Mental Toughness

Eric Potterat relates this study to sports and described the difference between winners and losers. “Physically, there’s very little difference between athletes who win Olympic gold and the rest of the field. It’s like the SEAL candidates we see here. Terrific hardware. Situps, pushups, running, swimming — off the charts, superhuman. But over at the Olympic center, the sports psychologists found that the difference between a medal and no medal is determined by an athlete’s mental ability. The elite athletes, the Tiger Woodses, the Kobe Bryants, the Michael Jordans — this is what separates them from the competition. Knowing how to use information.”
The difference between the average elite is the elite have the mental toughness to pay attention to details in normal and pressure situations. In any industry, the leader needs to develop his followers mental toughness by challenging them on daily basis. Eliminate your followers fears through constant repetition until they master a skill, which will remove any self-doubt. Over thinking is most humans problem in achieving greatness.
