Kashiff Khan Insights On Mentally Resilient People
Mentally strong people have healthy cognitive and emotional habits. They manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours in a way that sets them up for success in life. Here are some of the things I avoid doing that have helped me become the entrepreneurial person I am today.
- THEY DON’T WASTE TIME FEELING SORRY FOR THEMSELVES
Mentally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn’t always easy or fair
2. THEY DON’T GIVE AWAY THEIR POWER
They don’t allow others to control them, and they don’t give someone else power over them. They don’t say things like, “My boss makes me feel bad,” because they understand that they are in control over their own emotions, and they have a choice in how they respond. Moreover, they recognize they don’t need to please everyone all the. They are not afraid to say no or speak up when necessary. They strive to be kind and fair but can handle other people being upset if they didn’t make them happy.
3. 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 in life is their attitude.
4. THEY DON’T FEAR TAKING RISKS
They don’t take reckless or foolish risks, but that doesn’t mean they mind taking clever and calculated risks. Mentally strong people spend time weighing the risks and benefits before making a big decision, and they’re fully informed of the potential downsides before they take action. They learn which risks will benefit their business and which won’t and learn to go for it. Everyone who has ever achieved success has taken a risk.
5. THEY DON’T GIVE UP AFTER THEIR FIRST FAILURE
They 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. Whether they are working on improving their health or getting a new business off the ground, mentally strong people don’t expect immediate results. Instead, they apply their skills and time to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time.
6. 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.
7. THEY DON’T FEEL THE WORLD OWES THEM ANYTHING
Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts, and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time. Additionally, they don’t feel the world owes them anything. They don’t feel entitled to things in life. They weren’t born with a mentality that others would take care of them or that the world must give them something. Instead, they look for opportunities based on their own merits.
8. THEY DON’T RESENT OTHER PEOPLE’S SUCCESS
Mentally strong people can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life. They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.
9. THEY DON’T DWELL ON THE PAST
Mentally strong people don’t waste time dwelling on the past, and wishing things could be different. They acknowledge their past and can say what they’ve learned from it. However, they don’t constantly relive bad experiences or fantasize about the glory days. Instead, they live for the present and plan for the future.
10. THEY DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES
They 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.
