What is Mental Toughness?


presented by

Ron Harvey






Developing your mental toughness can help you be more resilient, push you to go further and harder, and perform at an optimal level under pressure. It's not as easy to just "be tougher," though.

"Mental toughness" is keeping strong in the face of adversity. It's the ability to keep your focus and determination despite the difficulties you encounter. Events in our life rarely go the way we'd like them to, but that doesn't mean you have to let it throw you off your game. Mental toughness gives you the tenacity to learn from your mistakes without the devastating blow failure can sometimes deal. This resilience and fortitude also gives you the strength to keep emotions in check when something in your life seems overwhelming and you need to be strong. Essentially, mental toughness is the voice in the back of your head that tells you to keep going, keep pushing, and keep trying, even when the going gets tough. They say "life's tough, get a helmet." These tactics can help you create the helmet you need.

What is the difference between being ordinary and extraordinary? Come join us for something different that will help you take it to next level and perform like never before.
