The Strength Of The Mind Can Help Overcome The Hardest Obstacles

“You have power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength’ – Marcus Aurelius.

Sometimes we are so concerned about what is happening outside and how someone else is factored in our lives that we tend to underestimate the power of our minds.

With resilience and perseverance, we can achieve anything and overcome any obstacle, and we need to keep reminding ourselves every time we are confronted with a difficult situation.

No matter how strong the force of peer pressure, mental health issues, and environmental issues are. It cannot be stronger than the willpower you hold within.

All you need to do is sharpen it a little!

Yes, weakness and vulnerability are big factors to consider, but there are ways in which you can minimize them.

– Yes, they will require practice.

– Yes, you will falter from time to time.

But, if you stay true to your lane and remember why you started, you will achieve that amount of mind which works on strength.

In this excerpt below, we will discuss the different ways to help you overcome the difficulties and reach that point.

Plus, we will also be discussing the different ways in which this strength of mind can help you overcome the challenges of addiction.

Mental Strength To Combat Addiction

Now, you might be wondering.

Why addiction?

In recent years due to technology and especially after the COVID19 pandemic, we have seen a surge in addiction.

Addiction is related to alcohol and tobacco, which are the common ones, plus addiction which is related to different intravenous drugs and opioids (a prescription medicine). 

We cannot stress enough how much mental resilience is required to get to say these substances in a social setting. Plus, detach yourself from the painful claws after a period of consumption.

If you are on a journey of battling addiction and looking for the right kind of help which can allow you to get rid of these substances, then look no more. Now, here’s a great place to get started.

– Saying no to social settings include peer pressure and the fear of not being included.

– Saying no to these substances in a public setting, i.e., social events where everyone is drinking.

– Saying no to them when your own body and mind craves for the euphoric release from reality when confronted with serious mental health issues.

– Sometimes, it is even our own people and family environment which causes such a difficult situation, and we have to say no to the idea of finding safety in such substances.

Someone suffering from a terrible mental health problem can face difficulty holding that strength and perseverance.

However, do not worry, as, in this excerpt below, we will discuss all the important ways you can achieve that ‘strength of mind.’

Ways Which Will Give You All The Power To Your Mind

Strength of mind or power is directly correlated to the willpower you can hold in difficult situations and how you can be resilient even in difficult times.

All in all, with this internal power, you overcome any external obstacle.

1. Start Therapy

Our mind is a black box that is yet to be discovered even by us, and thus we need to start therapy immediately.

Therapy is not something you take only when you are having some trouble with your mind and emotions. Instead, one can take therapy just to know themselves better.

Plus, you are getting authentic advice from a professional whenever you are confronted with a tough situation.

2. Look At The Bigger Picture

Never be myopic (short-sighted) about any situation, then you are bringing doom for yourself. Whenever there is an obstacle, you are in a dilemma between the easy and the right decision.

Take a good look at the bigger picture. Will taking that drug help you secure a healthy future? If the answer is no, then no matter what the pressure is, it is not worth risking your life and future.

3. Read Extensively

Read extensively about the power of the mind and how you can motivate yourself to do the right thing.

If you find yourself in a tough situation where taking the dishonest and unhealthy decision is upon you, read about the people who have taken the wrong decision and how much they have struggled.

A wise person will always learn from other people’s mistakes.

4. Yoga & Mindful Meditation

Yoga and mindful meditation directly correlate to our minds. By now, you should know that a powerful one is peaceful.

It is the chaos that makes you overthink and fear the obstacles. Thus, practicing these mindful activities at least once a day is a habit.

5. Planning & Preparation

Fear is dangerous!

The moment you start fearing the obstacles, you are bound to put your worst feet forward. Your life won’t remain sunshine and daisies all the time. Thus, you need to plan and prepare for the things that might go wrong.

This doesn’t mean you will overthink and obsess over it. Instead, be reasonable, and if you are having trouble doing that, consult a psychologist.

6. Self-Love

Self-love and validation are what makes us warm blood animals. This means you won’t be needing external validation to keep you warm and content.

This is especially required among teens to say to all those peer pressure.

7. Boundaries & Standards

Set boundaries and standards and be rigid about it.

Remember, the only people who will have a problem with you having boundaries are the ones who can benefit from you not having it.

Thus, ensure that you choose your social circle wisely.

Strength Is Power!

With your newfound mental resilience, you will be able to reach new heights and cross all the obstacles.

Remember that obstacles and difficult situations are an inevitable part of your life. It is all about your mental process and reaction.

With the strength of mind as a new power, the obstacles will seize to be insanely difficult to cross.
