Ignoring Your Feelings
I was listening to a podcast about developing mental toughness
In other words, ignoring your feelings to do what needs to get done
One of the comments said 'all you're doing is making yourself numb'
Clearly this person doesn't know what they're talking about
Its easy to think that from an outside perpsective
But please understand this...
Developing Grit is not about becoming numb and emotionless.
In fact, developing grit does the opposite
It makes you more aware of your emotions and develops your emotional intelligence
People who are numb believe that nothing matters
People with grit believe that everything matters
On top of that, your passion and zest for life increases when you develop mental toughness
You may lose a little bit of empathy towards excuses...
But you become far from numb
Your happiness, inner peace, passion and presence (among other positive trait) increase
Don't be fooled.
