Inspiration – things strong people don’t do

Inspiration header


I haven’t done an Inspiration post in a while but I saw this article today – 13 things mentally strong people don’t do – and I thought it was really great.

I particularly like these –

1. They don’t waste energy on things they can’t control

You won’t hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams. Instead, they focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes, the only thing they can control is their attitude.

2. They don’t make the same mistakes over and over.

Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their behavior and learn from their past mistakes. As a result, they don’t keep repeating those mistakes over and over. Instead, they move on and make better decisions in the future.

3. They don’t give up after the first failure.

Mentally strong people don’t view failure as a reason to give up. Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.

4. They don’t shy away from change.

Mentally strong people don’t try to avoid change. Instead, they welcome positive change and are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is inevitable and believe in their abilities to adapt.

Some great advice here. This is my gut check moment I spoke about the other day – breathe, sigh and move on – but in a more uplifted way. It only takes a little wise word sometimes!
