“World-class endurance athletes respond to the stress of a race with a reduction in brain-wave activity that’s similar to meditation. The average person responds to race stress with an increase in brain-wave activity that borders on panic.”
No matter the circumstances around us, we need to rely upon the mental toughness we normally look for in our heroes not ourselves.
Courage and tenacity are skills that can be acquired, harnessed, and leveraged. Sometimes, things have to be pretty bad for you to go for that….but whatever it takes to push you forward that is the magic that lives in mental toughness.
Developing your mental toughness will help you be more emotionally resilient, push you to go further and harder, and build that “armor to persevere” against the bullets that life fires your way.
It’s not just about “being tougher,” though.
“Mental toughness” is about the courage to keep strong in the face of adversity. It’s the ability to stay focused and determined to make our difference in spite of any difficulties encountered. Sometimes there are decisions and events that are wholly out of our control that simply don’t align with our objectives. When this happens, it feels like an assault against all the good work we are doing. It feels like no one is listening and, perhaps, like no one cares. When things fail to go the way we’d like them to, mental toughness can help ensure that our passions and purpose remain unified and intact.
Just imagine the advantages of being tough minded.
- Excel during high stress and pressure situations
- Being able to bounce back quickly after a setback
- Produce results even when the likelihood of success is low
- Be unshakable through most any circumstance
- Reduce the damage that prolonged stress can cause on the body, mind and spirit
Are you ready to create the armour your mind needs to sustain your passions and maintain your focus? Then you definitely don’t want to miss out on the opportunity of being part of this presentation! The Courage to make your difference!
