Mental toughness

Almost everyone as a child dreams of achieving something incredible. Many of us believe that we have a gift, that we have something inside of us capable of achieving something incredible. Mentality is what separates the top athletes from everyone else in any sport. A champion’s mindset and work ethic enhances their natural abilities, just as you can build physical strength through hard training, you can also build mental strength through deliberate practice and training - Simon Boulter Unleash the Champion Within
