If you were an athlete or high powered business executive, you would be pretty confident that you'd be mentally tough in order to survive. But how can we develop mental toughness? Is it something that we all can learn to meet our goals and ambitions?
In this episode, our host Pete Cohen describes exactly what mental toughness is, how we can cultivate it and explains why it applies to all of us. Using case studies from the world of sport, Pete empowers us to see our lives as a competition with our inner self and helps us to apply this mindset to three key areas: 1) Health, 2) Family & Friends and 3) Work & Service. Pete describes the difference between top sports stars and most people, citing their clear vision, ability to go all in and disregard for looking bad as the secret to their mental toughness.
Pete goes on to talk about mental toughness in the context of 'work-life balance' and outlines the only effective tools for regenerating mental toughness on a daily basis, including 1) solitude, 2) mindfulness & calming activities and 3) high quality sleep.
Pete reminds us that we all have the ability to get better, and provides us with another hard-hitting dose of motivation to live life by our own rules.
