Mental Toughness Habits


Behavioral studies have proven that human beings are creatures of habit, and the better habits you build, the more success you will enjoy. Watch this short video I taped at FOX Studios in Atlanta after being interviewed on FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney Show. I’ll look forward to your comments.

    The tough thing is trying to get yourself to buy into this, good stuff though and I have been reading your work for while, great stuff, keep up the good work.

    As a way to measure – I am in sales if the results are there over time then the habits are working. It’s when they may dip from time to time and then for me to keep going is where the metal toughness can work.

  3. I am with the rest of you in staying on course. Having major depression is a constant battle to stay positive and to work steadily on developing and promoting my speaking presentations.

    No matter the best of intentions in fulfilling my schedule, I still have a bad habit of wasting time which I am trying to avoid like the plague.


  4. Creating habits even doing things you are passionate about doing can be dauntingly difficult to stick with and keep going. People seem to have different aptitudes for this.

    Years of good habits can suddenly fall apart and then comes a decline into bad habits new and old. People seem to have different aptitudes and commitment [mental toughness] towards keeping them and rebounding.

    First we build habits and then habits make us!

    Yep! You’re absolutely right Mike. I work on my bad habits every day and over the years I’ve really gotten better in a lot of ways and I’ve excelled in many areas of my life. There is always room for improvement for sure. Yes. I want to develop the kind of mental toughness addiction habit that’s way too painful to stop 🙂


  9. Keep getting better by the day, Lisa – if we stop that we go the other way and it starts immediately. We need the passion and mental toughness habits to become an addiction of muscle [body], mind and spirit habit too painful to stop. 🙂



  10. Lisa Gough says:

    Me too Mike. Procrastination and the lack of being organized are the two habits that come to mind that I must learn to break. I’m working on it. Getting better by the day 🙂

  11. One life long bad habit has been ignoring something that isn’t immediate but down the road will need to be taken care of and probably worse. An example from the past would be: the roof needs a little repair but let’s wait on it. Then one day the little repair is a big repair.

    “If it’s not urgent, let it go,” hasn’t always served me well.
