the mentally strong

How well are you at managing your thoughts and emotions?  Are you mentally strong?

Don’t know or don’t have answers?  Here’s an article that might help:

“12 Things Mentally Strong People Do That Nobody Else Does” –

It was a fun and intriguing read for me because I had a chance to reflect on my own mental strength.  Like most, good in some areas, needs work in others.

Here are a few of the areas I feel mentally strongest:

  • Practicing gratitude.
  • Delaying gratification.
  • Acknowledging my limitations (which for me translates to showing vulnerability).

Here are the areas that needs work:

  • Overcoming my inner critic.
  • Lacking my own definition of success.
  • Saying no (except to my wife – not good).

Doing okay in the other areas, but could improve.

So, what about you?  What areas are good?  What needs work?

Pick one that needs work, then ask yourself, “What am I going to do about it?”

Get to work!
