Surviving to Thriving – Mental Toughness (Steve Harris)
Chapter 3. MENTAL TOUGHNESS DEFINED
The components of mental toughness
The components that constitute the mental toughness model have a logical sequence, even though each one can stand alone as an independent factor. Individually they provide us with opportunities to improve the skills needed to become mentally tougher. Most benefits accrue when you use the following components interdependently.
3. Controlled aggression
5. Calculated risks
6. Competence, and
Start with the first and work your way through to the last. Benefits then grow synergistically and exponentially as they start to feed off each other.
Reassemble yourself to be better than before
When you learn the skills and behaviours needed for each mental toughness component, you can reassemble yourself to be better than you were before. You develop a self-authoring mind to balance your socially conditioned mind.
If you do this, you can become the best person you can be and make it difficult for your competitors to contend with you. In addition, you could atone for any lapses of performance in the past. You cannot go back and make a new beginning, but you can start over and make a new present. Moreover, while the journey towards becoming mentally tougher can become one of your goals, gaining mental toughness is an ongoing quest.
Mind and body form one interlinked system. Your body responds to your mind and vice versa. Think about how your mind reacts to feeling sick: Daily tasks become difficult to accomplish, and general motivation to execute these tasks decreases. When you feel anxious or sad, your body’s ability to perform even the most automatic of tasks becomes difficult. Your breath is shorter, your heart beats faster. A feedback loop between your body and mind exists and influences your daily life in a balancing act of give and take.
Most people have an ingrained preference for physical tasks over mental tasks. However, we can strive for supremacy in both. The route to physical and mental excellence is based on choices. It hinges heavily on combining natural inclination with learnt skill and behaviour.
