Achieving peak performance requires serious mental resilience.

Here’re 7 core principles you can quickly adopt to become unbreakable:

— Thread —
Challenges are opportunities

Adversity makes or breaks you.

See challenges as opportunities and you become stronger.

See them as burdens and you suffer.

Each challenge you overcome becomes a stepping stone to dominate the next.
Control what you can

Worrying steals from you.

But most worries are pointless.

If you can’t control them, you can’t change them.

Outside of your control:
• Weather
• People’s actions
• Circumstances

Within your control:
• Your attitude
• Your actions
• Your response
Decide your purpose

Purpose is life’s rocket fuel.

As Nietzsche said, “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how”.

Purpose is a north star. It directs your effort and energy. It keeps you on track.

Attach meaning to your struggle and you create a reason to be strong.
Have a growth mindset

There are 2 types of mindset:

1. Growth
2. Fixed

Growth Mindset:

• I learn from failures
• I can get better
• I can learn to do anything

Fixed Mindset:

• Failures define me
• I can never get better
• I’m just not good at it
Your narrative is king

If you don’t think it can be done – it can’t.

If you know it can – it can.

Self-belief is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Be solution oriented

When something goes wrong.

What’s your inner dialogue?

Problem oriented:

•Life is hard

Solution oriented:

•I can get X done

Looking for solutions makes you strong.

Looking for problems makes you weak.
Pick your tribe

Humans evolved in tribes.

We need support to succeed.

Any athlete has a team behind them.

In life you need people you can count on too.
Build relationships from which you can grow.

The people you interact with will make you stronger or weaker.

Drop the ones who put you down.

Double down on the ones who support you.
It can always be worse

When life deals you a tough hand, remember:

It can always be worse.

Got into an accident?

At least you’re alive.

Need to have surgery?

At least you can have one.

Realizing things can be worse makes you feel grateful.

And this makes you resilient.
