5 Ways to Become Emotionally Stronger in Life

Life is all about ups and downs. No human being is immune from problems or downtimes whoever he or she is.


So if hard times are going to visit you anyway then why not face them like a strong person instead of acting weak?


If you are going to go through the same exact problems then why not go through them with a strength that makes you proud of yourself instead of behaving in a way that badly affects your self image and your self esteem?


How to become strong:

So how can a person become strong?


1)      Chose to be strong:  When you choose to become strong your subconscious mind automatically helps you so that you can achieve that goal. That conscious choice you make becomes an unconscious mission statement that your subconscious mind will stick to.


2)      Look at tough times in a different way: many people feel bad when they face tough times because they forget the fact that downtimes can be only moments they can remind themselves how strong they are. When you stand your ground during tough times not only will you be able to get through them faster but you will also have more self esteem.


3)      Learn emotional resilience: there are several techniques that can make you a much more powerful person if you learned them. Learning how to be patient, how to absorb shocks and bad news without collapsing and learning how to keep going with disregard to bad moods are all techniques that can make you much more powerful in the face of life problems.


4)      Strike back: strong people don’t just bear hard times or bad news but they strike back with all the power they have until they solve their problems and feel good once again. In this case, don’t just patiently but do your best to solve your problems as quickly as possible.


5)      Be Brave:  many people escape from their problems and as a result they remain unsolved. As the time passes those people feel weaker and lose their self esteem gradually. If you want to be strong then you need to be brave. Courage is not the absence  of fear but it’s the ability to keep going even if you are feeling afraid.


Life was designed to favor the strong

If you read any of the success stories of famous people you will find that the story is almost the same but with different names. Successful people aren’t the ones who were born lucky or who didn’t face problems but they are the ones who challenged the odds, faced tough times, stood their ground and won their battles.

Being strong is a choice, chose to be strong now and you will become strong.

      Hi Jenny

      Yes, I agree with that. To survive we need to change and to thrive we need to change even more.

    Love the post, Farouk! So glad you made yourself known to us via Madonna.
    I admit to not perusing sites from Egypt- and now regret I have never done so before.

      Hi Roy,

      Yes, I wasn’t in the habit of perusing Egyptian sites either. Farouk found me. Lately I have broadened the number of sites I post in and have attracted readers from the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.

      He is an exciting young man with a big future. I was surprised when I checked him out, just how big the personal development interest was in that country, but given the political changes of late, I suppose it is not surprising.

    Great info! Is this a redesign of your site or a different site? I like it. It looks very clean.

      Hi Nicole.

      This is a redesign of the old site. Initially I had the site up in 2 days to start the 31 day Blog Challenge on Jan1st, so there wasn’t time to think about design. Glad you like it. I’m very happy with it.

      Used an outsourcing company In India.

    Madonna, thank you for having Farouk be your guest blogger. He is a remarkable young man with a lot of good advice. I especially like the idea of staying strong during a problem. I have just discovered from watching Oprah’s Life Class that I have a special name for my strong person and I use that name in the face of difficulties. Great post.

      Thanks Ann for commenting on the post. It is a good technique to have a name for your own inner strong person. I believe we have many parts or sub personalities within us and a separate name is a useful tool.
