Review

"Her book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do details exactly the sort of destructive thinking you should cut out of your life if you want to radically increase your resilience. If you're looking to kick some bad mental habits and toughen yourself up, it's a great source of ideas to get you started." -Inc.

"Writing with intelligence and clarity, Morin presents concrete strategies to help readers shift from negativity to positivity. Her advice is crisp, precise and actionable." -Success

"Great thoughts from Amy Morin, LCSW in her new book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do. I recommend it." -John Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

"Each chapter delves further into the header, and provides positive and forward-thinking tactics on how to fix your flaw in logic. This is a fantastic book for anyone seeking a reality check." -Entrepreneur 

"Morin's list of don'ts are applicable in every day life, not just during personal tragedy. Being aware of them can give an individual the power to withstand daily disappointments, setbacks and obstacles." -The Washington Post

The Ultimate Guide to Mastering Your Mental Strength

Everyone knows that regular exercise and weight training lead to physical strength. But how do we strengthen ourselves mentally for the truly tough times? And what should we do when we face these challenges? Or as psychotherapist Amy Morin asks, what should we avoid when we encounter adversity? Through her years counseling others and her own experiences navigating personal loss, Morin realized it is often the habits we cannot break that are holding us back from true success and happiness. Indulging in self-pity, agonizing over things beyond our control, obsessing over past events, resenting the achievements of others, or expecting immediate positive results holds us back. This list of things mentally strong people don't do resonated so much with readers that when it was picked up by Forbes.com it received ten million views.

Now, for the first time, Morin expands upon the thirteen things from her viral post and shares her tried-and-true practices for increasing mental strength. Morin writes with searing honesty, incorporating anecdotes from her work as a college psychology instructor and psychotherapist as well as personal stories about how she bolstered her own mental strength when tragedy threatened to consume her.

Increasing your mental strength can change your entire attitude. It takes practice and hard work, but with Morin's specific tips, exercises, and troubleshooting advice, it is possible to not only fortify your mental muscle but also drastically improve the quality of your life.
