Mental toughness or strength is a part of ourselves that needs progressive development.
You aren’t the same person you were 5 years ago, nor will you be the same person you are 5 years from now.
That’s why you must develop your mental and emotional toughness with time.
Our lives keep changing:
- We lose people and meet new ones.
- Leave a job and adapt to the new one.
- Move to a new town where we feel secure and content.
You can’t solve or face the problem you have right now with the mindset you had 5 years ago.
The problems and difficulties you are dealing with now are much more complex and difficult, requiring a new mindset.
Mental toughness can be strengthened and developed by:
- Reading books and quotes
- Being courageous and facing/solving problems
- Working on goals
- Being open-minded and adapting to new changes
People who are mentally and emotionally strong are known
to be more resilient, happier, calmer, and more confident than the average person.
Since your life keeps on changing, it’s a must that you give yourself some time to improve your mental toughness.
Here are the 10 Powerful Quotes that can Strengthen your Mental Toughness:
1. Be yourself. People don’t have to like you and you don’t have to care.
Being liked by everyone is possible only if you are a people pleaser, which is a big problem.
We all know that people pleasers can do anything to be liked by others, even if it means disrespecting themselves.
This is wrong and unhealthy. You will piss off many people and disagree with many if you are going to live the life you truly want.
You may have close and real friends, but you will be at peace with yourself.
That’s why it’s okay if you are not liked by anyone, but that doesn’t mean being a jerk.
2. I may be in pain but I’m not weak.
People always judge those who are in pain as weak, but it’s wrong.
Being in pain doesn’t mean being weak; it means being strong enough to accept the pain and deal with it as a mature person.
This should be your attitude. You are in pain, but not weak enough to give up.
3. Don’t be too confident when someone tells you they like you. The real question is, until when? Because just like seasons, people change.
People hurt themselves deeply by expecting too much from others.
It’s okay when someone tells you they like you, but don’t put too much expectation.
Go on that date and enjoy the moment, but expect less. Because the person who told you they liked you today may wake up tomorrow with a different feeling.
4. I have been fighting since I was a child I’m not a survivor I’m a f*cking warrior.
If you had a tough childhood, be proud of yourself for surviving all these tough years and overcoming tough battles.
You are not a survivor; you are a warrior. Live like a warrior.
5. To be the best, you must be able to handle the worst.
You will encounter many trials in your journey, but it’s because you asked to be the best.
Your journey is difficult because your blessing is greater.
6. You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That’s a part of it.
You wish for a blessing; you have to deal with the problems that come with it.
Almost every blessing has a curse. If you become highly successful, you have to deal with the hatred you will receive.
If you get too attached to someone, you have to deal with overthinking and stupid jealousy.
But if you develop your mental strength, these problems won’t mess up your life.
7. Let them hate. Just make sure they spell your name right.
Keep it real and gangsta. People hating you isn’t your problem; let them hate you.
Keep on working on yourself and achieving your goals. Remember that people will hate you when they don’t have what you have.
Also, people hate annoying people. Don’t be that.
8. If you want to be successful; prepare to be doubted and tested.
Everyone expects the road to success to be straight and safe, but it’s full of failures, blessings, and tough tests.
You have to accept that life will test you in many ways when you want to succeed.
Things won’t go as planned, accidents may happen, and you will experience a loss of motivation.
Being successful is not easy, but it’s possible. These tests will define your mental toughness.
9. You’re weak if you let someone put something in your ear to poison your loyalty to someone who has always been loyal and real with you.
Words are cheap and they can be easily manipulated.
Loyal and real people are rare, if you have one, keep them close and appreciate them.
But you are weak and stupid to let someone who doesn’t know you poison your loyalty.
In most situations, it’s the person who talks badly about people that you must avoid.
A person who will talk bad about others to you will talk bad about you to others.
Never trust this type of person and avoid them if possible.
10. When you truly don’t care what anyone thinks of you, you have reached a dangerously awesome level of freedom.
That’s when you become your most authentic self and live the life that will give you peace.
