Publisher's Summary

Navy SEALs, Olympic athletes, champions - how did they get where they are? What’s the common thread that ties them all together? More importantly, what do they have that you don’t? 

If you look into their past, you’ll find every single one of them was just like you. Problems, weaknesses, poverty, prejudice. Normal human beings with normal human flaws. But if they weren’t born great, and they didn’t inherit it. How did they do it? What powered them through all the hardship? 

The answer: an unbeatable mind. A mind most will never experience. I’m talking about self-discipline, mental toughness, true grit. I’m talking about a mind-set you have to craft out of sweat, tears, and hard work.

You put in effort. You try. Sometimes, you fail. Eventually, you get better, and your mind starts to harden. Overcoming challenges becomes a way of life.

For instance, every Navy SEAL had to endure the kind of pain that would make most men give up before starting. Every Olympic athlete lost before they won, fought to the bitter end, trained till their body gave in. Every champion failed their way to success. They had no way to know if they ever would succeed, and the only difference between them and you is they discovered how to mentally grind away at what needs to be done, endure the pain and failure, and yet rise up every single time. They gained a mind-set that allowed them to go where few had gone before. They built certain habits that helped them see it through. That’s the difference between them and you. Just like them, you can create powerful change.

In this audiobook, I will show you:

  • How to take your mind from fragile to hardened steel so you can utilize the mind to its full potential.
  • The secret to gain Navy SEAL levels of self-discipline in your life to become relentless.
  • A quick fix for emotional weakness that will create an unbeatable mind.
  • The proven seven rules for success and the one simple trick to long-term perseverance.
  • The transformation technique used by athletes and elites to train their body and mind even when they have no gas left in the tank.

If you’re tired of quitting too soon and you’re ready to pull your life together, scroll up and order your copy of Mental Toughness and True Grit now!

Great book

The author is direct and to the point on explaining how to create solid habits to form a positive attitude and tough mindset. --- I have read other books on this topic and none of them ever covered the value of black coffee, mindless eating and how certain addictions weigh on mental toughness. It's food for thought.

Reads like a conglomeration of blog posts

This book is hot garbage. It reads like a collection of bland blog posts copied off the internet. The author establishes no credibility with his audience, nor is the content backed up by facts or research. The publisher should be ashamed. Don’t waste your money or more importantly your time.

This book can change your life.

The friend that knows you can be better and makes you want to do better. The friend that asks you all the questions that need to be asked to overcome whatever it is you are working toward. This is a book worth listening for anyone who wants to lead themselves to create the life they desire.

Compiled information

The information in this book is good. It is a compilation of information from other sources brought together. The delivery is fast and sounds like a report of information, which it is, not very motivational.

Don't waste your time, credits or money ----JUNK

Hahaha. Unless you are willing to enter into a "legal agreement" just by reading/listening, don't pick up this book. Before you even get started, a legal disclaimer is read stating that that states that you as the reader agree to hold the author and publisher harmless???? Also stated is that the information is for entertainment purposes only...really? What are they going to suggest you do, go pick a fight with a gorilla? Ridiculous!!! Needless to say, I could not get through the first chapter. The material is something you might expect to find on a high school book report where the student is trying to cram as much fluff into each page to meet the assignment requirements. Don't waster your time and save your money.

Amazing book

Well written and well structured book - some great tips and tricks to get started, and more importantly, to keep going on the road to mental toughness. Having recently started my own business, had some successes, but also a few setbacks, I like the framework set out in the book and look forward to applying the techniques described.

The information provided in this book is broadly divided into two parts. The first part consists of information about mental toughness and the second part consists of the different things that you can do for becoming mentally tough.

Boring book, terrible narration

Struggled to finish this book. It seems like a collection of 'tips' without strong points to back them up. The writting style is not at all motivating - quite the contrary to be honest, as it feels like the author is commanding you to follow his advice instead of suggesting certain changes in your lifestyle. The narration doesn't help either. The narrator fails to communicate with the reader, the narration is monotonous, and there is absolutely no emotion/reaction in the narrators voice, all of which make it extremely hard to follow.

found excellent information

After listening to this book and found excellent information I favored this book. I learned things about myself and how to feel much improved and more grounded in some problematic situations. This is a bewildering book with some better methodologies for thinking. The essayist gives a phenomenal framework for structure up your mind. It's an update that you can accept accountability for your cerebrum and life yet just in case you are enthusiastic enough.

This book is so educational!

I cherished the section on blaze listening. I would prescribe it to those searching for mental personal development. Extremely smart with genuine precedents. I highly recommended this book!
