The concepts of mental toughness are simple to understand and, with the right mind set, are easy to implement. Richard Bond's aim is for you to take the understanding you gain from this book to train your mind, just like you would in any other discipline. Knowledge on its own is not enough; you need to practice. For example, you might know how to perform a bench press, but that alone won't allow you to bench 500 pounds. You need to train, rest, grow, and adapt over time to get to that level.
Would you like to know how to complete a marathon? To many people, having the desire to run a marathon is a mystery. But to others, it's one of the most natural activities in world.

"A Quick Informative Read.."
I've been a Fitbit user for some time now, and it took me some time to get the hang of its unique features. I checked on the main website and some other forums, but I learned most of what I know by experimenting with it. I've written this short guide to help the new Fitbit user. This is an honest assessment of my experience. There are some things I would change, which I'll come onto later, but overall I've been very pleased with it. I hope you in turn find some value from this guide, and make the most of this fitness tech.
