The Undefeated Mind is a great book if you are looking for ways to build your inner strength in order to overcome hard times. It’s ten well-constructed chapters that will help you deal with life’s problems. This book will help you find your mission in life and build up the courage to face life’s challenges.
The book first touches on happiness.
Who doesn’t want to be happy? But did you ever stop and think that maybe in the quest to find true happiness you are causing yourself even more pain? A little bit of chocolate makes us feel good, but too much can make us feel sick, or worse cause us to gain weight.
Next the book hits on the importance of having a personal mission and a sense of purpose in life.
Without these, many of us spend our whole lives wondering aimlessly through life. Whatever you do in life, make it a personal mission to be the best at it.
The author touches on the importance of finding your personal mission in life. Whether, we want to believe it or not, there is something deep down in all of us that we are passionate about.
The author points out that you may have to dig deep into the past. You may have to go as far back as your childhood, but the point is, is that we all have something we are passionate about.
How’s your self-confidence?
Is it easily destroyed by self-doubt and anxiety? Do you focus on ways you might fail? Like the book points out, focus on ways that you might succeed. When you hit a road block, look for ways to break through and not ways to go around. These are just a few ways the author list for dealing with undermined

This next topic, that the author delves into is Social Comparison.
This was my favorite part of the book. In today’s world, we are constantly bombarded with comparisons from other people. I won’t name names, but I can think of a few. But have you ever notice that when you are trying to compare yourself to someone, it can sometimes backfire?
Something many of us probably don’t consider is the situation or what the beliefs of that person was. Like the book points out, the greater the belief that we can do something, the greater likelihood we can. Lastly, be optimistic.
Have you ever tried to break a bad habit, but just didn’t feel like you had the will power to do it? Did it make you feel like you were mentally weak?
Did you feel like a failure for a while? In this section of the book, the author provides powerful insight on ways to combat delayed gratification. You will discover just how weaker we become when we try to force more will power into our mind.
The book then moves into ways to develop good habits. It may be to your surprise how easy it is to develop a good habit when you simply don’t think about it too much.
