“Mental toughness is the ability to focus on and execute solutions, especially in the face of adversity.

Greatness rarely happens on accident. If you want to achieve excellence, you will have to act like you really want it. How? Quite simply: by dedicating time and energy into consistently doing what needs to be done.

Excuses are the antithesis of accountability.

Important decisions aren’t supposed to be easy, but don’t let that stop you from making them.

When it comes to decisions, decide to always decide.

The second we stop growing, we start dying. Stagnation easily morphs into laziness, and once a person stops trying to grow and improve, he or she is nothing more than mediocre.

Develop the no-excuse mentality.

Do not let anything interrupt those tasks that are most critical for growth in the important areas of your life. Find a way, no matter what, to prioritize your daily process goals, even when you have a viable excuse to justify not doing it.

“If you don’t evaluate yourself, how in the heck are you ever going to know what you are doing well and what you need to improve?

Those who are most successful evaluate themselves daily. Daily evaluation is the key to daily success, and daily success is the key to success in life.

If you want to achieve greatness, push yourself to the limits of your potential by continuously looking for improvements.

Within 60 seconds, replace all problem-focused thought with solution-focused thinking.

When people focus on problems, their problems actually grow and reproduce. When you train your mind to focus on solutions, guess what expands?

Talking about your problems will lead to more problems, not to solutions. If you want solutions, start thinking and talking about your solutions.

Believe that every problem, no matter how large, has at the very least a +1 solution, you will find it easier to stay on the solution side of the chalkboard.

When you set your mind to do something, find a way to get it done…no matter what!

If you come up short on your discipline, keep fighting, kicking, and scratching to improve. Find the nearest mirror and look yourself in the eye while you tell yourself, “There is no excuse, and this will not happen again.” Get outside help if needed, but never, ever give up on being disciplined.

Greatness will not magically appear in your life without significant accountability, focus, and optimism on your part. Are you ready to commit fully to turning your potential into a leadership performance that will propel you to greatness.

Mental toughness is understanding that the only true obstacles in life are self-imposed. You always have the choice to stay down or rise above. In truth, the only real obstacles to your ultimate success will come from within yourself and fall into one of the following three categories: apathy, laziness and fear.

Laziness breeds more laziness. When you start the day by sleeping past the alarm or cutting corners in the morning, you’re more likely to continue that slothful attitude later in the day.”
