A Powerful Why is your deep-rooted purpose and driving force that keeps you going when the going gets tough.

Your Powerful Why isn’t just a reason to finish a difficult task; it’s a powerful emotional connection to what truly matters to you.

It’s the fire in your belly that pushes you to push through obstacles and setbacks.

Your own Powerful Why might be rooted in your desire to create a better future for your family, chasing a lifelong dream, or proving something important to yourself. No matter where it comes from, it’s the emotional charge that fuels your determination.

When you find your Powerful Why, it’s like discovering your own superpower – a source of inner strength that empowers you to go the extra mile when others might give up.

What is Mental Toughness?

Mental toughness is a perspective that shapes how we navigate through demanding situations. This psychological construct finds various interpretations across different domains such as the military, sports, business, and education.

Mockingbird defines mental toughness as a collection of resiliency-based skills and attitudes essential for persevering through the challenges of learning, even in the face of learning fatigue or temporary demotivation. In this context, mental toughness is not an inherent quality but rather a set of learned skills and character traits that can be nurtured and cultivated. This comprehensive approach identifies mental toughness as a fusion of four core elements: confidence, control, commitment, and the ability to embrace challenges.

Mental Toughness is the ability to cope and thrive under stress, adversity, and challenging situations.
