Dieses Buch macht Sie stark! Und das sofort! Depression und Burnout sind für Amy Morin keine Fremdworte: Auf den Tag genau drei Jahre, nachdem sie ihre Mutter verloren hatte, starb ihr Mann ganz plötzlich an einem Herzinfarkt. Morin wurde mit nur 26 Jahren Witwe und musste selbst lernen, nach diesen schweren Schicksalsschlägen zu mentaler Stärke zu finden. Sie nutzte den Umbruch zum Neuanfang. Die Psychotherapeutin und Sozialpädagogin Amy Morin weiß: Wir alle sind nur so gut, wie unsere schlechtesten Angewohnheiten es zulassen. Sie sind wie eine schwere Last, sie behindern, ermüden und frustrieren. Sie halten uns davon ab, unser Potential voll auszunutzen, sie führen zu Depression und Burnout. Unsere mentale Stärke und Resilienz steigern wir, indem wir negative Verhaltens- und Denkmuster ablegen, wie z.B. in Selbstmitleid zu versinken, sofortige Erfolge zu erwarten oder das Alleinsein zu fürchten. Freuen wir uns stattdessen auf Veränderungen, besiegen wir unsere Ängste, werden wir glücklich und erfolgreich! Der erste Ratgeber mit einem ganz neuen Ansatz zur Verbesserung der mentalen Stärke und der Resilienz: mitreißend, effektiv und überzeugend!
Mental toughness is one of the most common terms used in sport – by athletes, coaches, spectators and the media. However, it is also one of the least understood terms. This book examines the characteristics and development of mentally tough sport performers, and presents the cutting-edge research in this area. Within these chapters, the author proposes that mental toughness is a personality style and mindset, and presents a compelling case for its inclusion within the positive psychological paradigm. This second edition has been updated to include new material on the characterisation, conceptualisation, measurement, and development of mental toughness. As in the first edition the book includes a historical overview of empirical research, and also describes the conceptual arguments behind this research. Now packed with even more rigorous scientific evidence and bang up-to-date anecdotes from the world of sport, the book presents a fascinating explanation of why some athletes are successful, and how and why they stay on top. Mental Toughness: The Mindset Behind Sporting Achievement will be essential reading for all sport psychology, sport science, sport studies, and coaching students.

In all facets of life, most people strive for success. This could mean getting a promotion to vice-president, making the high school basketball team, having your children grow up to be good citizens, or getting the family together for holidays. Many of the elements of success are likely to include recovering from failure, short and long-term goals, perseverance, focused concentration, coping with adversity and keeping confident despite obstacles. To be successful requires many of these attributes and some people might consider them to be ingredients of mental toughness. But what is mental toughness? Let’s look at the following examples and you can decide whether the person is mentally tough or not. A basketball player is injured and despite the fact that he may re-injure himself and hurt his long-term career, he decides to play in the championship game to help his teammates. A businesswoman is feeling really sick but she has a big presentation scheduled for today. Even though she might not be at her very best she “sucks it up” takes some medicine and goes into work to deliver her presentation. Are these examples of mental toughness or not? Would your conclusion be any different based on the outcome of the situation? For example would you say the businesswoman was mentally tough if she gave a great presentation but should have stayed home if, due to her illness, gave a poor presentation? These are difficult decisions, and people will typically come to different conclusions concerning what is mental toughness. In this book, I will provide evidence regarding the meaning of mental toughness. Its component will be broken down and tips for how to build mental toughness will be provided. So get started on the journey of understanding mental toughness and taking concrete steps to become more mentally tough.

The goal of this book is to describe the concept of 'Mental Toughness' in such a way that the reader understands the concept and understands how it relates to the development of young people of all ages, whether they are in education or engage in extra-curricular activity. Such understanding is particularly important in the context of change and the challenge of preparing to live and work in a fast moving and fast changing world. One of the greatest challenges facing society today is that of developing young people who are the future generators of wealth so that they can play a full and productive part in the economic and social development of the world they inhabit and will inhabit. The need for this is particularly acute in the west where the old order is fast disappearing. The purpose of education and youth work is not only to ensure that young people are skilled and qualified. It must also prepare young people with the attributes and qualities that enable them to apply what they have learned in a challenging, changing and often stressful world. A number of initiatives have recently emerged which all have the same goal – to prepare young people for life in a world that demands resilience, confidence, tenacity and commitment in addition to vocational and academic skills. Possible the most important of these initiatives is Mental Toughness which, arguably, embraces most, if not all, of the other initiatives in producing the most comprehensive and enduring approach.

It is often said that 80% of what happens to us in life is based upon how we think. Initially, I wrote this as a letter to read to our children when they graduated from high school. I thought of this bookas I was driving down the road, takingour childrenfrom practice to practice and game to game. After we got past "how was your day?" There were many times with periods of awkward silence. Neither one of us knew what to talk about.This was a very difficult time for me. I am used to speaking in front of large crowds, but at this point I did not know what to say to my 10 year-old son. What was wrong with me? I felt foolish. So I stepped back, and analyzed my life and the lives of the successful people around me. I decided to teach my children about the things that it took me 40+ years of listening to my family, friends, mentors, taking seminars, reading books, listening to the tapes/CDs, etc. to learn to achieve success and happiness. There are hundreds of self help books, CDs, DVDs and seminars for adults. Why not teach this to kids and young adults? So I started talking to our children about positive life experiences and ways to lead a positive, happy, successful, productive life. This is what this book is about, helpingus to understand the game of life. I wanted our children to have a reference when struggling with the game of life and this book was the result of those efforts. This is a reference book that we can use again and againthroughout our life. Together we can change the world by recognizing one positive experience at a time.
Now with the growth of commercialisation, football is a multi-billion pound business that competes for scarce resources and uses, amongst other things, professional management techniques. Because of the increase and push towards efficiency, it has become of greater interest to players, coaches, administrators, spectators and owners to identify psychological attributes and mental skills associated with superior sport performance as a primary stage of facilitating their development. However, there has been little research into the emotional factors affecting footballers at different levels, in particular, the mental toughness and hardiness of footballers. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between mental toughness and hardiness of footballers and the level of football at which they perform. Mental toughness was assessed using the Psychological performance inventory. Hardiness was assessed using the Personal views survey III-R. Participants in the present study were 61 footballers from various clubs and 2 levels of performance: Playing recreational or elite football.Results are discussed relative to previous findings relevant to mental toughness and hardiness and future implications to aid the psychological development of footballers playing at different levels. Future research might concentrate further on psychological skills training, coping strategies and psychological preparation strategies in a wider variation of sports specific to a wider range of athletes, from grass roots to international level.

We train people in many areas of life but we seem to forget one critical area, training their heads. You give me a person that thinks he/she will succeed, and they probably will. This is a learned behavior. A person must be taught how to act/react in many different situations. This can be the difference between succeeding and not. People must be taught how to respond to such things as winning, loosing, failing forward, dealing with jealousy, refusing to lose, competitiveness, being coachable/teachable, goal setting, developing passion, perseverance, work ethic, dedication, etc. It is often said that 80% of life is between the ears. We currently focus on training the 20% that is mostly physical. This book is designed to give us the tools we need to begin training the 80%: the mental portion of life. Coupling the physical and the mental aspects of life will assist others in becoming the best they can be. This book is about training people to get the best out of their lives. Most importantly this book is designed to teach success skills that people can use for the rest of their lives and share with others. How will the people you care about learn these skills? By chance? In the back yard? If you don't teach them, who will? People have to be trained how to use these skills or they will never be able to use them. People cannot apply what they do not understand. Will you be the one to teach them the success skills they will use for the rest of their lives? If not you, who? If not now, when? What if nobody taught them? This book is a reference that many will use for the rest of their lives.
