"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman."

- Anais Nin

Many claim to have it, yet few can define it
It is not something we are all born with
and few can be taught to attain it
but it is the base of what we yearn for- success

Talking the game doesn’t cut it.
Could of beens whine about the lack of it
Winners don’t tell any one they have it
It shows in the passion in their eyes

The sport isn’t just a game of skills, it is
a way of life- a constant challenge to
become the best, and these guidelines change day
to day, because mental toughness is playing
against the game itself, not a certain opponent
It doesn’t matter how good anyone else 
is, only how good you can be day in and
day out. The mind can overcome any 
obstacle to achieve a true desire

You have seen them; the ones that make it look
easy, their mind has this power. It is through the 
hours of staying when everyone else 
went home, it is watching their heroes and 
imagining doing the same thing. It
is believing in the mind that no one is better.

Mental toughness is thinking before you
perform, yet not knowing you even thought
before the task was done, it is leading when 
no one else has the courage to lead, and it
is sacrificing your body, giving your heart,
and working beyond requirements

discipline, repetition, constant learning and
believing in your self can give you the
gift of mental toughness. Skills come by fairly
easily, but only the true athletes possess the definition

I question why he hates me and has been known to pee on my stuff


This really captures  my bulldogs intense and psychotic  love of brussels sprouts. Raw Kale and asparagus arent far behind 


What strength training, swimming, mile track repeats with a 6:12 PR, 3 hrs of phone consultations and an hour meeting look like. Hungry and tired!
