What is psychological strength?
PSYCHOLOGICAL STRENGTH is a developed state of mental resilience. It encompasses the mindset, qualities, and skills that allow us to thrive in the face of challenge and foster well-being and success.
It is multifaceted and includes such aspects as:
Resiliency | Optimism | Mindfulness/being present | Happiness/positive emotions | Values/living a life that aligns with what is important to you | Grit | Perseverance | Gratitude | Authenticity | “People” skills | Flow | Achievement | Confidence | Personal clarity | Balanced/rational thinking | Growth Mindset | Courage/bravery | Self-efficacy | Purpose |
Why is psychological strength so important?
Psychological strength helps you endure, or even thrive through, adversities, pains, and setbacks. It can also help you flourish during the good times, too, by allowing you to be the most vibrant version of yourself .
Have you ever been envious of someone who seems more content with life, more comfortable in their own skin, or more successful in various arenas of life? While it is certainly true that things are not always what they seem, these people likely have high psychological strength, whether they intentionally worked to cultivate it or got lucky enough to develop their strength naturally through life experiences.
The good news is that psychological strength CAN be developed! With intention and effort, anyone can become more psychologically strong!
Your mind is your most valuable asset or your biggest liability.
The choice is up to you.
