A difficult thing for many, because they have taught us to always say “yes”, since, otherwise, we will be considered rude and unpleasant people. Our eagerness for approval prompts us to always say “yes”.

Mentally strong people know that every failure brings an experience,  and that an experience is a new way to know what we did well, what we didn’t, and what we need to do to move forward.

There is no success without failure; without failure we tire, without failures we trust ourselves too much  and we could reach our goal realizing that what we did was not good or was not as satisfying as we hoped.

3. Their happiness does not depend on others

We believe that to be happy, others must be happy too and, even worse, that our happiness always depends on others. This is a serious mistake. Your happiness is yours alone and if you allow it to depend on others, you will see yourself overwhelmed by a back and forth of emotions  that will only make you feel unhappy and frustrated. Happiness is within you. Haven’t you figured it out yet? Look for it!

4. They draw positive lessons from negative events

Mentally strong people know that something positive can always be drawn from any negative event. That something is right there, but you can’t see it. Open your eyes, from negative things you learn, and thanks to them you go forward.

5. They face fears

They know that fear is also an emotion, which paralyzes if we allow it to invade us. For this, mentally strong people face fear and use it in their favor. Through it, they face and overcome all the aspects they fear, they put themselves to the test! And so they become strong, mentally powerful.

7. They trust their abilities

We are human and at any moment our trust can be questioned or destroyed. Are you sure you can do what you want? Emotionally intelligent people always trust themselves  and don’t allow anything or anyone to crush their trust. Self-confidence is important if you want to be strong.
