One of the greatest mental toughness secrets of the world class is laughing in the face of fear and uncertainty. If you’ve ever lost everything you own, you know it’s not funny. But the way you represent any event in your mind will determine how your mind and body responds to it. I can remember waking up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding out of my chest terrified on how I would pay the rent after losing everything I had. What I learned was the one thing no one can take from you is the way you think. I decided to take a tip from the great ones I had interviewed over the years and laugh at my lot in life. I decided to tell myself I was best under pressure and I would be a millionaire again in 5 years. My midnight worry turned into working until midnight, and things started turning around. 5 years later I was earning 7-figures again. What I learned was no matter how bad it gets, if you learn to lighten up and laugh at yourself and the craziness of life, you’ll be healthier, happier, and in the right mindset to win again. Listen to this post for more ideas in this area and laugh all the way to the bank! You can do it! Steve Siebold (6:30)
