Best practice report: Mental Toughness

February 23, 2015 by Limited


Mental toughness-or resilience-is an indispensable part of our lives. Resilience can help carry you through the relentless stresses and difficulties associated with managing a career and thriving in your personal life. Resilience is not an innate characteristic: it can be learned. You can become stronger and hardier by learning methods for developing:

  • control (self-belief and emotional strength)
  • commitment (the desire to set and achieve goals),
  • confidence (to enhance your abilities and your relationships),
  • courage to face challenges (by taking risks and learning from setbacks). [1]
