What is Mental Toughness & How to Achieve It

 

Introducing our new podcast series: Mental Skill of the Month! Each month, we are going to unpack a different mental skill. We’ll cover everything from its definition, examples of how it shows up in the performance world, and simple strategies that you can follow to build that skill.

We’re kicking off the series strong with mental toughness. Mental toughness is NOT what many people think it is. Society has misconstrued its definition to promote hustle culture. So, I thought I’d shed some light on its true meaning and how we can strive towards it in our performance careers.

Tune in to learn:

Why society has mental toughness all wrong  The significance of environment & getting out of your comfort zone  How a mentally tough performer navigates negative self-talk  How to make fear a motivating emotion/experience
