In another post, I wrote about resolve which is my own favourite mental toughness word, coupled with the adjective ‘resolute’. In this post, I have listed the 10 most popular mental toughness words as voted by the people whom I coach to build a mentally stronger mindset.
To set our goal I ask my clients to frame their most desirable mental toughness mindset by choosing three mental toughness adjectives from a list of over 130 mental toughness words.
Below are the top 10 favourites and interestingly ‘confidence’ is the runaway winner and the characteristic that people covet most. Every client cited a desire to be confident as one of their top three mental toughness characteristics. Confidence is an important aspect of mental toughness both at a self-esteem as well as a day to day positivity level.
Clients also expressed a desire to be mentally stronger through words such as ‘resilient’ and ‘strong’, which were second and third highest respectively.
