What is Mental Toughness and how can it help?
In life, we train our “skillsets,” such as pitching mechanics, a shot in basketball, or route running in football, yet we rarely focus on training the one thing we truly can control – our MIND.
It’s important to learn how to handle failure and the emotions that come with it. Mental performance training teaches you how to develop a system to not only succeed, but also how to fail. Failure is going to happen – so the question becomes – HOW ARE YOU GOING TO RESPOND?
“Mental toughness is the ability to face adversity, failure, and negative events without a loss of effort, attitude, and enthusiasm. Everyone works hard when they feel good. Everyone is enthusiastic when things are going well. A person who is mentally tough does not let circumstances dictate who they are at that moment. You control mental toughness.”
