Over the past 18 years as a full-time professional speaker, I’ve worked with most of of the top thought leaders in the personal development space. My conclusion today is the same as it was back in 1996: Mental Toughness, the ability to control and manipulate your emotions combined with iron-like persistence, is the key to the world-class success. In my mind, that’s a given. The critical thinking question we all have to ask ourselves is; “do I have the mental toughness to get what I really want out of life?” Not what you’ll settle for, but what you actually want. Watch this short video I taped at the Civil War Battlefield at Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia, where one of the bloodiest battles of the civil war was fought. I’ll look forward to your comments.
