Mental strength boils down to a sentence…life is unfair!
Bland – yes! Your emphasis though is life changing.
For those who consistently choose ‘life is UNFAIR’ then their wellbeing & experience of life is likely compromised. Soonest we emphasise UNFAIR, we move to a place of blaming others for our misery, & soonest we blame, we become helpless…if our misery is everyone else’s fault then we may as well give up.
To the contrary, those who emphasise ‘life IS unfair’ are more likely to accept difficult circumstances, bypass negative emotional turmoil, & possibly do something that helps them progress.
If you accept & grab responsibility then you will create career stories that will excite your next interview panel.
