past behavior and is willing to learn from mistakes. Research shows that the ability to reflect accurately and productively is one of the greatest strengths of executives and entrepreneurs, leading to spectacular success.

9. Feel the success of others. It takes strength of character to feel real joy and excitement about the success of others. Strong people have this ability in their heads. They do not become jealous or vindictive when others succeed (though they can take accurate notes about what the person did well). They are ready to work hard to have their own chances of success without resorting to shortcuts.

10. Give up after the failure. Every failure is a chance to improve. Even the biggest entrepreneurs are ready to admit that their early efforts have always led to many failures. Strongly-minded people are willing to fail again and again if necessary, as long as the learning experience of any “failure” can bring them closer to their ultimate goals.

11. Fear only time. Strong people love and appreciate the time they spend alone. They use their downtime to think, plan and be productive. More importantly, they are not dependent on others to consolidate their happiness and mood. You can be happy with others and you can be happy alone.

12. Feel that the world owes nothing to them. Especially in today’s economy, executives and employees at all levels recognize that the world owes them no reward, benefits and a comfortable life, regardless of their preparation and training. Strong people enter the world, ready to work and succeed at every stage of the game.

13. Expect immediate results. Whether it’s training, dieting or starting a business, people with high intellectual abilities are “in the long run”. They know better than waiting for immediate results. They spend their energy and time dosed and celebrate each important step and each increase in their success. You have the power to stay. And they understand that real change takes time. Do you have mental strength? Are there any items in this list that you need more? With my thanks to Amy Morin, I would like to further strengthen my own skills in each of these areas. And you?
