A big part of being mentally tough is not giving up when you feel like you can’t keep going. Mental Toughness is having the willpower to keep on going whatever the challenges you face and to know that your reserve fuel tank and your resolve to continue is much bigger than you think. This reserve fuel tank contains your boundaries and your breaking point and whether you are exercising or working or studying or working through day to day challenges, using it can keep you going for longer, further or harder. As you overcome more obstacles and gain in confidence and experience your reserve fuel tank will keep on growing in its capacity to enable you to push yourself 10% or 20% per cent beyond your breaking point every time.
Mental Toughness describes the mind-set that every person adopts in everything they do. Being mentally tough is critically important and valuable for everyone. Particularly in times of change and uncertain, being mentally tough is immensely important in being able to face challenges and overcome obstacles.
Mental Toughness explains why people and organisations behave the way they do. Personality can be defined as an individual’s characteristic pattern of thinking, feeling, and acting and one’s personality can explain individual differences and how individuals act in specific situations.
Mental Toughness is a personality trait which describes mindset. It examines what is in the mind of the individual to explain the way why they behave the way they do. So there is an obvious link between mindset and behaviour.
So, the next time you feel like quitting, be mentally tough and flick that switch to your reserve fuel tank to keep on going no matter what.
