The Rio Olympic’s Swimmers Scandal has cast a dark cloud over what should have been a celebration. USA Swimmer Ryan Lochte, a 6-time gold medalist, and three younger swimmers decided to urinate on a gas station wall and vandalize the bathroom in Rio after a night of drunken debauchery. To add insult to injury, Lochte went on international television and claimed to have been robbed. Lochte made a cleverly concocted PR laced apology on the Today Showin an effort to save his endorsement deals, but his sponsors wisely dumped him. Absent from the story: The US Olympic Committee, who says they will investigate. I’ve done 19 TV, radio and print interviews in the past few days regarding the story calling on USOC CEO Scott Blackmun to take action, but as I predicted, they have done nothing. Watch this short post on my mental toughness solution to this situation and I’ll look forward to your comments.
The most common question I get is “What exactly IS mental toughness?” Watch this short video I taped in Salt Lake City after my interview on Good Morning Utah for the answer. I’ll look forward to your comments.

Thanks to everyone who commented on the Middle Class Demonization of the Pharmaceutical Industry. Fantastic feedback! (I learned a lot)
I’d like to encourage everyone in this community to pass on the mental toughness message by becoming a mentor or coach to someone. Kids, co-workers, spouses, family members, etc. Your coaching in this area may be the only exposure someone has to the world class philosophy. For assistance, download a copy of my ebook, Coaching 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class. This book has 1,062 critical thinking questions to ask the person/people you’re coaching. You can read the first 5 chapters at www.coachingmentaltoughness.net Steve Siebold, CSP, CPCS (5:24)
No other industry in America has been demonized more than the pharmaceutical industry. The middle class loves to criticize pharma companies for high prices and the commercialization of life saving and extending drugs and vaccines…UNTIL someone they LOVE gets sick. That’s when they rely on pharmaceutical companies to make them or their loved ones well. This is a classic example of middle class thinking and a severe lack of mental toughness. Pharmaceutical sales people are not only some of the finest professionals in selling, they are also some of the most caring I’ve ever worked with at Mental Toughness University. They are the most misunderstood and under appreciated sales people in business today. Listen to this post and I’ll look forward to your comments. Steve Siebold, CSP, CPCS ( 6:20 )
