Performing under pressure requires mental toughness, in other words, emotional control. This is one of the most misunderstood concepts in psychological performance training. Some people believe that mental toughness is something with which we are born. Not true. Mental toughness is something we learn. It requires a foundational understanding of what pressure is, and how to reduce or eliminate it. Once you know what you’re dealing with, you can adjust your thinking to instantly reduce the pressure you’re experiencing. In this episode of the Mental Toughness Podcast, I explore the gritty details of how to perform under pressure. #mentaltoughness #personaldevelopment
