What is mental toughness? How do YOU define mental toughness?
Think about that for a moment. We increase our physical toughness through controlled exercise. But how often do we ever think about the non visible side of strength?
Research has identified that having an unshakable self-belief in your ability to achieve your competition goals was the number one most important factor of mental toughness.
This trait, above all else, can separate you from being okay to being good.
Or even better, it can separate you from being great to being excellent.
You must continually pursue excellence.
Pursuing excellence is different than being a perfectionist. Perfection does not exist, but excellence, on the other hand, is as real as it comes.
To pursue excellence even in the face of adversity, we must have an unshakable self-belief.
You must hold your head up high and carry yourself confidently toward your goals.
You have to believe in yourself before anyone will ever believe in you.
