    1) They don?t feel sorry for themselves

    They understand that complaining doesn?t make the situation better.
    They know that people won?t treat them they way they want to be treated, circumstances might not be ideal, and they will experience adversity; however, rather than complain about the negative aspects of their situation, they focus on what they want to happen and what they?re going to do about it.

    2) They don?t give people power over them

    They are not people pleasers.
    They are relentless in their pursuit of their passion and aren?t worried about what other people think.
    They give power to what they focus on, and if they waste their time focusing on the opinions of others, they lose sight of the things that will make them truly successful.

    3) They don?t avoid change

    They are always looking for ways to evolve. They believe that if they continue to give their best, their best will continue to get better over time.
    With the competition continuing to get bigger, stronger, faster, and smarter; it?s important to have the mindset to improve by learning from successes and failures.

    4) They don?t play small

    The mentally tough swing for the fences and know that it might mean striking out a few times (or many times). Their purpose for achieving greatness casts away their fear of failure. They refuse to tip-toe through life, they intend on creating a legacy for the future by making an impact in the here-and-now.


    5) They don?t focus on things they can?t control

    They refuse to waste time focusing on things they can?t control because there is nothing they can do about it!
    They understand that the less control a person feels the more susceptible they are to making poor decisions, falling into bad habits, and crumbling under pressure.

    I guess you've just forgotten to add the source. Here you go:

    Code:
    addicted2success. /motivation/5-things-mentally-tough-people-dont-do/
    Fill the gap with the usual domain ending. Can't post urls yet. (There's some great stuff to be found at addicted2success!)

    There's always a choice in life. In my opinion in IM world, More work = Less social life. It's hard to balance everything. The successful people are the ones who work smart and have love and passion for their work.
