13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

Based on 15 years of research as a psychotherapist, and her own personal experiences overcoming heartache, Amy Morin discovered that the secret to being mentally strong isn’t about what people do—it’s more about what they don’t do. She identified 13 common but unhealthy habits that keep people stuck in life. Giving up those habits helps people work smarter, not harder. When they don’t have these unhealthy thoughts, behaviors, and emotions holding them back, their good habits become much more effective.

Based on her international bestselling book, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, Amy uses research, examples, and stories to explore:

• The main types of self-limiting beliefs
• The habits that rob us of mental strength
• The exercises that build mental muscle and help us to reach our greatest potential

We really enjoyed having Amy speak at Northwestern Mutual last week. I was standing to the side of our audience during her keynote, and I could see how engaged the audience was with her presentation. Lots of heads nodding and emotions happening. We had a lot of great audience questions as well. As I walked Amy back from our main stage, we had a lot of people stopping her to tell her what a great job she did.
