Gentlemen! being mentally tough is something that each and every one of us needs to possess in order to kick life’s butt. Because if you’re weak mentally everything’s going to bother you. You’re gonna get triggered you’re going to not succeed because you cannot handle adversity. You are not mentally strong. The world is going to kick your butt because the truth is life is not fair. We are going to have challenges. We’re gonna have struggles. Things aren’t going to always go our way. But if you’re strong emotionally you can handle it today. Gentlemen I’m going over three daily habits to build mental toughness.
1. Get Better Friends
The first tip to build mental toughness is to get better friends to be strong mentally. You can’t surround yourself with people that are just like oh whatever Brian. You’re amazing you’re awesome. No, you don’t need to lose weight you’re good just the way you are. You need to be around people that will tell you like it is. Constructive criticism I’m not saying that you need to be around people that are constantly picking and negative and criticizing everything about you. But if they’re not willing, to be honest you definitely need to get better friends because we cannot afford to be around people that are too big of losers. To tell us the truth. True friends are people that tell you the truth they tell you what you need to hear as opposed to what you want to hear. And unfortunately, it’s not always comfortable it’s not always kind. But at the end of the day, you need to surround yourself with people that are going, to be honest with you.
The second daily habit that will definitely build mental toughness is exercise. So those of you who are familiar with the gentleman David Goggins he has a saying that exercising calluses your mind. And when I heard this it totally made sense to me. When you push your body to places where it’s not comfortable whether or not it’s running lifting weights doing squats deadlifts whatever I’m doing this over and over again your mind gets stronger it develops calluses so that when life throws you a curveball or something that’s not pleasant you’ve got the tools and the capability to handle it.
3. focus on one thing
The third thing to build mental toughness is the focus on one thing and finish it right. Because that’s something that I know that I struggle with from time to time. I’ll try to like multitask. Thirty-seven different things when really I should focus on one thing and get it done. You can learn to focus on a task. Get it done you’re going to be amazed at how much easier it is to complete other tasks. But when you try to multitask guy 37 things right you’re like I’m going to do this. And then a little bit of this and that and maybe back to this all over the place and what ends up happening is nothing gets done. Focus on one thing and do it.
4. learn more than you knew the day before
the fourth Daily habit to build mental toughness is to learn more than you knew the day before. My grandfather was one of the greatest men to ever live. Frank is certainly one of my heroes and he used to say something to me that education is never too heavy to carry out of a ditch. Now back then I was like Grandpa you’re crazy. Now my dude’s a genius. What skills you have the more information that’s packed into that big brain of yours the better equipped you’re going to be to handle life.
