Being human is not an experience for the faint-hearted. By virtue of the fact that you are alive, you will be faced with a number of different challenges. There are births, deaths, marriages, heartbreaks, calamities, job losses and a number of other things that you will have to be mentally strong about in this lifetime. This may sound like a grim picture. But actually, it is not. It is a very realistic picture of the kinds of challenges that a person will be faced with in one lifetime.
In order to live this life. You will need a little more than saccharine sweetness to get you through the woods. Motivational speakers, though valuable, are not always there to walk you through your challenges. Once you log off their talks on YouTube, you will still be faced with reality.
In our growing years, we would have been received the foundation of our inner resources from our parents or primary caregivers. But there comes a time in life when you will need to light your own fires of inspiration, put steel into your backbone and drive your own life forward.
You will need to be mentally strong…

Being mentally strong is:
Mental strength like anything worth having is built over time and with practice. Mental strength comes from the habits and behaviours that you engage in on a daily basis. There are some surprising ways in which you can build this.
There is a deep and abiding power that exists in being mentally strong. But it is important to remember that mental strength comes from awareness and dedicated practice. No one method is foolproof, you will have to find what suits you and your lifestyle and apply that. Think of the mind power that you build as a resource that will keep your head above water in all instances in life.
