Criterion Worldwide Discusses The Importance of Mental Toughness
Why is it important to have a tough mentality? There’s a unique quote by Gautama Buddha, he said, “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” This is very true. When you develop your brain to only allow positive occurrences you won’t let the bad ones in. If you are always thinking the worst, the worst will definitely happen because you have trained your mind to believe that. But if, even for a moment you let yourself believe great things will happen you will automatically develop a desire to reach that goal and accomplish it. “Luckily there is a way to combat and get through any difficult problem that comes across. Different skills can be learned and utilized to make sure you get through any situation,” says Lewis Morton of Criterion Worldwide. All you need to do is decide what you want to let in and what you don’t. Once you have that down, nothing can come between you and your goals.
“When we face challenges, obstacles or setbacks on the route to success our initial response is to stop doing what we’re doing. Our mind can’t handle defeat so we tend to retreat from any issues,” mentions Lewis Morton, Managing Director of Criterion Worldwide. At Criterion Worldwide, we believe this is the where the problem lays. Difficult situations should never overwhelm an individual to a point where they give up their goals and take a step back. On the contrary, this should have the opposite effect. Workers and representatives, as individuals should want to move forward because these difficulties are making it impossible for them to reach their goals. “Fortunately, there is a way to tackle and take on any difficulty and problem that arises. There are various skills that develop one’s mindset and you can learn the skill of mental toughness,” mentions Lewis Morton of Criterion Worldwide.
Another great skill to attain mental toughness is by building a continuous flow to good energy. Starting with smaller victories and then building your way into bigger ones. Perhaps you said you would go a day without drinking wine, then accomplish it. By challenging yourself with smaller goals then slowly working on the bigger ones, this builds momentum and mental endurance. “This type of skillset definitely helped me. I focused on smaller things and then I worked on achieving the bigger ones, I find this technique very useful for building mind momentum,” mentions Lewis Morton of Criterion Worldwide. This will then let you handle any adversity placed in your way, step by step and making it easier to achieve your desired success. It’s important to note that something as simple as “mindset” can be quite challenging to achieve. It takes a lot of time and practice to attain mental toughness but once you get it down you’re essentially building a lifestyle for yourself. At Criterion Worldwide we know that all our workers have this mindset and put it forward in their personal and professional life/goals!
