7 Things People with Emotional Toughness Do Differently
#1
I ran across this and thought it might be helpful for some.
I know they're easier said than done, but these are still pretty good tips.


7 Things People with Emotional Toughness Do Differently


1. They take control.

There are two types of people in the world: Those who believe in fate, and those who believe they have control over things. Stop worrying about things that happen to you and start making things happen for you.

2. They’re flexible.
Life doesn’t always go as planned. So, it’s better to be able to pivot when you need to. Being flexible means you’re open to the unexpected and won’t crumble when something inevitably changes.

3. They learn from their mistakes.
You can either choose to crumble from your mistakes, or make them tools for your future. Look at those slip ups as training and refrain from letting them define you.

4. They create specific goals — then conquer them.

Sometimes, you’re mentally all over the places, because you have no direction. What are you doing? Why?
Write down that goal, then reap the benefits.

5. They look for acceptance from themselves, not others.
Most of us want other people to like us, but strength comes from within. Ironically, many people don’t like you until you stop caring whether or not others like you.

6. They keep their stress in check.

Find out what helps you lower your stress level.
Stress makes it harder for people to control their emotions.

7. They let the little things roll off their back.

Stop sweating the small stuff. Your mental strength is a finite supply. So, don’t wear yourself down. Although you should accept that you have control over your life, don’t turn into a control freak.

I always admired the Resilience of my parents. They had Grit. I think resilience is very underrated.

I usually find lists like that sillier than they're helpful. But these were good.

To be completely honest I feel you were more correct on the first part.
I'm not really sure how this list is supposed to help anyone. Am I missing something here?
"But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here."
-- Lewis Carrol, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Um, because it's good advice on how not to worry so much?

Because I recognize these habits or traits. I have seen them first hand with people who do well in life.
