1. You balance emotion and logic
You can't make good decisions without some emotion, but you can't make good decisions with too much emotion either. The truly resilient strike the right balance.
2. You feel confident you can adapt to change
Change is a constant. That reality doesn't stress out the truly mentally strong.
3. You face your fears
Everyone has fears and not every one of them needs to be conquered, but the very resilient among us strive to face the fears that hold them back.
4. You learn from your mistakes.
Don't justify them. Don't hide from them. Learn from them. That's what mentally strong people do.
5. You balance self-acceptance with self-improvement
Mentally strong people accept themselves for who they are, while simultaneously recognizing their need for personal development.
Take care of yourself.
Your relationship with yourself is the closest and most important relationship you will ever have. If you don’t take good care of yourself, then you can’t take good care of others either; which is why taking care of yourself is the best selfish thing you can do.
Do what you know is right, for YOU.
Don’t be scared to walk alone, and don’t be scared to like it. Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, drama, or negativity stop you from being the best you can be. Keep doing what you know in your heart is right, for you. Because when you are totally at peace within yourself, nothing can shake you.
Lock yourself away from the world and work on your goals.
Dream big dreams, but realize that short term, realistic goals are the key to success. Success is directly connected with daily action. The way we spend our time defines who we are. Successful people keep moving, by doing small things every day that bring them a couple steps closer to their dream. They make mistakes along the way, but they don’t quit – they learn and press on.
