Everyone has the ability to build mental strength, but most people don't know how.
We spend a lot of time talking about physical strength and physical health, but much less time on mental strength and mental health.
We can choose to perform exercises that will help us learn to regulate our thoughts, manage our emotions, and behave productively despite our circumstances - the 3 basic factors of mental strength. No matter what your goals are, building mental strength is the key to reaching your greatest potential.

Amy Morin is a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist. Since 2002, she has been counseling children, teens, and adults. She also works as an adjunct psychology instructor.

Amy’s expertise in mental strength has attracted international attention. Her bestselling book, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, is being translated into more than 20 languages.

Amy’s advice has been featured by a number of media outlets, including: Time, Fast Company, Good Housekeeping, Business Insider, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Success, Glamour,, TheBlaze TV, and Fox News. She has also been a guest on dozens of radio shows.

She is a regular contributor to Forbes, Inc., and Psychology Today. She serves as’s Parenting Teens Expert and Discipline Expert.

As a frequent keynote speaker, Amy loves to share the latest research on resilience and the best strategies for overcoming adversity and building mental muscle.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

i think it is gonna my limiting belief i always have a belief that i am different from others and i can never get the thing that other ppl can get. I still remember that there was a time i tried my best in an exam and then the result was not live up to my expectation. At that time i started thinking not everything you try hard to achieve would become a reality. It was a hurtful experience. But after watching this video, i think i should change my default thinking maybe everything is not really bad as i may think. Maybe i can still make it if i believe in myself.

I always said: People who experience depression should never say “I have depression”. That implies they “have” an “illness”. Implies it is part of them. Implies it is a disorder thus wrong to take part of. Well… I’d like to remind you that every single human that ever existed had a period in their life that would be classified as depression. Being depressed is a normal reaction to something bad that happened. It is ok to feel it. It is a normal reaction to what you experienced. It is not part of you, it’s just a perfectly justified reaction you are having. Allow yourself to experience the reaction and go through the process of healing. The problem is not you. There’s nothing wrong with you. All of this is a normal process and you need to understand this. It will pass if you understand it and get it out of your system and actually heal yourself to be able to move on. 👍

As a brown man I have passed a lot of blame onto what I would say is racism and discrimination. Despite me living through these things I have ultimately realize that my limited life, *that is not guaranteed* , is wasted when I do not spend the time I need to feel better about myself. Ultimately I need health, wealth, and people that I love and who love me.

used to be me. I had the beautiful house and raveled a lot. I had facebook to share my photos with my friends all over the world that had no other way to share all I mentioned in the travel essays used to write to keep in touch. I never saw it as a way to put others down and did not think it could cause this and I am sorry if I did. I have photos of my journey with MS at rehab centers I lived and I and grateful helping me go back to as normal as I could get while fighting my MS. Life changes and moments like that were wonderful and the memories are just as special: but things can change at any time and prefer to feel glad for others that live special moments.

The consequences of something like not working late often include getting fired, which if you can't easily find another job means you go hungry or lose your home, so the idea that you don't have to do anything in this "free society" is rather naive. I do agree on the point about thinking the world owes us, hard work rarely, if ever, leads to success, in fact if the "successful" people of today are to be taken as case example then the only way to achieve success is to take advantage of others or manipulating them into doing your work for you while you profit off their efforts.

I want to climb all the remaining peaks of high altitude in my country, Colombia (I have climbed a few of them). The only thing that holds me back, beyond the money and the time (and the remainder guerrillas, and the Paramilitary forces, and the common delinquents) is the Government of Colombia and its policy of management of the national parks... restrictive, corrupt, greedy and managed only for the benefit of the rich or the foreigners that can afford to visit our national parks... not for the common citizens of Colombia, like myself. I will overcome this!!

One factor to become mentally strong is knowing for a fact that we cannot, nor are support to control everything. Many things are out of our hand. So we might as well be grateful for the people who once were with us and for what we learned while having them.

This has been so helpful. I have suffered and currently suffer what I believe is social anxiety disorder. I haven't been diagnosed, but it sure feels like I have it. It has taken a toll on me to the point I would take drugs and alcohol to coupe the pain. Then, I realized one day, that I don't need that in my life and completely stopped cold turkey. I had a chance to start over and that's exactly what I did. So, thank you for this 💜

Sometimes, you kinda wonder how you can feel so bad without anything bad happening to you. You start to think you’re a softy. Someone who can’t take a few punches. And you start to hate yourself because you fully believe that you’re weak. I’ve always felt drained and depraved despite barely ever pushing my limits. I’ve done weight training until I maxed out some of the machines, and yet I still feel like the slightest push from someone could easily knock me off my feet. It makes you feel weak, soft, and then you see the kinds of tough conditions and hard lives other people are able to live through and you feel anything but strong. That’s why I’ve never been able to build mental strength. I have great circumstances, I’ve built myself up physically and socially, and yet I still feel so weak. I’ve started wondering what my problem is if it isn’t my life around me.

Would say just one thing, friend, it's just 1 life, however tough the sail is, just bite on, don't waste this gift you got:life. It's not gonna be long before these times would be read by students as we read books reading about times 100 BC or 200 AD. There is one and only one purpose to life:being happy.
