Reseña del editor
From Amy Morin, author of “13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do”, the article that went viral and garnered million views in two weeks, comes the ultimate how-to guide to overcome the obstacles getting in the way of a fabulous, more fulfilling and happier life.
Morin knows that of which she speaks. At just 26, while working as a Psychologist and therapist, Morin’s husband died suddenly. Inwardly reeling, she realised what pitfalls she didn’t want to succumb to: self-pity, a sense of entitlement and resentment. In the ten years since then, she’s refined these principles and worked on them with countless patients. The results are impressive.
In this book, we learn to identify the 13 common habits that hold us back in life, and how to avoid them. We go to the gym to build up our physical muscles, but we haven’t yet thought about mental strength: the real key to a more productive and meaningful life. This revolutionary book shows you how.
Biografía del autor

Amy says she’s the only person in the psychology industry who is talking about mental strength on a global level, and I’m delighted that’s she’s bringing the weight of science to this topic (likening mental strength to something you can improve with practice and discipline just like physical health).
She encourages readers to adopt certain mental strength-building strategies by first looking at what mentally strong people don’t do.
Here’s the full list:
1. They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves
2. They Don’t Give Away Their Power.
3. They Don’t Shy Away from Change
4. They Don’t Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control
5. They Don’t Worry About Pleasing Everyone
6. They Don’t Fear Taking Calculated Risks
7. They Don’t Dwell on the Past
8. They Don’t Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over
9. They Don’t Resent Other People’s Success
10. They Don’t Give Up After the First Failure
11. They Don’t Fear Alone Time
12. They Don’t Feel the World Owes Them Anything
13. They Don’t Expect Immediate Results
I thought each of one of the above is important, but given my assignment I’m going to focus on thing they don’t do #6: They Don’t Fear Taking Calculated Risks.
Amy says that all too often people stop themselves from taking a risk because it evokes a strong fear response. The problem is we don’t even investigate the thoughts and beliefs that triggered the fear response in the first place.
We simply decide not to think about it or its consequences at all. And without understanding the beliefs that created the fear, or the potential outcomes of taking a risk even when we do, we end up completely avoiding risky ideas or dreams altogether.
The bottom line is, most of us don’t really invest much time calculating which risks to take and which risks to avoid. Instead, we base our decisions on emotion or habit.
If it feels too scary, we avoid the risk.
But here’s where it gets interesting: Amy tells us if we’re excited about the possible benefits, we’re more likely to work through the challenges that the risk presents. So we really need to be willing to work with our fears in order to transform them.
What I know for sure is that everything we want is outside of our comfort zone.
To quote Amy Morin from 13 Things, “If we only take risks that make us the most comfortable, we’re likely missing out on some great opportunities. Taking calculated risks often mean the difference between living a mediocre life and living an extraordinary life.”
I found Amy’s book helpful in so many ways, and I highly encourage you to read 13 Things: she provides many, many helpful checklists, tools, tips and strategies for becoming mentally strong and living the life of your dreams.
In the chapter about taking calculated risks, she even provides a comprehensive list of questions to ask yourself to help create your own risk/benefit analysis.
If you have ever felt stuck or small in the past and want a new way of evaluating clear next steps for building your mental strength, you’ll love this book!
These thirteen habits don't just help you get through grief, they will help you develop mental strength. Here are some parts of 13 THINGS I thought were especially good:
♦ Developing mental strength requires three different steps: First thoughts, second behavior, third emotions.
♦ We have to balance our emotions with rational thinking: "We make our best decisions in life when we balance our emotions with rational thinking."
♦ One of the first chapters shows the problems with self-pity: "Feeling sorry for yourself is itself destructive. It leads to new problems and can have serious consequences." Instead of wallowing in pity, Amy suggests exchanging self pity for gratitude. The author cites a 2003 study in the "Journal of Personality and Social Psychology," which shows that people who feel gratitude don't get sick as often as others.
♦ A big mistake is a sense of entitlement: "Get over yourself. Develop self awareness of your sense of entitlement.
♦ A big obstacle to mental strength is giving other people power over you: "Giving other people the power to control how you think, feel, and behave makes it impossible to be mentally strong."
♦ This book is filled with lots of practical suggestions. Here's one simple one: "When you receive criticism or feedback from others, wait a beat before responding. If you're upset or emotionally reactive, take the time to calm down."
♦ Learn from prior mistakes: "Establish behavior that will replace previous behavior. Instead of drinking alcohol to cope with stress, a person could identify alternative strategies, such as going for a walk or calling a friend." Looking at prior mistakes in a positive way helps you to learn so that you don't repeat them again.
Finally, in order to maintain mental strength, try coaching yourself. Follow these steps: First monitor your behavior, secondly regulate your emotions, thirdly think about your thoughts.
√ Wow! All in all, 13 THINGS is a practical, well-written book by someone who knows what she is talking about--both professionally as well as personally. I learned a lot of good, practical ideas. At the conclusion of the book the author provides references to support her various conclusions.
