Episode 060: Amy Morin – 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

Amy Morin is an incredibly interesting person.  She truly understands the importance of being real, being sincere, and being yourself.  We are extremely fortunate to have Amy share her knowledge with us, the loyal listeners of The Learning Leader Show.

Amy’s article, “13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do,” introduced the world to the bad habits that can keep us from being mentally strong. Her article was reprinted and shared millions of times as it became a viral sensation. Within a few days, her list was republished on Forbes.com, where it became one of their most read articles of all time with 10 million views.

Despite the popularity of her article, very few people knew that her knowledge of mental strength stemmed beyond her expertise as a psychotherapist – it was also personal. Losing her mother, husband, and father-in-law in a short period of time reinforced to her that it’s not enough to have good habits – we also have to avoid the unhealthy pitfalls that can prevent us from reaching our greatest potential.

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for this wonderful information.
    Being mentally strong is always a privilege to control others. Mental strength is not an inborn quality of a person. Our experiences, our environment, our family, our friends and last but not the least our situations make us mentally strong. So there are some qualities that will help you to make a strong mind-set. In your article you have put across beautifully. Adopt some qualities in your life is one perspective but it’s also important to perform exercises that build your mental muscle. With hard work and dedication, you can train your brain to perform at your peak.
    Hope this article will help all readers to lead themselves in the path to became mentally strong.
