“Tough times don't last, tough people do.” - Robert Schuller

Mental toughness is a measure of individual resilience that helps you prevail in difficult circumstances. 

What are you doing to train your brain? 

Some questions we ask: 

  1. Why waste energy on things that you can’t control, including baggage from the past? (1:00)
  2. What do you get completely lost in doing and what calls to your soul? (2:00) 
  3. If the majority of people who don’t care about your decisions, why seek their approval? (4:00)
  4. When you are alone, do you listen to the demon that tells you to eat pizza when you are trying to get in good shape (7:00) 
  5. Did you know that our podcast has been in the making for 2 years?  (12:00) 
  6. What if you compared yourself to who you were 5 years ago and measured your progress? (13:00) 
  7. Are you thankful that you are able to eat and walk? (16:00) 

In this episode, we tap into the top 9 practices that you can emulate to build mental muscle. 

  1. Don’t make complaints or excuses. 
  2. Invest energy in the present.
  3. Do not devote your energy on pleasing others and follow your bliss.
  4. Don’t give up because failure should be reframed as an opportunity to learn and improve.  
  5. Enjoy your alone time and get to know yourself.   
  6. Be prepared to put in hard work because the world owes you nothing. 
  7. Don’t expect instant gratification and instant results because patience is a virtue.
  8. Your body can determine how your mind functions. 
  9. Modify unhealthy self-limiting beliefs 
  10. Practice gratitude because there is so much to be thankful for. 

Be persistent. Be patient. Show up on your journey. Mind over matter!
