Hi, pretties! I hope you’re doing fine as today is going to be another day to spend with your family or special one. As for the parents, today is supposed to be the last day of public holidays which they can spend with their kids! How great is it? So, today’s post is not going to be product review because I would love to share some inspiring books about the importance of having positive vibes. Yes. The things that you need to keep up with a positive mindset. I have listed down some of the books which you should read because they are ‘awesome-ly’ interesting!
I was unfamiliar to ‘Law of Attraction’, and I used to complaint a lot. I used to swear when I was stuck in traffic jams, I got mad easily when I heard people talked behind my back, and I used to think that I was the most unfortunate being because I never got what I wished. I had such attitude back then because I was surrounded by people who loved to complain on Twitter. One day, a friend recommended me to read a motivational book about how life can be changed with a simple ‘Thank You’. We are, in fact, the master of our own fate, that means, we are the highest answer. Here is a list of 8 nice books about having a positive mindset.
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.
