There’s nothing wrong with being sensitive.

It’s a valuable human trait and indeed those who lack sensitivity are criticized for it.

However, you can be too sensitive.

Being too sensitive can stop you moving past obstacles, building strong relationships and achieving your goals.

If you want to persevere in the face of obstacles and stand tall when people cut you down, and just want to be tougher, you need hone your best qualities and reduce your negativity.

Are you ready to find out how?

1. Stay Steady under Pressure

Pressure is supposed to be your friend.

It makes diamonds or it crushes.

Remember that pressure is self-imposed.

You decide to be pressured.

Take a step back and understand that the pressure you are feeling is only relative to what you think you are going to lose, but it's rarely that bad.

The fear of loss shouldn’t force you to do things you don’t want to.

2. Let Go of Things That Don't Matter

It is hard to figure out what really matters until you lose it.

Run scenarios in your head about losing things.2

Would it really be that bad if everybody at work discovered you are not as rich as you claim to be?

How bad would it really be if you went out without makeup?

3. Cast Self-doubt Aside

Self-doubt is like a bag of bricks.

You can choose to carry it around until the day you die, or you can set the bag of bricks down.

Part of your problem may be that you care about what other people think.

Maybe it is time to get over that feeling.

Maybe the happiest and most free people in the world don’t care what other people are going to think of them.

4. Set Goals and Follow through with Them

Toughness is not defined by how you start, how you plan, or even how you fare.

The tough ones are the ones that stick it out until the end.

The tough ones are able to set goals and see them through to the end.
