Develop Mental Toughness

Minimal Motivation

The plan was simple. To work out as much as possible. Increase my fitness and to take part in as many running events as possible. And also to run a half marathon by the end of the year.

I just couldn’t be bothered. It was easier to relax and live comfortably.

This went on for most of the year until I decided to start boxing training again.

The Good Bit

Returning to boxing did kickstart my motivation for exercise a little but not to the level it was at before.

But, what has really relit my fire for fitness is listening to the people who overcome mind blowing challenges

There are endless amounts of videos on YouTube and interviews on various podcasts, T.V and radio stations with these people.

The mental toughness and determination of these people has really inspired me to get off my ass and look for some real challenges.

Listening to the stories of amazing people such as:

  • David Goggins
  • John Joseph
  • Courtney Dauwalter
  • Brain Rose and;
  • Rich Roll
