As an expert in motivational speaking, mental health speaking, corporate training and life coaching, Joyce Marter recently spoke around the country on the topic of mental wealth to both corporate audiences and counselors.

Psychology techniques to increase mental wealth
The following keys are what Joyce notes as vital in increasing your own mental wealth, whether personally or professionally. She indicates that they are universal truths that she has seen through her work with clients over the past 20 years and she, herself, puts them into place in her own life.
Having self-awareness means understanding why we do the things we do and having a firm grip on our belief systems and how we come across to others.
Being present refers to having peace in the present moment without second-guessing the past or worrying about the future.
When we take responsibility for ourselves and not place blame on our past experiences, how we were raised, etc., we can move forward knowing that we are ultimately responsible for our lives and the choices we make.
When we are compassionate and empathetic toward others (and ourselves) we can help to better communicate and manage conflict with those in our lives.
Self-love is key to helping not only ourselves, but others. When we embrace self-love, we can actively help those who want or need our help.
Having a supportive network both personally and professionally, being able to ask your network for help when you need it and identifying any toxic people in your life is key to mental wealth.
Our Essence is our true spirit and deals with letting go of the ego and allowing our authenticity and vulnerability to be seen.
Detachment refers to the ability to mindfully separate oneself from our thoughts, feelings and even others and simply “watching” things from a safe place.
This key refers to changing our thinking and self-talk in order to change our lives.
Here, Joyce shares the importance of mapping out our own way and creating a 1-3-5 year plan both personally and professionally.
Resilience is the ability to move forward despite setbacks and challenges.
Abundance is the belief that there is more than enough to go around for everyone, and the good you put out into the world will come back to you.
