We often come across discussions regarding physical strength. But what is never or very rarely discussed is mental strength. Since, mental strength cannot be ‘seen’ like physical strength, it is difficult to gauge its levels as well.
We have seen people, even siblings, getting the same education and opportunities, and yet one outshines all the rest. Many people call it luck. But this is not true. If we compare people with the same capabilities and opportunities, the ones with the strongest minds will win. This is what differentiates the winners from the rest. Mental strength is the ability to maintain positive outlook towards life in the most unfavourable circumstances, keeping your emotions composed, having a positive approach towards all the negativities going around you and not deviating from the path that leads you to your definition of success. Developing mental strength is about sticking to your values, keeping your will power strong and not losing hope. It is your struggle to making your life beautiful. Mental strength is not only limited to having a strong will power, it also means the strength of your commitment towards your work and a promise to yourself of not giving up. It involves choosing what is good and beneficial for you and prioritizing aspects of your life that can lead you to success, fulfilment and happiness. It is best to prepare yourself for times where your mental strength can and will be challenged.
Many factors can influence the development of mental strength.
