How does one build “mental toughness”?
Here’s some information I wanted to share from Greg Everett’s book “Tough: Building True Mental, Physical and Emotional Toughness for Success and Fulfillment”
True Toughness is built through the continuing development of four elements:
-Character: Who are you? Do your values align with the identity you want to believe is in you?
-Capability: What are you able to do? The more we’re able to do, the less intimidating and overwhelming unfamiliar experiences are.
-Capacity: What are you able to withstand? This is what we see as resilience and fortitude to endure extraordinary struggle.
-Commitment: What are you willing to do? Are we consistent in our daily routines that reinforce our character, capability, and capacity?
I hope this gives you some food for thought as it did for me!
