Have you taken the Mental Fitness Challenge yet?
One week since its launch, and already I’ve seen the positive impact of the Mental Fitness Challenge in myself and in others. As leadership expert Claude Hamilton writes, “The LIFE products provide the tools to change yourself for the better so that you can live the life you always wanted.” And taking the Mental Fitness Challenge (LIFE’s flagship product) is a guided way to help grow us, mold us, and shape us into the people we need to become to achieve the life we’ve always wanted.
Chris Brady, a best-selling author and leadership guru, wrote a wonderful analogy comparing his difficulty to stay at his run to the difficulty to persist on the road to success:
I was in the middle of my run yesterday and fighting to stay at it. If you’ve worked out much at all, you know what I’m talking about. You hit that point where your heart is beating, your sweat is flowing, your lungs are working, your legs are throbbing, and you just want to quit. It’s as if a little voice in your head says, “Go ahead, wimp out, slow down, stop, no one will know. What difference does it make, anyway? Just a few less steps here or there aren’t going to make THAT big of a difference in your health!” And on it goes.
…And really, it’s at that sticking point, when you want to quit, when that little voice tries to talk you into wimping out, that your mental toughness must kick in and rescue you. As Orrin Woodward likes to repeat the famous phrase, “When the going gets tough the tough get going!”
This is what the Mental Fitness Challenge is designed to do to your whole life. Not just in the area of physical fitness, to which it most certainly applies, but also to every aspect of your life. The principles of successful living are the same no matter which category we care to consider.
Success demands we become mentally tough. So go ahead. Take the Challenge!
