Ten Healthy Attitudes for Personal Development

Part of the Personal Development All-in-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

People who hold rational philosophies are generally less prone to emotional disturbances, such as anxiety and depression, and are more readily able to solve problems than others. Here are ten rational philosophical standpoints that are good for your psychological health:

  • Assume emotional responsibility: you feel the way you think.

  • Think flexibly.

  • Value your individuality.

  • Accept that life can be unfair.

  • Understand that approval from others isn’t necessary.

  • Realise that love is desirable, not essential.

  • Tolerate short-term discomfort.

  • Enact enlightened self-interest.

  • Pursue interests and act consistently with your values.

  • Tolerate uncertainty.
