# 1. WHAT IS MENTAL TOUGHNESS

The first thing we need to discuss is WHAT EXACTLY IS “MENTAL TOUGHNESS”?

Many coaches, athletes and commentators discuss and talk about what it is and what it exactly means in sports. But only about 12 years ago did one of the pioneers in this science develop a generally accepted definition for the term.

Dr Jim Loehr defines Mental Toughness as:

“the ability to consistently perform towards the upper range of your talent and skill regardless of competitive circumstances.”
Mental Toughness is all about developing your minds ability to always work in your favor and for your greater benefit; not only sometimes  or even worse; working against you as it sometimes does.”

Another definition is:

Mental toughness is “Having the natural or developed psychological edge that enables you to: generally, cope better than your opponents with the many demands (competition, training, lifestyle) that sport places on a performer; specifically, be more consistent and better than your opponents in remaining determined, focused, confident, and in control under pressure.” (Jones, Hanton, & Connaughton, 2002).
