Mental Toughness is the ability to control your emotions, especially under pressure, so when I got booked to speak for one of the bar associations biggest chapters, I thought I was in the right place. After all, Trial Lawyers are known to be tough, logic-based critical thinkers. I knew I had to bring my A game to make an impact, but what I didn’t expect was to see them crumble under the weight of a single question. One innocent, carefully crafted question reduced them to rubble. The lesson I was trying to teach them was to employ logic-based critical thinking in the courtroom. In this video I tell the story, but beware, you may be offended by how I taught them this lesson. #personaldevelopment #mentaltoughness #criticalthinking

  1. Why should Christian lawyers be offended about questions concerning the Resurrection? As far as I can remember there were only 2 Resurrections. That of Lazarus and that of Jesus. These 2 Resurrections happened close to 2000 years ago. Since then, no one has ever risen from the dead. So why would these lawyers think that just because no one else rose from the dead, Jesus and, to some extent Lazarus, would be the only 2. In order for these lawyers to have witnessed that, they would have to be about 2000 years old. Since all of them come nowhere near that age, they could not have witnessed those miracles first hand.

    1. Luisa, the point is the lack of proof or evidence that anyone ever rose from the dead, including Jesus and Lazarus. The point I was trying to make was their lack of emotional control (mental toughness) when they were challenged on an emotionally charged subject. Thanks for your
