Michael Phelps’ Toughness
Every swimmer goes through challenging times, even the great Michael Phelps. It seems that the higher an athlete climbs, the more difficulties they face. Phelps was no exception, but he did have the mental, physical, and emotional toughness to handle it. Your mission is to watch this motivational video and list the things (he says) that have meaning to you.
Also, I want you to score your emotional toughness out of 10. You may never have heard of this term, but I feel it’s a little-known (yet essential ingredient) common to all great performers. Emotionally tough people maintain a laser-like focus on their goals and training by staying off the “emotional roller coaster” and avoiding drama in their lives.
