What is mental toughness and how can we develop this critically-important characteristic in young athletes?
If you want to develop a peak performer, or learn how to become one yourself, this is the book for you! Time and again, mental toughness has proven to be not only a critical component of athletic success, but also important to success in life itself. As it relates to sports, it is the ability to mentally endure and thrive in adverse situations or circumstances and to push through any obstacles or opponents and achieve an intended goal. It does not matter how strong, fast, or skilled an athlete is, if they lack mental toughness they are probably never going to reach an elite level of achievement. So if you want to achieve a state of peak performance, it’s important to condition the mind, just as you would any other muscle in the body.
