As we seek to delve into the MindHacks we can use to develop a resilient mental strength, I’ll like to say this first and foremost:
Controlling the 3 Edge of the Mental Strength Triangle (MST) of Thoughts, Emotions and Actions is the shortcut to Develop impressive mental strength.
1. Live in Habitual Gratitude:
By swapping self pity for gratitude you fortify your mind against negative vibes and energies or frequencies that sap our your Mental strength and destroy your mind power. The best way to waste your time and ultimately your life is to habitually engage in the destructive habit of self pity.
Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the non-pharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality. —JOHN GARDNER
The power of self-pity is that it ultimately consumes you and alter your thoughts, attitudes (emotions) and eventually your actions.
YOU CAN CHOOSE TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR ATTITUDE.
Feeling sorry for yourself in any condition and situation is self destructive.
The Master Key to Living a Habitual Life of Gratitude is to make it a point of utmost legendary duty to see and affirm the good in the world and you’ll begin to appreciate the things you have.
2. Get A Firm Grip On Your Personal Power:
You need to learn how to stand up for yourself and draw the line (defend your honor) wherever and whenever necessary. This singular action done out of a love based, balanced and matured demeanor yet firm, reinforces your personal power.
When you give away your personal power, your emotions (how you feel per time) is regulated by others than you. Others become what I call your ERB (Emotions Regulatory Body). How they behave or don’t behave dictates how you feel or don’t feel per time. When things are going well you feel good but when challenges arise, you lose your grip on the 3 Edge of MST – Your thoughts become toxic, your emotions go haywire and its all reflected in dis-empowering attitudes.
When we hate our enemies, we are giving them power over us: power over our sleep, our appetites, our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness. —DALE CARNEGIE
By becoming highly sensitive to criticism, losing sight of your vision/goals, and feeling ultimately helpless which leads to avoiding the real problems are all symptoms of not getting a firm grip on your personal power.
Have confidence in who you are and believe in yourself and self worth without becoming obnoxious.
Evaluate why you’re thinking your thoughts, feeling the way you’re feeling and acting the way you act. Are they empowering or not? Change your language and word frame. Use Empowering words like I can and I will and I choose…
Choose Proactiveness over Reactiveness by thinking before your React.
Analyse any feedbacks you receive (negative or positive).
Choose to forgive individuals regardless of whether they seek to change or not and be willing to examine feedback and criticism without jumping to conclusions.
