HOW TO VIEW MENTAL TOUGHNESS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

I hope you are noticing one key fact about mental toughness.

There is no line, mental toughness does not get turned off and it does not only get tested when you feel like testing it. How you work in the gym will translate to how you handle life.

Aggressively attacking a workout, deciding to push yourself while being in complete control is the same way you should attack job in...

HOW TO VIEW MOTIVATION FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

We are nearing the end. It is time to give you the secret. The secret of how to view daily motivation for the rest of your life.

Zig Ziglar was on to something when he said, "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily."

The biggest struggle for building consistent healthy habits was lack of motivation and excess fati...

It is time to become a switch flipper, a decision maker and a full-fledged mental toughness practitioner. How do we do that?

Perseverance.

What does that word mean to you? What have your persevered? To most, perseverance is something that is thrust upon you. 

You continue on, despite a difficult time because you have no other choice. There is no doubt you have persevered something, but what about intentionally practicing persever...

So far in phase three we have talked about being mentally tough and motivation.

On day 16 we discussed the importance of intrinsic motivation;

why it is important for you to be autonomous and to experience competence in the activities you perform for physical fitness.

We then even called out extrinsic motivation, pointing to research that says, if your primary motivational drivers are extrinsically based - you may not last long.

Your mental toughness journey started the day you signed up for this program, but is doesn't end when the program is over.

It continues on. Today, we talk about getting comfortable in the uncomfortable and building your mental toughness brick wall.

How you start is important, very important, but in the end it is how you finish that counts. It is easier to be a self-starter than a self-finisher.

The victor in the race is not the one who dashes off swiftest but the one who leads at the finish. In the race for success, speed is less important than stamina.

The sticker outlasts the sprinter in life's race. In America we breed many hares but not so many tortoises."   - B.C. For...

A lot of people are afraid of fitness, afraid of their capabilities and afraid of what can come from extreme physical exertion.

This applies to everyone.

You could be out of shape and not have worked out in years or be in great shape and work out daily, but behind either circumstance there is some fear lingering.

You could be afraid to get started or afraid to take it to the next level.

So how do you conquer fear?

To answer, or s...

I know this is a tough week, but you are killing it!

You've heard it all before...

Pain is a weakness leaving the body

Mind over matter

[Insert generic mind vs. body quote here]

It's not intellect, or a lack of vast physiological information; but your brain gets in the way of your training...And it's because your brain is lazy.

We have all been conditioned to be somewhat lazy, or perhaps it is just physics; the path of least resista...

On to day 9!

"Surviving in Minutes and Seconds"

It is extremely easy to get caught up, and overwhelmed, with, well, anything...

Tony Robbins once pointed out we can easily become overwhelmed with "something" especially, if that "something", is something we do not want to do.

He then gave an example of how an individual, when asked, "Why don't you go to the gym?", they responded with 16 inconvenient reasons on why they could not/sh...

Today is the last day of phase one!

Tomorrow, will be phase two where we start mental tactics and strategies to apply to workouts (and life). Today, is the last of "waking" you up and getting your mind right. Tomorrow we get to work, and we get to work hard!

Before that...ritual anyone?

Trigger - Recoil - Impact

It's time to get serious about actual tactics and strategies you will use to combat mental weakness in fitness. Granted, these techniques work outside of fitness too.

You battle mental weakness on a daily basis, whether it is struggling with motivation to start something, with the battle to push yourself while you are doing something, or with the ability to stay motivated for prolonged periods. You were...

Remember when I said I was going to step on a few toes??

Well, this one may hurt a little bit. Please excuse me as I step into the drill instructor mode...

Do you feel entitled?

Why?

You don't Deserve It!

You don't deserve a break...

You don't deserve that unhealthy meal...

You don't deserve to be coddled...

You don't deserve to have anything handed to you...

You want to be fit and healthy, you have to earn it. If you're not there, you...

Do you ever get hung up on a mistake?

Let the Incarcerated Dwell on Past Mistakes,

We Have Work to Do

Unless you have been court ordered to be rehabilitated by a correctional facility due to a "mistake" (broken law), there is no reason your mistakes need to be in your brain longer than 2 seconds...seriously.

Don't dwell, ever.

Today, we will talk about the ability to get over past mistakes, quickly, on a very, very micro view.
