Are you a mentally strong person? If you’re not sure, check out this list of things mentally stable people possess, the attitudes and habits that help them win life:
1. They move on. They don’t waste time dwelling on failures, feeling sorry for themselves. They dust themselves off and move on.
2. They keep control. They know that they can’t control everything at the same time so what they do have control over – their feelings – they keep in check.
3. They embrace change. They welcome all the challenges that come their way and don’t look at them as obstacles but as opportunities.
