Keep fighting when you feel defeated

One thing about quitting is that it becomes easier to quit the next time. To avoid falling into this trap, keep on going even when things look bleak. This applies to every area of life where things can go wrong. You either let it subdue you or you learn from it. And a great way to motivate yourself to keep on going is to believe in something. Whether this is a higher power, your dream, or a loved one, having something to believe in can help you through the toughest of times.

Don’t be scared of looking like an idiot 

The most successful people tend to have two things in common: they don’t fret about failure and they tend to not care about what people think of them. This is because they see failure as a motivation for achieving their goals and they know the opinions of others have no bearing on their success in life if they refuse to be unaffected by them.

Trust your gut 

You must trust your instincts. There’s a thin line between following your instincts and acting rashly. When the facts don’t provide a clear choice, you trust your instinct and go with what looks and feels correct. This should come after you have considered your decision from every possible angle.

Delay gratification

People that can forgo instant gratification are more disciplined, which is a key attribute of the mentally strong. This is because they know that putting in the work and exercising patience is essential to have better outcomes in life. You can get better at delayed gratification by working on your goals one day at a time. Plan to improve one thing by one percent each day. Do it again the next day and watch your life improve.

Take accountability 

Whatever the case may be, you must be responsible for your actions. People are much more likely to remember how you dealt with a situation than how you caused it in the first place. You demonstrate that you care more about results than your image or ego by holding yourself accountable, even when making excuses is an option.
