Entrepreneur and Director at Monarch Movements, Damian Crofts believes that mental toughness is one of the most critical skills for success in any field.
The London-based sales and marketing firm teach their staff and contractors to develop mental toughness, and they have published their five-step guide to help people develop theirs.
- Don’t complain
Venting frustrations is natural, however always moaning and complaining can have an adverse internal effect. Those with a mental toughness don’t waste their time on negativity, and instead, they adopt a positive attitude and become problem-solvers instead of problem-makers.
Rather than sitting back and waiting for success to come to them, those who are mentally tough are continually identifying opportunities and challenges and they have a sense of urgency to go out and make things happen.
“We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day” ~ Richard G. Scott.
At Monarch Movements, they argue that consistency is critical to getting results. The most successful people in their field are consistent in their actions, and that drives them to succeed.
Business is always evolving, and it’s important to be able to be flexible and adapt to any changes. Achieving mental toughness takes the ability to accept change and look for new ways and various solutions to a problem. “Mentally tough people can embrace change and adapt their game plan to get results under any circumstances,” said Mr Crofts.
- Emotional intelligence
Emotional intelligence is defined as “the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.” At Monarch Movements they consider emotional intelligence to be the cornerstone of mental toughness.
