Mental Strength

Mentally strong people keep task-focussed and are more persistent than their colleagues who falter and give up.  They have a significant competitive advantage in personal productivity and employment value.
Feeling constantly overwhelmed is an indication of a dangerously high level of stress which will have negative effects on you, affecting your productivity, your colleagues and your loved ones. 
Mental Strength training teaches you the processes and provides you with the practical tools to remain composed under pressure and to be less vulnerable to emotional slumps.  It offers you the opportunity of experiencing more happiness at work and at home.
The good news is that Mental Strength can be developed.   Mental Strength builds resilience and resilience enables you to “bounce back” after experiencing stressful life events such as significant change, adversity and hardship.  Most importantly, Mental Strength incorporates the concept of emerging from adversity stronger and more resourceful.
With Mental Strength training, you can:
  • Expect to let go of the past, live your life in the moment and strive to be as present as you are able;
  • Admit past mistakes without self-blame;
  • Realistically interpret the impact of negative events, preventing them from having an on-going negative impact;
  • Realistically interpret the impact of positive events as having a widespread and ongoing, lasting effect;
  • Experience optimism more frequently at work and in your personal life.
