"20 Things That Mentally Strong People Don't Do"

1. Remaining In Their Comfort Zone

The comfort zone is a dangerous place, a dark abyss where anyone who remains there for too long loses his or herself entirely.

Staying within your comfort zone is giving up on life.
2. Dwelling On The Past

Mentally strong individuals focus on the present moment and on the near future.

They understand that the past is out of our control and the far future is about as predictable as the weather this winter.
3. Not Listening To The Opinions Of Others

just if someone has great advice to give, take it.
4. Avoiding Change

What the mentally strong understand is that change is unavoidable.

Trying to avoid the inevitable is pointless.
5. Keeping A Closed Mind

You don’t know everything. Even the things you believe yourself to know are likely to not be entirely true.

If you keep a closed mind, you are preventing yourself from learning new material. If you stop learning, you stop living.
6. Letting Others Make Decisions For Them

Only u should be making your own decisions; u can’t allow others to make them for u.
All this does is shift the responsibility from u to someone else.

If u don’t have the courage to fail, then you don’t have the courage to succeed.
7. Getting Jealous Over The Successes Of Others

When others succeed, you should be happy. If they can do it, so can you.

The success of others does not, in any way, lessen the chances of you succeeding.
8. Thinking About The High Possibility Of Failure

Our thoughts control our perspective; our perspective controls our results.
The mentally strong use this to their advantage. There’s always the chance u may fail, but as long as there is the chance u may succeed, it’s worth it.
9. Feeling Sorry For Themselves

Sh*t happens. Life isn’t all roses and butterflies. You will fall off that horse again and again and again.

The question is, are you strong enough to keep getting back on it?
10. Focusing On Their Weaknesses

Although working on our weaknesses does have its benefits, it’s more important to focus on banking on our strengths.
11. Trying To Please People

A job well done is a job well done, no matter who is judging the final product.

You can’t please everybody.
12. Blaming Themselves For Things Outside Their Control

The mentally strong know the things they can control, understand the things they cannot control, and avoid even thinking about that which is completely out of their hands.
13. Being Impatient

Most people don’t fail because they aren’t good enough, or aren’t capable of winning or succeeding.

Most people fail because they are impatient and give up before their time has come.
14. Being Misunderstood

When it comes to people, things get a bit more complicated.

Simply stating information is never enough.

The mentally strong do their best to be understood and have the patience to clear up misunderstandings.
15. Feeling Like You’re Owed

You aren’t owed anything in life.
You were born; the rest is up to you.

Life doesn’t owe you anything.
If you want something in life, you only owe it to yourself to go out and get it.
16. Giving Into Their Fears

The world can be a scary place.
But Most of our fears are illogical.

If you know that you want to try something, try it.

If you’re scared, then understand that being scared of failing must mean that succeeding means a whole lot to you.
17. Acting Without Calculating

The mentally strong know better than to act before completely understanding the situation at hand.

If you have time to ponder over something and cover all your bases, then do so.
Not doing so is pure laziness.
18. Refusing Help From Others

You’re not Superman.
You can’t do it all.

Even if you can, why should you? If others are offering to help, let them help.

Be social.
Listen to their ideas and watch how they do things.
You may learn something.
19. Throwing In The Towel

The biggest weakness in all of humanity is giving up.

The mentally strong go about things in such a way.
If they’re important to you, then pursue them until you succeed.
No exceptions, ever.
20. Repeating Mistakes

Make a mistake once, okay. Make a mistake twice… not so okay.

Make the same mistake a third time, you may need to consider giving up alcohol and drugs.

You’re either stupid or permanently high.
You live your life on auto pilot because you don't know what to do with your life.

"If you have anxiety, read this"

Nothing is as chaotic as it seems.
Nothing is worth your health.
Nothing is worth poisoning yourself into stress, anxiety, and fear.

Smile, breathe and go slowly.
We suffer more often in imagination that in reality.

"The 12 Laws of Karma Everyone Should Know"

Karma = action

1. The Great Law or The Law of Cause & Effect

As you sow, so shall you reap.

To receive happiness, peace, love, and friendship, one must BE happy, peaceful, loving, and a true friend.
