How To Be Stronger [5 Tips]

First: throughout this article and beyond, I assume that everyone knows the power of positive thinking. Nothing will work if you’re having negative thoughts because negativity in the mind creates weakness. To be truly strong, resilience is a necessity.

Moving on…

Strength is seen as how much force something or someone can take without breaking.

Strength is also related to power.

I guess the difference between the two would be that power also refers to the influence that can be exerted while strength is how to deal with it.

Weakness is an indication that a person or object is not able to hold much power.

As it relates to a person – weakness, strength, and power are adjectives that can be accurate to your life experience or personality.

Obviously, we don’t want to be weak so I wanted to write this article to encourage a powerful awakening towards becoming a stronger person.

The secret is that anyone can do it, if they want to. It really comes down to how they feel about themselves, their belief, and resilience.

So now that the introduction is out of the way, let’s begin with the way to inner strength and power!

1. Build Yourself Up!

Low self-esteem is a real tragedy. It’s just not fair to feel like you’re not good enough.

A lot of times, we let comparisons to others overshadow what we know to be true about ourselves. When that happens, it is the trust in your own abilities that is a failure.

Truly building yourself up means that you’re trusting in what you know that you’re good at.

Everyone is born with natural talents. Those are the things that you can do at least moderately well without having to try really hard to have a good result.

You have to own up to your natural talents. Being humble is a public trait but in private, be super proud of yourself for everything that you can do well.

Build up a complementary relationship between your mind and your abilities.

After you have a basis of what it feels like to be proud of yourself, take it up another notch with step 2:

2. Accomplish Stuff

Remember what the stars said:

The goal is to continue to build on the things that you’re good at.

It’s not about picking an entire new genre of talents.

Go toward the talents that you’re already naturally inclined to.

Challenge yourself with things that you’re already good at. just, take it up another level.

This strengthens you as a person in several ways.

The obvious way is that you’ll be able to add another skill to your resume. You now have something else that you can be proud to be good at.

Mentally, this strengthens you as well. Don’t downplay your accomplishments because then, what would be the point?

3. Try New Things Fearlessly

Is it okay to not try things because of the fear of looking dumb?

No way!

If that’s the case, that’s an indication that you’re caring too much about what other people think.

If you can look dumb to yourself then that is an indication that you are lacking in self-respect.

We all do dumb stuff sometimes and that’s not what I mean.

I’m talking about trying something and not being good at it. That is an avoidable part of living a life that is worth living.

The weak trait is to enter new experiences with fear of what it’s going to be like.

The strong way to enter something new is with the knowledge that you’ll be fine either way.

The “I’ll be okay” attitude is powerful and it attracts good experiences to you. Instead of being too serious about what you look like, you can turn your focus onto what it is that you’re actually doing.

The fourth step will allow everything else to happen more seamlessly –

4. Relax!

Let go of some of the things that make you uptight.

The stress and seriousness of life is unavoidable because once you realize that some things really matter then you have to take it serious, such as the responsibility of living a certain quality of life.

That being said, if something is not having an effect on the quality of your life then release it.

Mentally loosening up is different for everyone, depending on what your hang-ups are.

The best advice I can give is to try to have a lighter outlook on everything that your looking at.

The ability of being light of heart is indeed a trait of strength.

5. Stick To Your Word

It is a form of self-respect to have enough control to do what you say you’re going to do.

The secret here is to only give your word on things that you are absolutely sure you can deliver. That way, the plans won’t fall through based on someone else’s actions (or lack there of.)

All of these tips will help anyone to have a better, stronger relationship with yourself.

In theory, we can do anything! We just have to believe that we can πŸ™‚

Easier Relief from Anxiety Attacks

*Summary at the end of this article!*

If you know what anxiety feels like then you already know: anxiety is not fun. Anxious feelings are unpleasant.
At best, the anxious feelings won’t be more than mild nervousness before something important or meaningful is about to happen. At worst, the anxiousness will be a full blown anxiety attack over something small or out of your control.

As with all medical problems, see your doctor if anxiety is disrupting your quality of life. And also, all medical problems will come with circumstances that are specific to you and your situation. One size does not fit all.
The numerous anxiety-related disorders pinpoint all the different ways that these uncomfortable feelings and stress responses display themselves.
To have true happiness in your life, anxiety sufferers have to find a way to not be weighed down by it. As with everything, rising above anxiety starts with knowing what it is. This is key to stopping anxiety attacks once and for all.

What Is Anxiety?
The Easy Light Sources definition of anxiety is stress. This can be the stress of the unknown, the stress of not being in control, or anything else that applies.
Stress is a part of life. How you handle it is really what matters. A lot of stressful situations can be prevented by:

  • Being organized
  • Not obsessing over things you cannot control
  • Controlling your thoughts
  • Having a hobby or interest to participate in

Unrecognized stress and anxiety can turn into unhealthy coping skills. Uncontrolled anxiety can get progressively worse.

Chemical-Free Anxiety Medication?

Treating yourself without medication is only for the strongest amongst us. Everyone is stronger than they think.
If you’ve been diagnosed with a split brain, or you believe that you need medication to stop you from hurting someone then go ahead and medicate yourself. But just remember, a dependency is not a cure. If you as unable to have the anxiety management drugs, you don’t want to fall apart.
Treating yourself without medication and pills is possible. It’s just stress management using the natural resources available to you!

A word about anxiety treatment with natural substances: CBD Oil is the latest natural supplement for anxiety. People love it and there’s are thousands of testimonials that support the claim that CBD Oil is the bees knees. On a lesser tier, herbs, such as valerian and passionflower also do the same relaxing things in the body. Natural substances are a good way to go but NO substances is the actual way to go for longevity (long-term anxiety relief).

It would be helpful to learn ways to ground yourself with your five senses. Learning these things before you have an anxiety attack will make it easier to use them during an anxious moment.

  1. Sight – Take several moments to look at something beautiful. Pretty flowers, regal animals, artistic cloud patterns, smiling faces of your loved ones, lush green grass, colorful fruit. Anything that you like that you find pleasant to your eyes… You can also close your eyes and visualize the pleasant things that you enjoy looking at.
  2. Smell – Make it a priority to smell some fresh air every day. There are other scents too – natural oils, essential oils, fresh flowers, cooking food and/or baked goods, pungent herbs, coconut oil, and more.. It doesn’t have to just be things you like the smell of. The scent of bitter herbs also brings new energy to your experience.
  3. Feelings – Take a moment to appreciate the texture of different materials around you. The pattern of your jeans, the softness of a cotton shirt, the cool metal of your earrings, your heavy belt buckle, a plush blanket, a soft pillow…. Feelings also come in the form of an emotional expression. Indulge in the feeling of things that you are grateful for, thankful for, and what brings feelings of joy.
  4. Taste – Because of the tendency for food to become a dependency, anxiety-related disorders should not be treated with food. Sweets, candy, salty foods, chips, all of these things should be enjoyed in peace. Anxiety attacks are not peaceful moments.
  5. Hearing – “They say music can alter moods and talk to you.” It’s true! Because of this truth, the music that you listen to during anxious moments should be pre-chosen before you have a moment. Use any and all of your favorite songs. If you enjoy hate music – That is, music with negative or harm inducing lyrics, listen to it once or a few times. As you listen to it, have the intention to release your anxiety into the lyrics. Cry if you need to. But balance it out with some “it will be okay, it’s a wonderful day” type of lyrics.

The options are endless! It is worth it to take the time to determine what you like and what adds good energy to your mental state. Keep your resources close to you.
If none of the simple suggestions above help, you may really want to consider whether or not you actually want to be rid of anxiety. You have the give it a try.

Now we should really talk about social anxiety.

What Causes Social Anxiety?

Social anxiety has two components:
You
Other people

Other people can be mean, they can be jerks. For some reason there are some people who are mean spirited on purpose. They want other people to feel pain and hurt. Being on the receiving end of this energy can certainly cause people problems socially.
Being teased will certainly prevent someone from wanting to share their thoughts and ideas with others because of the fear of being ridiculed.
It’s understandable but it’s also a weak position that hinders you from progressing socially and otherwise.

A person with social anxiety would benefit much better to accept more responsibility for their social anxiety.
The harsh truth comes down to the fact that most socially anxious people have insecurity at their core. Sure, the insecurity may be caused by someone else’s actions toward you but it takes a strong person to decide to control their own feelings. Be that strong person.

Strength and believing in yourself has many forms and it looks different depending on the situation.

Being able to adapt is a key skill to live without anxiety. But first, let’s see what strength and believing in yourself looks like:

  • Saying no when you want to say no.
  • Letting someone know when they’re being a jerk.
  • Speaking your opinion and/or speaking facts that you know to be true.
  • Dressing in a style that you find appealing.
  • Leaving a room that is hostile towards you.
  • Entering a room that you belong in.
  • Not believing negative things that people say to you or about you.
  • Choosing to be happy.
  • Practicing self-care to increase your personal value.
  • Always doing your best.

When it comes to adaptation, there is strength in flexibility. Being too rigid makes it hard for other people to work with you. Just how you have your own thoughts and ideas about things, so do other people. Only wanting to do things your way is unfair to other people. It is also unfair to you because that means that you’re blocking your ability to expand your mind via other other perspectives.

Control issues is a form of anxiety, too. Wanting to control everything causes stress because 1) you’ll be stressed if things don’t go according to how you want it to. And 2) you’ll be uptight as you hold on too tight.

Just. Relax.

Drugs and Anxiety
Drugs cause anxiety. If you can’t get the drug, you’ll be anxious. You can become anxious as you worry about the quality of your drugs. The way that a drug reacts with your brain cells may cause anxiety. Being high and not in control can cause anxiety. Taking a break from drugs can cause anxiety as your body cleanses itself.
And so on. Remember, any substance can cause anxiety. Especially if you can’t get any and you don’t know how to cope with sobriety.

Why Does Depression and Anxiety Commonly Go Hand-in-Hand?
The unfortunate truth is that many people who have depression also have anxiety. Depression, for many, is a lower energy form of anxiety.
To be frank, each of these emotional disorders are bad enough on their own. Combining them into a common phrase -depression and anxiety – subliminally encourages people to put them together and claim both problems.

However, unfortunately, lots of people who have one of these disorders will have the other. That’s because they share a root cause of perspective: pessimism.

So, What Are Some Proper Solutions / Anxiety Coping Skills:

There are some coping skills listed earlier in this article geared toward the 5 senses. So instead of repeating those great suggestions, it would be helpful to mention something that is not popularly stated when it comes to treating anxiety. That is –
SELF-CONTROL.

Anxiety is an emotional and thought-driven disorder. You can control your thoughts. JUST THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE.
Before you say “It’s not that easy” ask yourself this question: “would you rather think about what’s causing your anxiety attack or would you rather think about something else?” Stop reliving bad experiences.

If you must think about the trigger then CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE about it. In any unfortunate situation, determine how you can win or benefit from it. Whatever it is, frame it in a way that it works to your advantage.

If you can’t do that then your mental fortitude needs to be strengthened.

**SUMMARY**

  • Anxiety is an unhealthy response to stress.
  • Grounding yourself is a good way to curve anxiety attacks.
  • For long-lasting anxiety relief, it’s imperative to learn how to cope without the use of any substances (natural/unnatural).
  • At the root of social anxiety is insecurity.
  • Drugs cause anxiety.
  • Depression and anxiety both have pessimism as a root cause.
  • Anxiety solutions include getting an anxiety bracelet, getting counseling, meditation, controlling your thoughts, being organized, and going with the flow.

Transformation Made EASY

** There is a bullet-point summary at the end of this article :)**

A fresh start is a powerfully appealing idea from many angles. It doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul of your life – any smaller area can use a refresh too.

It all starts with an idea in your mind. Think about it and consider (from all angles) the changes that you want to bring about.

Once it’s solid in your mind, you have begun manifesting a personal evolution.

This article will discuss the necessary steps to lasting transformation.

1. Start With A Personal Manifesto

Considering the manifestation definition in the picture above, a manifesto is a written declaration of what you plan to make happen in your life.

Writing it out is the only way to start – it is a visual reminder and will help you to stay on track. After all, you want to manifest your desires…

That is, you want to bring it into reality. Writing it down is a great first start as you will be able to see the words on paper.

You can manifest:

  • A new beginning
  • A better attitude
  • Different employment
  • New or improved skills and talents
  • Friends and relationships
  • Etc

The above list of examples is drafted to uncloud any judgments that could be present.

Controlled evolution starts with having a goal in mind. Uncontrolled evolution can cause your life to be counter-productive.

This article is about a new beginning via transformation. Getting to your next level starts with a solid idea and goal.

2. A fresh start – in any area – comes down to your willpower.

You have the power to transform.

A transformation definition is to go from one form to another, completely. Whatever you transformed will look different than it was before.

Is it deeper than waking up saying “I change my mind”? For people with a strong willpower, it will be that easy.

For most people, daily reminders will be needed – such as reading your personal manifesto frequently. Do what you need to do to control your thoughts. Only think of what you want to happen. Change the way you see things.

Lasting change (that goes from a new beginning to a different life) requires adherence to to the transformation rules:

  1. Have a goal for your next level.
  2. Release emotions that are attached to your old ways.
  3. Work toward your transformative goals.
  4. Work toward your transformative goals.
  5. Work toward your transformative goals.
  6. Think on a higher level (Think as though you’ve already transformed).
  7. Do not go back to your old ways.
  8. Celebrate every single step of your transformation.

Now, what about transformational leadership?

Take a look around the internet. Dozens upon dozens of people are starting coaching businesses and promote themselves as gurus and leaders of every field you can think of.

These are outer sources of motivation. They’ll motivate, sure. And they’ll encourage, support, and possibly feel like a friend if that’s what you need.

But, true transformational leadership comes from within you. That is, be your own transformative leader.

You will be much better off when you’re able to motivate yourself.

Let your goals guide you. Only you know your reasons for why you need to evolve. Trust yourself more and believe in yourself.

Depending on someone else to “get you going” is a set up for failure.

Here’s a SUMMARY:

  • True transformation starts with believing that you can manifest what you desire.
  • Write down your goals into a personal manifesto.
  • Refer back to your personal manifesto often.
  • Strengthen your will power to work toward your goals every day.
  • Release old emotions attached to your past thoughts and behavior.
  • Tune your thoughts to your evolved level.
  • Never backslide.
  • Be your own transformational leader.
