Hi lovely readers;
Welcome back to my blog. It has been a minute since I had the energy and will power to write a blog post. 
Toadys’ post will be wordy but I promise you it will be worth your time. 
I came across the term Mental Strength a month ago as I was searching through the Internet. This topic was so exciting to me because often times, I have the physical energy to do productive work but I lack the motivation or the push to accomplish anything. In other words, my mental strength has been so low but ever since I started the mental strength exercises as suggested in this article, I have been so productive. 
So what is mental strength?
Mental Strength is the ability to regulate your emotions, manage your thoughts and behave in a positive manner, despite your circumstances. In other words, its the mental ability to do productive work even if the circumstances are against you. 
 Below are three strategies that will help you develop mental strength:

1 Define what mental strength means to you. 

Everyone of us have different goals and requirements in life. Mental strength to me would mean being able to complete all my to do’s prior to watching some videos on YouTube. So determine what mental strength means to you and be true to who you are. 
PS: Can you imagine what mental strength would mean to Serena Williams or Beyonce? 

2. Build your mental strength on small physical wins. 

Mental strength is like a muscle. You need to work on your mental strength daily for growth and development. If you haven’t pushed yourself in thousand small ways, your mental strength will wilt when things get really difficult. 

3. Mental Strength is about your habits not motivation. 

Mental strength is not about getting an incredible dose of inspiration or motivation. It’s about building the daily habits that allow you to stick to a schedule and overcome challenges and distractions over and over again. In order to develop mental strength, the key ingredient is consistency. Mentally strong people develop systems that help them focus on important stuff regardless of how many obstacles life puts in front of them.It’s the habits that form the foundation of the mental strong people and ultimately set them apart.
