Video #4 – How to Develop your Mental Toughness
Good Morning, Hi I’m Jim Pusateri – Coach P and your listening to the Good Morning Minute with Coach P. By now I hope you have listened to my other three videos which talk about my mental toughness or life story. When most people hear the phrase mental toughness they think it has something to do with physical strength, I’m here to tell you that you need some of that physical strength to remain mentally tough, but ultimately mental toughness is not about physical strength, it’s about mind strength, yes, your mindset that is what makes you mentally tough.
Mental toughness as I define it is the ability to Move forward under pressure. So, Mental Toughness is not something you are born with, it’s something you learn and it’s all about controlling your thoughts and how you mind reacts to setbacks, tragedies, events when you are under pressure.
I’m convinced that you need to develop certain mental toughness skills to be able to move forward under pressure. The 8 skills I believe you need to have are:
3. Positive Attitude
4. Welcome Change
5. Move Forward
6. Get to work
8. Proper Nutrition & Exercise.
All of those eight skills have nothing to do with talent you are born with, they all are controlled by YOU!
As we continue on with this video series on developing mental toughness I’m going to hit on the 5 P’s to Success, Yes Coach P is going to explain to you the 5- P’s to success which are the path to developing mental toughness.
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
Our video we release next Tuesday will cover the 1st P on the path to mental toughness: PASSION!
Your Mental Toughness Story is being written each and every day of your life, hopefully you have determined your passion and spend your time thinking and planning on obtaining it.
It’s a funny think when you have a passion (end game as I call it) you move in that direction no matter the odds. My life story should tell you that. I have continued on that journey through some of the toughest setbacks in life. But kept moving forward heck I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree when I was 56 years old, my Master’s degree when I was 58 years old and my teaching certification when I was 60 years old.
I’m currently in the process of looking for my next opportunity. I have to laugh as I go on interviews many look at me and say man he’s 60 years old what’s he doing here looks like he will be retiring in a few years. They are so wrong about me and have made the wrong assumption, you see whoever decides to hire me next is getting the best of me a person with so much experience, education and knowledge and the passion to move forward. What they don’t understand is I’m just entering the next step in my journey Teaching and coaching young adults how to become champions in life! That’s exactly what I will be doing for the next 20 years.
