Mental Grit isn’t just about mental toughness; rather it is about deliberately and intentionally making the tough decisions that need to be made in order to accomplish success. The deliberate and intentional decision to go harder when your body is telling you that one more rep, step, or move will land you in despair. The decisions to look inside and be honest with the performer you are, see the performer you want to be and then act upon the journey to get there. The decisions to DO when you don’t want to and the decision to act in the face of fear.
You see, there is a gap between what science knows and what performers do. You already know how important the mental game is; now I ask, what are you going to do to train it. Most don’t realize this but what science knows is that you can become more confident, more positive, and more in control of your thoughts. You can be more focused, more resilient, and more consistent. You can train your mind and when you train your mind you are giving yourself the best chance at becoming the performer you want to be on the big stage. You are optimizing your potential; you are Mental Grit!
