It may surprise you, but intelligence only accounts for a small percentage of your achievement. Research is starting to reveal that mental toughness, or “grit”, plays a more important role than anything else for achieving your goals in life.

Mentally strong people are committed to engaging in habits of success, and they are effectively able to manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

Mental strength is the foundation for success. Everyone has the ability to build it. Just like a muscle, you need to strengthen it.

Commit to learning how to identify the common pitfalls that you are prone to falling into, so that you can master your mind and become the best version of yourself.

Here are 5 things mentally strong people won’t do.

1. They will not indulge in past failures or mistakes.

Failure is a normal part of life. Whatever goal you are trying to achieve, you will make mistakes and you will fail.

A mentally strong person is able to learn from their mistakes and use them as fuel to propel them forward. They don’t view setbacks as failures, but rather, as opportunities to learn and become more.

Alternatively, a weak person is unable to bounce back from failure. They usually associate a lot of pain to their setbacks and tend to make a big deal out of things that are out of their control.

They are afraid to take a leap of faith and try something new, for fear that they will fail. As a result, they remain in their comfort zone.

If you failed in the past, it’s time to let it go. The past is history.

Your failures will not determine your future unless you allow them to. In the words of Tony Robbins, “The past does not equal the future.”

Shift your mindset and look for the positive in every experience. Don’t dwell on your problems in life. Focus on what you have control over and move on!

2. They will not feel sorry for themselves.

Mentally strong people take ownership and responsibility for their choices in life, whereas weak people create stories and play the role of victim. They blame others’ and external circumstances for their shortcomings in life.

As a result, these people end up holding onto their problems and carry this baggage with them into the future.

Alternatively, mentally strong people recognize that the sooner that you take responsibility for your life, the happier and healthier you become.

Research shows that positive emotions may actually make us healthier.

According to Dr. Laura Kubzansky, a professor of human health and development at Harvard School of Public Health, individuals with great emotional vitality have a much lower risk of developing heart disease, compared to the less emotionally expressive.

Don't be a victim of your circumstances. Pick yourself up, dispel negative emotions, and take responsibility for your life.

As Viktor Frankl famously said, “When we can't change the outcome, we are challenged to change ourselves.”

3. They don't surround themselves with negative people.

Negative people can suck the life out of you, draining your emotional and mental energy. This is why mentally strong people are conscious of who they surround themselves with.

The fact of the matter is, who you spend time with is who you become. Are your friends elevating you or bringing you down? If it’s the latter, it’s time to find new friends.

Weak people allow toxic energy to come into their lives because they are unable to develop healthy boundaries. Study after study shows that negativity has a drastic impact on your physical, mental, and financial well-being.

Alternatively, mentally strong people do not tolerate second class behaviour or negativity. They know when to put the line in the sand, and have the ability to say no when someone is not serving their highest self.

4. Mentally strong people don’t judge themselves or others.

Mentally strong people don't get caught up in drama. They refuse to indulge in the act of speaking less about themselves or others. They look for the good in everything and everybody.

Norman Vincent Peale said it best – “When you expect the best, you release a magnetic force in your mind which by a law of attraction tends to bring the best to you.”

If you are wondering why your life might be challenging right now, look at where you are focusing your thoughts. If you focus on the bad and constantly complain, you WILL attract more of that into your life.

Research from Stanford University has shown that complaining shrinks the hippocampus, an area of the brain that’s critical to problem solving and intelligent thought.

Be conscious of the words that you speak. They have the power to shape your reality.

5. Mentally strong people aren’t lazy.

Mentally strong people are disciplined and committed to everything that they do. They aren’t focused on instant gratification and pleasures. Rather, they are always looking forward and thinking long-term.

Alternatively, weak people struggle with discipline of any kind, because they haven't been able to master their mindset and emotions. They live in their comfort zones and, as a result, fail to grow.

Everything you desire in life is outside of your comfort zone. Studies show that stepping out of your comfort zone leads to greatly increased productivity, creativity, and the ability to cope with unexpected changes.

When there is a challenge or crisis in their lives, mentally strong people rise up and take action.

Being productive and disciplined is a habit, which is why I'm a big fan of morning ritualsWhen you start off the day doing things that are proactive it sets you up for success, which translates into every area of your life.

These are 5 things mentally strong people won’t do. Don’t be a dabbler. Condition your mind every day, develop healthy habits, and commit to mastery.
