Mental Strength

Strength training for the mind. The most important consideration in the beginning of mental strength building through Zen Buddhism is change and attitude. The tendency to modify too much change too fast causes unnecessary setbacks. You must think in positive terms. It takes a minimum of time and continued practice for the mind to acclimate and internalize good strategies, attitudes and changes even if you are practicing every day and doing everything else right.

Attachment to permanence is illusionary, since all life is change.

Set new goals.

No matter how difficult the past, you can always begin again today.

Life Is Action.

Move on. Life is too short to keep looking backwards and dwelling on the hurts, frustrations and bad habits and breaks.

Even if you have achieved what you want, set new goals but differentiate between your needs and your wants.
