13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do: Take Back Your Power, Embrace Change, Face Your Fears, and Train Your Brain for Happiness and Success

Expanding on her viral post that has become an international phenomenon, a psychotherapist offers simple yet effective solutions for increasing mental strength and finding happiness and success in life.

As a licensed clinical social worker, college psychology instructor, and psychotherapist, Amy Morin has seen countless people choose to succeed despite facing enormous challenges. That resilience inspired her to write 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do, a web post that instantly went viral, and was picked up by the Forbes website.

Morin’s post focused on the concept of mental strength, how mentally strong people avoid negative behaviors—feeling sorry for themselves, resenting other people’s success, and dwelling on the past. Instead, they focus on the positive to help them overcome challenges and become their best.

In this inspirational, affirmative book, Morin expands upon her original message, providing practical strategies to help readers avoid the thirteen common habits that can hold them back from success. Combining compelling anecdotal stories with the latest psychological research, she offers strategies for avoiding destructive thoughts, emotions, and behaviors common to everyone.

Like physical strength, mental strength requires healthy habits, exercise, and hard work. Morin teaches you how to embrace a happier outlook and arms you to emotionally deal with life’s inevitable hardships, setbacks, and heartbreaks—sharing for the first time her own poignant story of tragedy, and how she summoned the mental strength to move on. As she makes clear, mental strength isn’t about acting tough; it’s about feeling empowered to overcome life's challenges.

[…] 18 Things Mentally Strong People Do […]

Diane Yourie says:

This article should be banned! What exactly does “mentally strong” mean? So if someone is unable to accomplish these 18 things they are mentally WEAK? I happen to have bipolar disorder. One of your 18 magical things is stay happy!! Then next is be kind!! As I type this I am incredulous that this list was written and published. I know I’m not weak. And I’m certain that the millions of others inflicted with this illness are not weak. In fact we may be stronger than the author or anyone who buys this crap. Life is not quite so easy for us. We are the mentally strong ones to be able to hold down jobs, raise families, cultivate friendships, and live productive lives while traveling a roller coaster of ups and downs. And a lot of us accomplish this while keeping our illnesses secret. Many “normal strong minded” people feel a prejudice against those of us with mental illness, so it’s necessary to keep it quiet. I sincerely hope that the author realizes the poor taste shown in this article and that Pinterest followers don’t believe the crap that infographicaday spouts.

You sound like one of the mentally strong people. You don’t sound weak at all. Mentally strong refers more to character rather than IQ, mental health, or such. And you certainly have character.
