What person can be called a strong one? For sure, he or she is not the one who showed up talents once. He or she stays strong day after day. Additionally, a strong personality has certain skills and character features which are being cultivated patiently. You can create the unique and wonderful idea, but this is going to make you become an interesting person only. In order to become strong, you need to work on yourself hard and to understand your personality.
Devote a month to one skill, and cultivate it in your character gradually. You should not work on everything at once. After a year of such work, you will be able to obtain features and skills appreciated by everyone: from close friends to potential employers.
Learn to Call Your Enthusiasm Every Day
That is the most complicated skill, and this is why they value it the most. Imagine yourself as a person who starts any project with enthusiasm and finishes it because it is great. You probably will reach many goals and deserve respect of people around. A skill of calling out your enthusiasm every day means persistence, discipline, and motivation: features distinguishing a strong personality from a weak one.
Concentrate on Strengths
The simple truth of any activity is that you can apply 20% of effort and get 80% of expected results. In other words, if you know your advantages and use them successfully, you’ll reach many goals. You shouldn’t somehow try to fight with your shortcomings, rather focus on your strengths instead. Just make your potential usage your priority. We’ll talk about weaknesses later.
Defeat Your Fears
The next pillar for a personality to develop is the ability to defeat fears. It is not clever to think that a strong person is not afraid of anything. They are afraid, but they can control their emotions in the most important moments of their lives.
Create a list of your fears? How many of them are there? Can you overcome them? How? IT often helps just to look into your fear’s face and to make a step beyond your comfort zone.
Get out of Your Comfort Zone
Here it is. Any great journey starts from one’s comfort zone, from a place where it is pleasant, usual and comfortable for you. But there is no success, no challenges you can accept, no hunger you can please.
A comfort zone is a great place when you need to stick yourself together and clear your mind. But a strong personality gets away from it in order to solve more and more complicated questions.
Have a Task-List Nearby
A task-list which is composed cleverly and combined with your values can make miracles. Your head stays clear when you know what you need to complete. That is a habit you need to obtain as soon as you can. Human brain gets filled with unnecessary information quickly once you do not know what to do next.
Learn to Solve Problems Here and Now
Most problems that stand before people can be solved right away, and they won't take a lot of your time. But people often decide to wait, and a small problem becomes a big one. And they do not do a thing even in that case most often.
That is something like a toothache. First, a tooth hurts rarely, and “I should visit a dentist one day”. Then pain comes more often, but you can make it through. But when the pain becomes impossible to endure, you finally run to a doctor. As a result, you spend more time and money than you could if you’d solved the problem at once.
A strong person knows about that and does everything possible for a small problem not to grow into a barrier spoiling their life.
Work on Your Weaknesses
Weaknesses pull you back, and you should not ignore them. Your talent does not cost much if you are lazy. Studying the language can turn into years of pointless work if you do not teach yourself to stay disciplined and to go in for it every day.
Create a list of your weaknesses. How long is it? Which lacks can be corrected during the ongoing month? Which ones require years to work on them? Start from smaller things, but do not forget about the most serious disadvantages.
Learn to Communicate with Difficult People
There is nothing great about making friendship with those who are pleasant for you, who helps you and listens to you all the time. A strong personality can communicate with difficult people, because of perceiving that as a personal challenge. If you can find approaches to those who are not pleasant, then you’ll be able to reach many goals in this life and to strengthen your character.
Try New Approaches, Methods and Ways on Purpose
Why the most people never reach great successes? They go in for regular activities and do not look for new ways to work. That is easy: mind stays away from the process completely.
A strong person constantly looks for something. Not because this is easier, but because this is interesting. A permanent optimization of your activities let you stay conscious and look for better solutions of big problems.
