Mindset Matters For Mental Toughness
“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” - Confucius
“Mindset Matters”, right? The mind is such a powerful tool and one that is often underutilized by many people. If you are not satisfied with life a change in mindset might be in order to live your best life.
As we navigate the “global pandemic” waters I am hearing more comments about how mindset matters and it is especially vital in tough times. Making changes to live the life you really want may be a challenge however developing a mental toughness will help.
It really is so easy to blame others for not having what you want in life. This really boils down to our outlook and attitude and combined this makes up the level of mental toughness in life. Being tough mentally doesn't mean you are a big person with large muscles!
No, instead it means that you know exactly what you want out of life and are prepared to go after it. You have passion and commitment to do the work necessary.
So how do we develop our attitude, increase our confidence levels and get that mental toughness?
Start by considering the following ideas:
1. Gratitude - Always be grateful for what you do have in your life. Stop concentrating on what you don't have. Negative thinking uses up a ton of energy, so why not put your energy into positive thinking instead? Be grateful for what you have, and I have heard it said there is always something to be grateful for.
2. Connection - You can improve your outlook by surrounding and connecting with positive thinking people. Find people that have the same goals as you and spend time with them. Their positive energy will rub off on you and you will start acting and thinking in a more positive way. Now, right at this moment in time you might say I can’t be with other people. If that is the case find like minded people online and connect with them.
3. Affirmations - Change your mindset by thinking positive thoughts each day. It can help to use positive mindset quotes and affirmations, find ones that you like and start using them daily. Thinking in a positive manner can help to relieve your stress. Stop thinking about things that could go wrong. Instead focus on how they can turn out better than you expected.
4. Nature - Fresh air can really help improve your mind. It is so easy to spend too much time inside at your computer. Make time to get outside and take advantage of the natural sunlight. It can do wonders for your body, mind and spirit.
Consider the one idea above that you can begin right now to improve your mindset. Allow yourself to lean into what you can do to develop the mental toughness necessary to live your best life.
