Glasgow Interactive Discuss What Successful Entrepreneurs Don’t Do
GLASGOW, UK, January 2014 – One way you can define mental strength is by identifying the things mentally strong individuals don’t do. Here is a list here along with how each of these items is particularly applicable to entrepreneurs.
1. Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves. Mentally strong people have learned to take responsibility for their actions and outcomes; they have an inherent understanding of the fact that frequently life is not fair. They are able to emerge from trying circumstances with self-awareness and gratitude for the lessons learned.
2. Give Away Their Power. Mentally strong people avoid giving others the power to make them feel inferior or bad. They understand they are in control of their actions and emotions. They know their strength is in their ability to manage the way they respond.
3. Shy Away from Change. Mentally strong people embrace change and they welcome challenge. Their biggest “fear,” if they have one, is not of the unknown, but of becoming complacent and stagnant.
4. Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control. Mentally strong people don’t complain about things beyond their control. In a bad situation, they recognize that the one thing they can always control is their own response and attitude.
5. Worry About Pleasing Others. A mentally strong person strives to be kind and fair and to please others where appropriate, but is unafraid to speak up. They are able to withstand the possibility that someone will get upset and will navigate the situation, wherever possible, with grace.
6. Dwell on the Past. There is strength in acknowledging the past and especially in acknowledging the things learned from past experiences—
7. Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over. Research shoes that the ability to be self-reflective in an accurate and productive way is one of the greatest strengths of spectacularly successful executives and entrepreneurs.
8. Resent Other People’s Success. It takes strength of character to feel genuine joy and excitement for other people’s success.
9. Give Up After Failure. Mentally strong people are willing to fail again and again, if necessary, as long as the learning experience from every “failure” can bring them closer to their ultimate goals.
10. Feel the World Owes Them Anything. Mentally strong people enter the world prepared to work and succeed on their merits, at every stage of the game.
