Your mental strength has a lot to do with how you react to what’s going on around you. We all have things going on around us, in our worlds, and there will always be change, whether it’s forced change or change that we want to promote. How we deal with this and how we react to it is a big part of our mental strength.
Now, some things we can control and some things we can’t. The things we can control are what we should worry about. The things we can’t control are just out of our control. We can’t control our circumstances that we’re in now, but we can control where they’re heading. So, if you’re in an unfortunate circumstance, if something goes wrong or doesn’t go your way, don’t feel sorry for yourself. That’s just where you’re starting.
Where you go from there is what’s important, and your mental strength will help you get there. Something to always remember is the acronym WIN – What’s Important Now. It will help you focus on what’s most important, and it will also help you focus on what’s in your control: mental toughness.
