No one is born mentally strong, but everyone has the potential to become one. Start by giving up these habits and be true to yourself.
Many women fear appearing ambitious and showcasing their achievements. Don't do anyone, including yourself, a disservice by downplaying your success. Accept compliments with a "thank you" rather than insisting that you haven't accomplished anything.
Allow your loved ones to celebrate your achievements with you by sharing them. Remind yourself of the hard work you've put in to get where you are.
Taking responsibility for your mistakes is a healthy and right decision, but excessive guilt is detrimental. It doesn't matter if you constantly apologize for every action or perpetually feel guilty—it ultimately affects your life.
We tend to be harder on ourselves than on others. The next time you feel guilty, ask yourself, "What would I say to a friend in this situation?"
Most likely, you would choose kind and compassionate words. Strive to speak to yourself in a similar way.
Whether it's laughing at an offensive joke or remaining silent during a business meeting, don't stay on the sidelines. This doesn't mean that silent individuals are weak, but withholding your ideas and suppressing your thoughts can do more harm than good. Speak your truth, even when it's difficult.
If something is happening in your life, speak up about it. Seek help from friends or reach out to a specialist. Don't wait for an invitation to speak up—you have ideas worth sharing.
Lack of self-confidence on the path to your dreams
If your mind tells you that you're not cut out for something, it's not necessarily true. It will try to convince you that you're not good enough. Looking around, you'll think that others are much more confident in themselves.
Doubting yourself is not necessarily a bad thing. Make your uncertainty work for you. Let it help you focus on your actions and achieve what you desire.
Comparing yourself to others
You waste time and energy by comparing yourself to others. It can lead you to lose sight of what truly matters.
Try to see people as carriers of opinions, not as competitors. They are different—not better or worse. Learn something from everyone you meet along your journey.
