What is Mental Toughness and Why Is It Important?


 
Self Improvement
Through the years I have had the chance to coach many players and one thing I can tell you without reservation is the ideal players were all mentally tough. It's a tough concept to describe until you see it, but it's apparent when you see a player which has it.

To explain my point, not every one of the best athletes get it. No every big league player is mentally tough and there are many that never reach the large leagues which have great mental toughness. It's not about ability, I've coached many great athletes that didn't possess a clue about being mentally tough and would fold under pressure. They might work well when there was clearly nothing at risk, however when this game is at balance, or even the competition was tough, they often failed.

However, I've witnessed many players with average skills, but mentally tough, perform in such a way nobody thought they might perform. A clutch hit, a vital bunt, an excellent defensive play that stopped a rally, mentally tough players complete the job. Actually, the higher the pressure, the greater they perform.

Something I've arrived at understand with experience is the fact that mental toughness will not be an inborn DNA trait, but instead one which is developed with time and contact with adverse conditions. Preparation in mental toughness starts with experiences in a early age. Parents can enjoy a vital role to start the entire process of training mental toughness, however they need assistance as you go along. A disciplined educational system with higher expectations and good classroom rules, together with tough, but fair coaches (or mentors in alternative activities) having a positive mind set, is important to creating a child mentally, whether or not they are a sports athlete usually are not.

This is among the a lot of reasons why it's essential for all children to engage in balanced organized extra curricular activities in a early age: Karate, gymnastics, ballet, music, scouts, children and youth activities at church, or youth sports will play a role in starting to instill the discipline and structure that is required to build up mentally. Notice I said start to play a role. It requires some time and preparation.

Growth and development of mental toughness (and leadership skills) is another reason why athletes have to be involved with an effective training course when they may be 14 or fifteen years old. A training course not just helps you to build power, strength, and agility, but is essential in developing mentally. Players ought to be accountable to some mentor (trainer, coach, etc...) along with the camaraderie and pressure of the small peer group, even when it's only a couple of others.

In case a player is involved with a training course sooner than 14 or 15, it ought to be with regards to agility and speed training, together with teaching the correct approaches to strength conditioning without weights. Before any training course begins, please talk to your child's physician throughout their annual physical, as the creation of each child is different.

Defining Mental Toughness

Mental toughness is having the psychological advantage that enables someone to perform at peak maximum effort and efficiency throughout the demands which are put on them during training, practice, or competition. Specifically, once the demands are greatest or even the conditions become adverse.

Whenever the requirements would be the greatest occurs when the characteristics of mental toughness would be the best shown.

A few of the many characteristics which are evident whenever a player is mentally tough include:

- Self-confidence

- Self-motivation

- Focus

- Concentration

- Composure

- Calmness

- Poise

- Self-control

- Positive Energy

- Determination

- Persistence

- Leadership

Please be aware, this doesn't imply that the end result is definitely a win, oftentimes these attributes can display in the most throughout a loss, especially a detailed loss to some tough opponent or during adverse conditions. But with time along with careful training, the mental toughness of skilled players concerns light in championships won.

Developing Mental Toughness

To be mentally tough you must practice attributes which lead to mental toughness. If only there have been an equation to adhere to, however, there is not. It requires some perserverance underneath the right leadership to build up mental toughness. Parents, educators, coaches, as well as other mentors should be systematically active in the training process.

Also, it requires failure and the opportunity to recover. Lots of people develop mental toughness with the experience with failure. Good parents usually do not want their kids to fail and i also realize that. These days, way too many blame others for your failure. Parents are quick to blame the teacher for problems in class or perhaps a coach once the child will not be excelling within an activity. Mental toughness are unable to be developed properly when blaming others. Actually, the contrary is the situation.
