dr steve harris is a successful business man, an academic, a world champion sportsman, a former mind coach for an international sport team and a conference speaker. this is the background that has spawned a book on mental toughness. it is based on the outcomes of his phd thesis and more importantly goes beyond his scientific truths delving into what leaders in the field and authors claim about mental toughness and how you can master your mind.
steve’s research indicated that mental toughness can provide you with a unique and sustainable competitive advantage. this is complemented by the fact that neuropsychologists agree we are instinctively competitive. they claim we contend with others by nature and that being instinctively competitive is one of our survival mechanisms. however, this instinct alone doesn't give us a unique and sustainable benefit in this modern era. he proposes that my mental toughness model exposes you to an approach that will give you; an upper hand on its own, it will combine with instinctive competitiveness and work in harmony with another competitive advantage that you already possess and enhance it even further.
assuming mental toughness is an area that will help you improve your performance; he is proposing a range of components that you could use to develop your mental toughness literacy, help you move in the direction of your dreams and (when necessary) punch above your weight. In many instances you will find that you know something or even a great deal about the components he is suggesting. however, despite this knowledge, you may not be doing enough with it. that is why he calls his book mental toughness – mastering your mind, because it’s not enough that you know it – you need to convince your mind that you must do it as well.
