Are You Mentally Tougher than
Time for a daily dose of mental edge motivation.
You may not like Chael Sonnen. That is not the point. I think it would be hard to say that the guy is not “mentally tough”
Can you learn from Chael? Listen to what he has to say.
Question- What does your body language say when you start to fall apart?
I had this same question asked to me at the recent Kokoro Camp 29.
Turn on this Youtube video and listen to it like an audio – there are key points that you need to hear.
As Kokoro cadre – we have the luxury of staying dry and watching and creating the chaos.
We see first hand the early signs when the wheels are starting to wobble and begin to shake loose on an athlete.
This is the time where you – the athlete – needs to gain back control. Take a deep breath – assess the situation and take measures.
Dont slouch your shoulders in – have shallow breathing. Look at the ground. Grimace your face.
Pull your shoulders back – put your chin up. Square your shoulders back and stand like a warrior. Have a small inner Kokoro smile.
These small steps will dramatically impact your mind and help you to make it through the next few minutes.
Try it. I dare you. We know that this works and it will help you survive and thrive in your next GoRuck, Kokoro, 20X, Tough mudder – you name it.
