Mental toughness (MT) is a scientifically validated, well-researched concept that builds upon constructs such as resilience, grit, mindset, risk assessment, and other areas of interest to a wide range of professionals. It has its roots in sports performance, but has a wide range of applications in numerous fields.
MT is the ability to recognize our perception of life’s challenges and how we approach (or avoid) difficult situations. MT has a great deal of evidence to support its use in education, psychology, social work, medicine, business, and coaching, among other areas.
