Mental toughness is just as important as physical talent because
your mind influences your performance as much as your physical skill
does, possibly even more so. At higher levels of athletic competition
when players physical skill levels are comparable, psychological skills
(mental toughness) trump physical skills! Although most teaching pros
and coaches concur this is true they often fail to make mental skills training part of their lessons and daily practice. Most often they don't have the
time or the expertise to coach mental toughness.
Winning is one of the main objectives in sports but winning requires consistent performance at a high level. Mental toughness helps ensure this consistency, guarding against fluctuations in performance. Simply stated: If you
want to take your game to the next level you must incorporate mental toughness. It is The IntegratedApproach to Excellence!
