How To Stay Mentally Strong During Life’s Toughest Challenges

by Conscious Reminder

We should all face the fact that every one of us goes through tough times in life. Notably, the mental strength of every person is going to be challenged, and at times when it will not be that strong, they are going to experience stress, self-doubt, and tension.

This is going to lead them to think negatively, and that negativity is going to result in negative behaviors and feelings. In order to save ourselves from such negativity times, we have to follow the below presented ABC formula.

“A”: Accept reality.

When we accept something, it doesn’t mean that we agreed with it, but it actually means that we accepted it, after we observed it from the more realistic point of view. For instance, we may oppose racism, but we need to accept that it actually exists. Hence, when we accept reality, it also involves the identification of things which are under our control, and even control ourselves after we accept that there are things which we are not able to control, they are not in our hands.

“B”: Behave productively.

When we finally accepted our reality, we have to do much better at managing our emotions and thoughts which are probably going to make us behave productively. When we make the right decision, we are going to be able to solve issues more quickly and easily. We have to ensure that we avoid seeking complaining and pity, as these two things will make it quite impossible, or difficult to maintain our mental strength as well.

“C”: Control our upsetting thoughts.

When we let ourselves to think of distributing some things too much, it will just allow all that negativity to hold us back. In order to avoid that, we have to create our mantra and repeat it during hard times. So, this is also going to help us tune in positive things and also tune out the negative ones.

To build mental strength looks a lot like to make physical muscle. We first have to become strong, so that we can utilize the strength later in life. On the other hand, when we don’t become strong first, the strength is not going to be there at the time we have to utilize it. It is simply like exercising regularly so we can build our physical muscle, which means that we have to exercise mentally on a regular basis too, so that we can build our mental strength, or even learn to bring in positivity and get rid of negativity.

Extra tips:

Acceptance: We should not complain about those things which are not under our control;

Control: We should not give our powers to other people;

Emotional stability: We should stay objective despite everything;

Perspective: We have to learn to see the things from the right perspective;

Preparation for taking challenges: We have to be sure that we are prepared to accept challenges. We should also have the needed resources in order to withstand crises which we will probably face sometimes;

Focus: We have to be focused on permanent outcomes;

Self-validation: We have to try to validate ourselves;

Patience: Everything too good requires us to be patient, hard-working, and to endure;

Contentment: We should stop our jealousy to the family, partner, or house and car of other people. Instead, we should be thankful for those things we have;

Tenacity: And finally, we should never give up.
