Mental toughness is needed to move beyond mediocrity.
Mankind on better days rises to the pinnacle of success, on lesser days mediocrity reigns.
The greatest of champions with win after win at some point meets his match and goes down in defeat.
Life as we know does not end because you are defeated in a single battle by your foe.
There will be wars and rumors of war until the end of all time.
As a dentist in KC it is understood, while confronting the pain and suffering of emergency dental care, all battles of tooth decay and periodontal disease will not be won by every patient.
Losing a battle can identify your weaknesses, helping devise strategy that improves existing conditions.
Identification of weaknesses provides the opportunity to strengthen and fortify your flanks.
An enemy will scout weak points in your fortifications and exploit them to your demise.
Move beyond mediocrity keeping your head in the game.
Keep your head in the game controlling emotions so that you can focus.
Guerilla warriors attack superior forces using their weakness, fewer soldiers, to keep warfare going on for years.
An army with superior forces may quit and go home because of attrition in personnel, supplies or morale.
Emotionalism is not dependable under fire allowing adversaries to manipulate you, pushing your buttons.
War movies are known for displays of emotionalism where a soldier jumps from his foxhole in anger, because of brutality inflicted upon a close comrade..
In the movie “Platoon” Charlie Sheen with intelligence, assessed his foe, focused on their strategy to defeat his comrades, and became the ultimate warrior meeting his enemy with a fist of fury.
We are willing to follow those who rise above mediocrity leading us on to victory.
Charlie Sheen got out of his foxhole anticipating the enemy would blow it up, by having good observation skills and keeping his head.
The solider that hunkers down and fights the smart fight saves the day as a stable force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
Performing at a high level is not a matter of coincidence or luck.
High level performances occur with the development of skills mastered from daily routines.
Development of skill sets from daily routines keep performance at a high level.
In most cases you create by attracting what is desired.
Rise above mediocrity with mental toughness.
