Early on in my career as a psychotherapist, I went through a series of losses that inspired me to study mentally strong people. I learned that building mental strength is a lot like building physical strength. You need good habits (like going to the gym). But it only takes one bad habit to limit your progress (like eating too much junk food).
Studying people in my therapy office helped me recognize the unhealthy (yet common) habits that can keep us stuck in life. When I gave up those habits, my life became a lot better.
I want to help you stop doing things that rob you of the mental strength you need to become your best. They worked for me and I’m sure they can work for you too.
