6 Things Mentally Strong People Do Effortlessly

1. They think in shades of grey.

“Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.” — Michael McGriffy, MD

2. They climb their own ladder.

“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.” — Stephen R. Covey.

3. They have high standards but they don’t attach to them.

“If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.” ― Anatole France

4. They keep their fears specific.

“Fear has a large shadow, but he himself is small.”
— Ruth Rendler

5. They don’t get swamped by their feelings.

“You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.”– Pearl S. Buck

6. They stand up slowly after falling down.

“You can’t become a decent horseman until you fall off and get up again, a good number of times. There’s life in a nutshell.” — Bear Grylls
