Act tough. Why don’t you?
It is easier said than done, of course. Good thing there are ways to have a well-developed mental strength. It takes a lot of dedication and effort, we warn you, but it will be worth it in the end.
We suggest you try the following:
Make an effort to prove yourself wrong.
Spend your energy on proving yourself wrong, not anyone else. Never mind what others think or do not think about. When you begin to doubt yourself, do what you say you cannot do. You would be surprised at how able and capable you are.
Do what you fear the most.
Yes, this is a sound advice. It is the same thing as proving yourself wrong. Are you afraid to travel alone? Do it anyway. Do you dread eating alone? By all means, eat alone. Try doing something you are afraid each day, and you will grow in experience and wisdom.
Stop making excuses.
You have already gone through a lot and you while you are still making mistakes, it is no reason to make excuses. If you must, find out what happened, look for an explanation and figure out what you did wrong. After that, aim to do better and you will.
Vanish your negative thoughts.
Negativity does not take you anywhere, and it sure punctures your thoughts and depletes your self-esteem. Look at the bright side, enjoy the little things in life, and appreciate all your blessings. Make sure there is no room for negativity because you know you deserve better than that.
Prepare for success.
Claim success, and you will nail it. For example, when I was young, I was experiencing so much hardship for someone so young. But you know what? I knew that I was going to lead a different life, that the future is bright and it would hold a lot of promise. In a nutshell, I was prepared for success, and even then, I was ready.
Are you ready yet? Toughen up, kick butt and you will not regret it.
