Mental Toughness

Mental Toughness
My Business Coach, Pat Rigsby, posted these statements online today - they were aimed at business owners but they got me thinking. They are universal.
The mental focus needed to get healthy and then stay there should not be understated.
"Thoughts on Being Mentally Tough…
1. You’re not entitled to anything...you get what you earn.
2. Don’t dwell on the past...learn from it.
3. Don’t let others drag you down.
4. Great things always require perseverance.
5. Control what you can control.
6. Failure is part of the process...always.
7. Do the work."
The question I pose is, is it possible to bring this to multiple areas of your life?
Do you do any of the above points in other areas, do you do all of them?
Do I even?
I don't know, I certainly don't always feel like I do. Some days everything is a slog. I've had my fair share of failure so I am driven not to repeat it.
I do the work... but not always smart.
I definitely don't do no.5 well... I worked in loads of industries where I relied on so many other variables to mark success that I started to seek the idea of running my own business to be in control of my income and my creative outlet.
That comes with its benefits but also the downside is that I can often be greatly affected by things that may not phase other people.
I cannot control everything. The irony is that I have chosen jobs over the years that have a large amount of 'variables in' (music, books and health).
Which of these 7 points do you do regarding your health? Which do you do at work... can those two areas of your life learn from each other?
I certainly know that in health if you hold onto things too tightly you will struggle to progress.
If you do the work, then over time, months and perhaps years (yes! shock horror!) you can make a radical shift.
I have a business coach who basically addresses all these points with me every time we speak.
Its a process which I have to be honest. It's not always fun, in fact, I usually end the call with a list of things I should be doing that for some reason I've buried my head in the sand and not done.
I will get there because I want to.
Do you want to?
