Mental Toughness And Small Wins

Mental Toughness And Small Wins

Mental toughness needs to be worked to grow and develop. If you haven’t pushed yourself in thousands of small ways, you’ll wilt when things get difficult.

Extreme situations test our courage, perseverance, and mental toughness, but so do everyday circumstances. Challenge yourself whenever you can, consistently do what you know you’re supposed to and don’t let your brain’s laziness control you.

Mental Toughness Requires Habits

... not motivation. Motivation comes and goes. Mental toughness is about building the daily habits that allow you to stick to a schedule and overcome challenges and distractions consistently.

Mentally tough people don’t need to have more courage, talent or intelligence — just more consistency. They also develop systems that help them focus on the important stuff regardless of the obstacles.
