Mental Toughness, at its essence, is about a person’s ability to control and manipulate their emotions to serve their best interests. Like many things, it’s more difficult than it appears, especially under pressure. Emotional maturity is an important aspect of mental toughness, and millions of people struggle to break free of adolescent emotions that lead to immature behaviors and limited results.

  1. Hi Steve,

    I just finished your 21 day free video program. Thank you very much! I have lost 5 lbs. and will continue! Thank again for sharing!

    Take care!

  2. Some or all of us need to have an understanding of the areas we need help in to grow up and I believe that people are put into your life at the right time of your life to help you with situations that just pop up so that we can grow. All of us need help in some form or faction, I know and believe that this webinar is right on time because it is where I am looking at myself so that I can grow in areas that have hindered me from my childhood.

    Thanks Steve for your honesty keep up the good work

  3. Sadly, I’m currently around a 2-3. But this also leaves me with a question. Can you be a 7 in some areas and 2 in others? Or,could you be that number in all areas? I feel like I am mature in some areas but a complete mess in others. Feedback would be greatly appreciated

  4. Mental toughness secret #168, the great ones grow up.
    These are the same people that never invest extra effort into improving themselves, learning a new skill, or assessing how the can add value to where they work, or the world in general. And then they want to get an automatic raise to a “living wage” even though that is not what they are contributing to society.

    I doubt these people have any real “balls” to take home.

    I guess I have to give myself a 5. I would have said 5.5, but feeling the need to address the immature drags the score down.

  5. I think it was Voltaire who made this emotionally mature statement:

    “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend unto death your right to say it.”
