Mental Toughness Is Critical. Core Skill Number 1
One of the first characteristics or traits that you need to master is learning to become mentally tough. You find that the vast majority of people will quit, stop or just give up at the first sign of hardship or when confronted with a brick wall. Being mentally tough relates to mindset and teaching yourself to fight for your desired outcome, rather than the ability to be aggressive.
Mental toughness is about the ability to take on adversity, regardless of the challenge and come through the other side. In other words you have to know your outcome and persevere with tenacity to reach that goal.
Many years ago I was in the police cadets, prior to becoming a full time police officer. It was a fantastic experience for me personally. A large part of what we did involved physical education, which included adventure training. Adventure training was a combination of mountain climbing, hiking and team building. As a group we would walk 40 to 50 miles with back packs, which contained everything that we would need to survive in the Welsh hills. We weren’t given special food packs, we carried tins of food and other such items, which were heavy.
Now although I was an athlete and used to train hard for events, When confronted with something like hiking, I would start slow, but always finish strong. Initially I would get left behind by the others on the first day. By the second and third day I would be at the front and quicker than anyone else. My fellow members were like hares for a while but were then overtaken by a persistent tortoise. Mental toughness and physical fitness go hand in hand, but if you are not mentally right, you can forget the physical side.
So mental toughness is essential for your journey, whatever that may be. So regardless of what happens to you, you just keep going, keep chipping away, keep putting one foot in front of the other. That is why only a few make it to the finishing line and most just fall away to mediocrity and abandon their quest. So which side of the fence do you want to be on?
Without mental toughness you will not succeed in life to any great degree. Network marketers need to prepare themselves for the long haul and how to deal with disappointments. Challenges will come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Obstacles normally come when you least expect them and in clusters. So accept and understand barriers will arrive and know you can overcome anything, if you really want to.
