Welcome to The Lessons on Building Mental Strength

module three

 Discover Your Being

Look at life objectively

…our reality

what drives it?

how it changes?

why it changes?

In this module, we will focus on a realistic examination of life as a perpetually changing paradigm of values. You learn that adversity the norm.  It is food for the erudition of the mind. Erudition – a big word but one that is appropriate.  It means development in knowledge.  Think of it.  You are born with a body that is fully formed.  Everything that will work is already functioning.  You really do not have to do a single thing just to live.  Of course you must feed it and rest it and use it for it to function, but its function is natural and automatic.  Look at what you know.  The mind is born empty.  Everything you know now, you put it there.  And if you do not work to get and build that knowledge, it will not be there.  Knowledge is not automatic.  I will use reason (that you already have) and judgment (that you can and will expand) to help you build that knowledge and continue building it independently and progressively.

It requires and prepares you to look at stresses less as impositions that hurt or impede your survival and more as challenges that can be used to stimulate and empower you.  First you understand it yourself, and then you display it convincingly. To be an authority in an area that is obscure, one must first understand obscurity. This will be your introduction to how and why you should build insights into life, yourself, and your place in the world. You can’t truly embrace something until you understand it. So we won’t just tell you what to do. We show you why it makes sense doing it. We see this as the building of the foundation that allows you to see yourself more analytically and see what areas you need to build or strengthen. Emotions are obscure, however. We cannot truly measure them. Yet they influence every area of your ability to act, change and react, or recover from an unhealthy state.

Now Let Us Have A Scientific Look at Reality

Let's Look at Life more Objectively
Core Recognition

Men who are governed by reason, that is, men who, under the guidance of reason, seek what is useful to them, desire nothing for themselves which they do not also desire for the rest of mankind, and therefore they are just, faithful and honourable. Baruch Spinoza

A Look at Psychotherapy
Freud’s concept of repressive neurosis where he presents the notion that a person’s normal development can be repressed by a traumatic experience has held sway for many years. More recently, new techniques have been proposed to help the therapist reach deeply into the patient’s emotions either for better effect or for information that is more accurate. Therapies such as NLP are meant to offer better ways for the therapist to access information and standardize his/her position as guide/advisor. Other therapies such as Transactional Analysis, Hypnosis, or Gestalt help the therapist influence the patient’s response so a better outcome can be reached. READ MORE
Understanding Stress and Distress
Stress can be defined as the distortion of the internal structure of an object by the imposition of an external pressure.Yet, human beings experience stress, often without apparent distortion. This is because any distortion can be so hidden that it is not easily recognized. In the human being, we are blessed with sensitive receptors that alert us to injuries in any part of the body to allow us to protect it. So, we are often made aware of distortions of even modest levels long before they are represented externally.

Living With Change

Getting Ahead is Easy

Though these modules were designed to share a formula anyone can use to empower and safeguard their mental strength, many users will find that they can use both encouragement and portrayed applications in order to truly implement and own the ideas shared.

Therefore, we encourage you to either continue discussions with your own counsellor who can provide that encouragement and portrayal or book an appointment with one of our in-house guides who are professionally trained and fully acquainted with this method.  It will require an additional cost but the final cost will always be much less than the traditional route as you will quickly and firmly take charge and become the “Master Of Your Own Life”.  You may request a consultation in the box below.  Payment for it and booking the time slot for your appointment can also be done by clicking the appriopriate link in the blue menu bar above.

Request a consultation

Abstract discourses can be tiresome.  This link will allow you to book a live discussion with us for a reasonable fee.  You may choose to pay by credit card using PayPal gateway, or with direct bank payment that will be due before the day of your appointment.  You may book an appointment once you have completed the request.

Go to Module Four

When you are satisfied that your examination of these penetrating discourses is insightful and stimulating and you feel already more empowered to look deeper, you are invited to go ahead to the next Module.  You will notice that it is an extension of this one.  It will, therefore, only be useful if you have examined this module comprehensively.

For Professionals

If you have registered as a professional, you are invited to send a PRIVATE MESSAGE to ask questions or give feedback.  Private messages are accessible only when loggedin.  We invite you to interact at a professional level and both ask pertinent questions and submit intgelligent opinions.
