It seems to be very easy for people to believe that staying strong is not easy, but very hard to believe that it’s still possible for anyone to be strong.

While some people are regarded as strong people and are able to overcome life challenges, others may not be considered as such.

However, the difference is that those who are strong have learned how to utilize certain traits that give them an edge and put them at the position of being strong.

In other words, a good combo of these traits is simply what results in them being strong.

But to someone who wants to stay strong or been told to be strong and doesn’t know where to start or how to go about it, then it may seem more like science than art.

Does it have to be so? Does it mean it’s something one can’t master? Are the strong ones being magical?

Let’s look at some traits that prove it’s not supposed to be that way.

7 traits needed for staying strong

Below are seven traits needed for staying strong.

1. Confidence

Real confidence is refusing to stop believing in yourself no matter the challenge, criticism, oppression, and opposition. It finds ways to weigh all these down.

It’s your degree of being certain that things you’re facing will turn out fine, irrespective of the previous occurrence, irrespective of the previous experience or anything that comes in that fashion.

Also, how you trust and those you trust plays a crucial role here. You don’t want your confidence level to be shaky because you trust people who aren’t loyal.

You’ll need to keep believing in yourself that despite all odds, you can grow. You’re certain that your abilities, knowledge, skills, wisdom, and all are enough to get you there.

But if you don’t believe in all these about yourself, it means you aren’t being confident, and obviously, it means you’re lying to yourself that you can’t do it.

2. Courage

There’s no doubt that there will be fear. But on the other hand, courage is the decision to act and believe in yourself in the presence of fear.

It often happens that when challenges hit us, it can be very easy to entertain fear and ruin the chances of portraying courage.

If it all seems like you’re getting a little scared that things aren’t working the way you planned and everything might go wrong, then you should become more courageous.

Your main goal should be not letting little lies, life, humans, and situations tell you that it’s unbeatable to scare you such that you end up withdrawing.

When you’re strong, it means you’re willing to look past your fears and take bold steps. Sooner than you think, you become a master at it. It’s an art.

3. Control

Being able to organize your life properly and keeping calm should be a crucial weapon in your arsenal for staying strong. It should be able to complement other traits.

Staying calm in challenging and uncertain times is one of the best techniques you can use to hang on there.

In addition, it keeps you more focused and in check of your mindset. And with the right mindset, you’ll be in control of what goes on in your life, and not the other way round.

But when this control is lost, you become prone to losing every other trait needed for you to stay strong. In other words, you should train your mental and physical state to control the cruise.

Staying strong also means mastering the art of control and putting every aspect of your life under your control, so that they don’t leave you vulnerable. If you become vulnerable, you’ll lose strength.

4. Patience

Patience is key and it heals all wounds. So, if you feel wounded from anything, time, or efforts, the dosage you need to heal that wound and keep moving is patience.

So, you don’t need to complain. You don’t need to feel shattered because everything is beginning to annoy you. The truth is that you just need to stay calm.

As you stay calm, it means you’re being able to accept the delay, the troubles and the challenges, and hoping that in a short time, they will be gone.

Also, you have to put a lot of time into things that actually matter while you wait and cut off the rest.

If you refuse to be patient, however, then there’s little to zero chance that you will master every other thing. Even those things needed to make you strong.

5. Challenge

It’s important to know that the strongest people love challenges, not because they want to show off, but because they’re brave enough to say, “try me!”

So they confront their fears, rather than running from them.

When the test of your abilities and capabilities in life comes up, the best you could do is to welcome it, open up to the challenge and prove you can conquer and come out victoriously.

However, if you smirk and give it the cold shoulders, then it will end up conquering you, rather.

So, come out fully prepared to face life’s ups and downs as you mean it. You don’t want to go into a battle without the mental and physical preparation to face the challenge.

Preparation everything, but first, you need to accept you’re ready to challenge your challenger. Mix the both.

6. Perseverance

You should also understand that real strength is when you go through tough times and you still do not quit.

When those difficulties hit you, it shouldn’t be an excuse to believe you can’t keep going, rather it should be a sort of motivation to you.

But if you’re finding it quite difficult to generate that inspiration and motivation, then it will be great if you could seek it. Anyhow, anyway. Just seek it.

Nonetheless, the worst you could do is to feel reluctant towards finding ways to keep yourself moving. You need something to keep you going. Whatever works for you, just stick with it.

Great perseverance is a medium to escape sitting on a plateau and detesting comfort zones when challenging situations come up in your life.

7. Commitment

See commitment as a solid promise you never in your life intend to fail. See it as a promise never to lie to yourself. Then, when you have sorted that out, follow it up with the right behavior and mindset.

One very secret of staying strong in life is your purpose and your strong desire in looking forward to delivering that purpose of yours in life.

By being goal-oriented, you’re challenging yourself to commit to those goals, and knowing that nothing in life will limit your chances of achieving them.

So, your commitment should keep you strong and help shift your attention from the idea of giving up to the idea of holding on to what you’re unto, knowing you made a promise you must fulfill.

Just put your heart and soul. At the end of the day, you’re staying strong and fighting for something: the life you want.
