"Developing mental strength is about improving your ability to regulate your emotions, manage your thoughts, and behave in a positive manner,despite your circumstances."

"Stop and think for a minute about how you behave when youíre really angry.  Itís likely that youíve said and done some
things that you regretted later, because you were basing your actions on your emotions, not logic."

"Being mentally strong isnít about acting tough. You donít have to become a robot or appear to have a tough exterior
when youíre mentally strong. Instead, itís about acting according to your values."

"Mental strength doesnít require you to ignore your emotions.  Increasing your mental strength isnít about suppressing your
emotions; instead itís about developing a keen awareness of them. Itís about interpreting and understanding how your
emotions influence your thoughts and behavior."

"You donít have to treat your body like a machine to be mentally strong. Mental strength isnít about pushing your body to
its physical limits just to prove you can ignore pain. Itís about understanding your thoughts and feelings well enough that you can determine when to behave contrary to them, and when to listen to them."

making a conscious choice to celebrate lifeís gifts and refusing to behave in a pitiful manner. Instead of pitying ourselves for what we lost, we choose to feel grateful for what we had."

"When you notice self-pity creeping into your life, make a conscious effort to do something contrary to how you feel. You
donít have to jump out of a plane to ward off feelings of self-pity. Sometimes, small behavioral changes can make a big

"Volunteer to help a worthy cause. It will take your mind off your problems and you can feel good that youíve helped support
someone else. Itís hard to feel sorry for yourself when youíre serving hungry people in a soup kitchen or spending time

"If what youíre doing now isnít working, try something new. If you never take a step in the right direction, youíll stay right where you are."

"Whatís another way I could view my situation? This is where the ďglass half empty or glass half fullĒ thinking comes
