I think almost all of us are on a continuous, life-long journey to find our best selves. Some days, we feel like the world is our feet, and other days, nothing seems to go right. It’s easy to feel lost, and like everybody else seems to have better luck in life.
But if you ask us, the most important ingredient in finding your way in life is to just stay mentally strong, and true to who you are. Fortunately, it’s easy to be yourself when you’re relaxed and happy. The trick is standing strong and staying true to yourself when the whole world seems to want you to act like someone else.
So next time your mom nags you to settle down already, your boss asks you to cut corners, or your best friend tries to pressure you into “just one more drink,” you can just look into yourself and ask, “Is this really who I am?”
It’s not easy to stay tough in the face of external pressure, but being mentally strong is a skill anyone can develop and that you keep for a lifetime, just like riding a bike. Want to see if you already have mentally strong qualities? Scroll through below!
