It all comes to finding an arena you’re suited to play in. That’s fancy talk for finding something you’re good at. Something that fits you. Shaquille O’Neil is a great athlete but he’d make a lousy horse jockey. 

Once you find your arena, you have to have the courage to jump in. To take action. To risk looking like a fool.

The courage to take action comes from believing that your dream is possible. Most of that you’ll be learning in this blog will be how to get yourself to believe that you are capable of realizing your dream. Once you believe, taking action is easy.

Once you get started, I guarantee that you will encounter obstacles. So you will need the courage to endure, to not quit. As long as you don’t quit you’ve still got a chance to win.

The courage to persevere comes from your desire. How bad you want something will determine what makes you quit. I’ll teach you some techniques Olympic athletes use to fuel their desire.

Finally, you have to have a winning attitude. You need to have the attitude that you are willing to do whatever it take for as long as it takes.

Success is simple but it’s not easy. It takes mental toughness. And that’s what we’re going to talk about in this blog. How to become so mentally tough that you are like a guided missile that has it’s coordinates and will not miss.
