There are moments in our lives in which we feel the compelling need to change the status quo. Things brewed for too long, and need to be addressed.
We have worked hard for our success and to feel like the trade-offs we've made along the way are not worth it, is crushing.
And we feel we should be grateful because we’ve broken through the glass ceiling, so we try to convince ourselves that the relentless pressure is somehow okay.
Or is it?
You can enjoy more energy, calm, and focus.
And yes, you can actually socialize and have a personal life without guilt.
How do you train your mind to respond reliably, even in the toughest circumstances? How do you develop the ability to handle adversity with a clear, calm, and laser-focused mindset?
This takes mental fitness.
Mental fitness is the greatest predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform.
People with high mental fitness take fewer sick days than their co-workers and are less likely to become burned-out. Happy women (and men!) are more likely than their less happy peers to have fulfilling marriages and relationships, high incomes, superior work performance, community involvement, robust health and even a long life.
How many family and personal events did you miss in the last 6 months (or were not really present), because your mind was still dealing with something that happened the day or week before? Or was it planned for the following days?
Happiness leads to success, not the other way around.
