Mental Toughness: Progressing – Move Forward – Video #8
In this video, we are going to discuss the 4th P of the 5-P’s to success. The 5- P’s to success are the principles you need to develop to obtain the mental toughness needed to succeed.
The 5-P’s are:
1. Passion-your ultimate goal
2. Perception: Who we think we are
3. Perspective: Who we really want to be
4. Progressing: A Moving Forward mindset
5. Perseverance- Don’t quit – Never give-up
The 4th P is Progressing: Actually my favorite of the 5-P’s because I truly believe it is the secret to success, the secret to obtaining anything you want in life. Progressing is a move forward mindset. A growth mindset that always has a need to improve. You have to have this progressing move forward mindset which is the Mental Toughness to continue forward towards your dreams. Remember Mental Toughness is the ability to MOVE FORWARD under pressure.
Progressing is defined as the advancement or development toward a better, more complete outcome. Simply put Move Forward through whatever is in your way to achieving your dreams, your passion in life, your next goal. Most people let a small failure derail their success, once the process gets a little tough, a high percentage of people can’t get passed the setback.
I know it’s easy to say just move forward, but actually doing it takes hard work and determination. I can tell you this I have overcome some huge failures and major life setbacks over the years. I have built some successful companies, but on the other hand I have suffered through losing everything after companies have failed. I have started my life over several times and can state with experience, the only way to get to that endgame your passion in life is to keep your eye on the target and continue progressing- moving forward toward it. Remember “it’s not how you start but how you finish”.
Some of you listening today may have suffered some major tragedies’ in your life the ones you just can see a way of overcoming. I myself have suffered some of these very things like the loss of a child and have found the only way to get pass the sadness, the questioning of Why? Is to focus on the bigger picture, your life mission or passion. You cannot let things that happen in the past control your future.
Personal tragedies are the worst kind of adversity, whatever the tragedy may be: a loss of child, close family member, best friend, maybe a job, a failed business. Many people can never recover from this, they fall into an attitude of bitterness and hopelessness that never seems to go away. There are so many things that seem to hold us back in life: rejection, resentment, loss of love ones, hurt feeling, damaged pride, you must let these go and progress, move forward toward that bigger mission in life. You must change the story or message within your mind. It is a “WHAT’S NEXT” thinking that gets you over the ruts, the setbacks and tragedies in life.
So how do we make this incredible change in mindset? We must move passed the learned helplessness or closed mindset and develop a growth mindset a progressing move forward attitude at all times. What I have found through my years is that this closed mindset is a result from experiencing some type of uncontrollable event that causes people to expect future failure. They have learned that success means your good and they have concluded that any setback or difficulty is a failure and means they are not good. It is at this time of your life that you cannot let these events control you and your mind. Remember this depression or lack of motivation is normal and part of the grieving process the trick is don’t live there move forward develop a growth mindset.
The mental toughness to succeed or overcome these events is the art of Progressing-Moving Forward daily no matter what happens keep your sights on the long-term goal and do something daily towards achieving that goal. It’s in these daily action steps that you will develop the mental toughness to overcome your depression and lack of motivation.
