Video #5 – Mental Toughness: Develop your Passion
In our last video, we discussed the eight skills needed to develop mental toughness. We define mental toughness as the ability 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.
In this video, we are going to discuss the first of the 5-P’s to success. You need to understand the 5- P’s to success which are basically the path to developing mental toughness.
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 first P is PASSION or our goals: remember that a dream is something we want to obtain in life, but a goal is something we plan to obtain in life, meaning we have written it down and broke it into action steps in order to achieve. A goal that is not written down is just a dream, a thought with no plan of action to complete. So, what is this thing called Passion: I say it’s that one thing in life that makes you tick, the one thing no matter what happens you always come back too. What is it that you would or are doing today for Free, because you love it so much. The answer is probably your passion in life.
Ask yourself these questions: What do I do in my free time? What do I enjoy the most out of each day? What do I look forward to each day? Inside those answers lies your passion. It’s not that easy to recognized but once you find it, make it your main goal or focus for everything you do in life. The secret to success is being able to have a passion that you can see no matter what is happening in your life. We all suffer setbacks and tragedy that derail us, but if you have that main passion, desire, and have written it down and made it a goal, you can get yourself back on track. You have to focus on that thorough those bad moment in life. Success is pretty simple, it takes the Mental Toughness to Move Forward under Pressure, never lose sight of your passion or end game as I call it.
Once you determine your passion, you must then write it down, break it into action steps or tasks that need to be done to complete it. Each and every day you should be working on one of those steps towards your passion. I can’t tell you how long it will take to find your passion and to obtain it, but I can tell you if you continue to Move Forward towards it each and every day no matter what happens you will arrive. The greatest thing about arriving is you find out that the arrival is just the beginning. I think it was Zig Ziglar who said: Go as far as you can see and when you get there you will be able to see farther. Life is journey if you are chasing your passion: otherwise it’s just a dead-end job!
