“All things are difficult before they are easy”Thomas Fuller
This week’s mental toughness fridge magnet is an oldie but a goldie from Thomas Fuller who penned it way back in the 1600’s in Olde England.
Its great advice that encompasses all that is good about being mentally tough:
- the self efficacy to know that a problem however difficult can and will be overcome;
- the resolve and persistence to keep on going and not give up;
- the sense of adventure surrounding the drive to learn new skills to meet the new challenge;
- understanding that continued practice will improve one’s capacity and confidence to succeed in that task. The more successful you are the more confident you will become.
