About the Book

Examines "how mentally strong people avoid negative behaviors: feeling sorry for themselves, resenting other people's success, and dwelling on the past. Instead, they focus on the positive to help them overcome challenges and become their best"--Amazon.com.

Book Synopsis

Kick bad mental habits and toughen yourself up.--Inc.

Master your mental strength--revolutionary new strategies that work for everyone from homemakers to soldiers and teachers to CEOs.

Everyone knows that regular exercise and weight training lead to physical strength. But how do we strengthen ourselves mentally for the truly tough times? And what should we do when we face these challenges? Or as psychotherapist Amy Morin asks, what should we avoid when we encounter adversity? Through her years counseling others and her own experiences navigating personal loss, Morin realized it is often the habits we cannot break that are holding us back from true success and happiness. Indulging in self-pity, agonizing over things beyond our control, obsessing over past events, resenting the achievements of others, or expecting immediate positive results holds us back. This list of things mentally strong people don't do resonated so much with readers that when it was picked up by Forbes.com it received ten million views.

Now, for the first time, Morin expands upon the thirteen things from her viral post and shares her tried-and-true practices for increasing mental strength. Morin writes with searing honesty, incorporating anecdotes from her work as a college psychology instructor and psychotherapist as well as personal stories about how she bolstered her own mental strength when tragedy threatened to consume her.

Increasing your mental strength can change your entire attitude. It takes practice and hard work, but with Morin's specific tips, exercises, and troubleshooting advice, it is possible to not only fortify your mental muscle but also drastically improve the quality of your life.

Disgruntled - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I had to order this twice online from Target and both times the spine was messed up or pages were bent. Not brand new quality . I couldn’t order a third time since the 2nd time was a replacement. Better luck just buying it in store.

I really like how the author uses her personal and professional experiences. The real world examples make it easy to apply these ideas to your own life. This is not a list of strict rules she is trying to push on you, just an easy to read guide to improving your every day life.
