They don’t think they need more to be happy.

Emotionally strong people know that happiness is a mindset of appreciation.  In other words, happiness doesn’t start when “this, that or the other thing” is resolved.  Happiness is what happens now when you appreciate what you have. (Read Authentic Happiness)

They don’t expect everything to be easy. 

Emotionally strong people don’t view failures and delays as reasons to give up.  Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve.  They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.  Whether they are working on improving their health or getting a new business off the ground, emotionally strong people don’t expect immediate results.  Instead, they apply their efforts and skills to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time.

I failed to ram my head through that brick wall. All is not lost! I shall run FASTER next time. Watch me learn and grow! Lol. ;)

Stick with it, Phillip!

They don’t say, “I can’t.”

As Henry Ford put it, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.”  Emotionally strong people know this is true.  If you really want to do something, you can and you will find a way.  If you don’t, you will surely find a long list of excuses.  So stop saying “I wish” and start saying “I will.”  Turn your “can’ts” into “cans” and your dreams into plans.

henry ford used a time machine and ripped me off. I said that first.   

Henry Ford was sneaky that way.

They don’t think it’s too late to start over.

Let go of the idea that it’s too late to start over.  Remember, it’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t… even if it means beginning anew.  Just because some things didn’t work out as you had expected, or didn’t happen as fast as you thought they would, is no excuse to give up on yourself.  Time passes one way or the other.  Do what you need to do so that, at the very least, you can look back someday and say, “I gave life my best shot.”

And remember, it only takes one idea, one second in time, one relationship, one dream, one leap of faith, to change everything, forever.  So hang in there.  Keep exercising your emotional strength.

this one was my favorite.  starting over is exhilarating, empowering, and utterly necessary sometimes to catapult you to your next level.

It's hard to get the energy to begin. But you're right, sometimes it is utterly necessary.
