As the author of "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do," I usually spend my time talking about the bad habits that can rob you of mental strength. After all, it only takes one bad habit to hold you back from reaching your greatest potential.
In addition to giving up those bad habits, however, it's also important to perform exercises that build your mental muscle. With hard work and dedication, you can train your brain to perform at your peak.
Here are 18 things mentally strong people do.
1. They practice gratitude
2. They retain their personal power
Mentally strong people don't give negative people power over them. They refuse to blame anyone for holding them back or dragging them down.
3. They accept challenges
Mentally strong people view adversity as an opportunity to grow stronger. With each obstacle they overcome, they gain confidence in their ability to become better.
