Many people feel that they are not as emotionally strong as they would like to be. Being aware of our inner strength is frequently the limiting factor in our lives. If we were just a little tougher mentally, we would be willing to try more, and we would accomplish more.
Inner strength makes molehills out of mountains. Every obstacle is less likely to be challenging if you possess a high degree of inner strength.
It is not necessary to be born mentally tough. You can develop this quality within yourself.
Access your inner strength and overcome any obstacle with these techniques:
1. Develop yourself physically.
Inner strength is easier to realize if you are strong in other ways, too.
- Develop your body and mind. Suffering through a challenging workout is a great way to build your mind and body at the same time. With a strong mind and body, you become unstoppable.
2. Develop your ability to focus.
To a large extent, inner strength is the ability to focus on what needs to be done regardless of the circumstances. You cannot just decide to focus and suddenly be good at it. You have spent a lifetime distracting yourself. It takes time to learn to focus well for extended periods of time.
- Keep your attention on whatever you are doing. When your attention floats away, bring it back. Keep doing that until you are good at focusing.
- Meditation is also a powerful way to learn how to focus. A daily meditation practice is worth considering if you are serious about increasing your awareness of inner strength.
3. Make yourself uncomfortable.
You could take a cold shower. Stay up all night. Do yard work. Walk up to strangers and start a conversation. Sing in front of your friends. Dye your hair purple and walk around your neighborhood. Dealing with discomfort is an important part of inner strength.
4. Do difficult things.
Climb a mountain. Run a marathon. Write a book. Go an entire day without speaking. Wake up an hour earlier for the next month. Learn a new language. Memorize 100 digits of Pi.
5. Decide quickly.
Make decisions quickly. It is weak to postpone making decisions just because you do not want to take responsibility for your life. Be responsible but make up your mind and own your decisions. Take responsibility for your life.
6. Take action regularly.
It is not enough to decide. You must do something, too. Avoid falling into the trap of procrastinating or spending too much time learning and planning. Those who access their inner strength, take action.
7. Remember your past accomplishments.
Remind yourself that you have accomplished some impressive things. You have overcome obstacles. You may remember that you are tougher than you thought. Relive those past successes and the obstacles you overcame.
8. Develop an effective attitude.
Tough, positive, action-oriented, diligent, committed, aggressive, disciplined. Are these words you would use to describe yourself? What qualities do you think someone with inner strength possesses? Build these qualities in yourself.
9. Surround yourself with the supportive people.
You are stronger when you surround yourself with strong, supportive people. Negative people will sap your inner strength. Weak people will do the same thing. Surround yourself with the right people, and you will be more capable.
How resilient are you? Are you the toughest person you know? If not, you have some work to do. Not accessing our inner strength is very limiting. Imagine how much more you would do if you could double your access to and dependence upon your inner strength!!
You can become mentally stronger if you are willing to take the appropriate steps. Your life is waiting for you, so do it now!!
