An overview of the entire Peak Performance System. This overview is intended to show you how and where mental toughness fits within your “mental game”. The overview includes:
- The underlying principles of optimal performance.
- The concept of 2CPR; the ultimate goal of mental preparation (confidence, control, preparedness, and resolve).

Developing Mental Toughness lesson plan includes:
- Begins with a discussion of what mental toughness is and why it is important. This discussion includes the concept of “closing the capability gap” between where you are now in your preparation, and where you need to be as you pursue your most difficult challenges.
- Next, we’ll discuss the five components of performance. We’ll look physical toughness, emotional toughness, spiritual toughness, critical thinking, and your support team individually and learn how these components interact with one another to varying degrees depending on the nature of your goal or task.
- We’ll then do a deep-dive on mental toughness. You will learn how mental toughness serves as the integrative component and “fills the gap” of other components to help you achieve your most difficult goals and overcome life’s friction.
- Finally, we’ll look at mental toughness from a leader, coach, teacher, and parent perspective and discuss how you can increase the mental toughness of your “team”.
- The course includes one assessment tool designed to help you identify your natural tendencies within the six components of performance and one exercise to assist you in creating strategies to improve within each.
Key Benefits of this Course
Whether you are a student-athlete, parent, coach, teacher, leader, or aspiring professional, we all need to be confident, focused, mentally tough, and able to perform and get results under pressure. Do not settle for anything less. Peak performance begins in the mind, but most focus on the obvious and tangible components of actions and results and ignore the others. After all, actions and results are the easiest and quickest way to assess performance, but the untapped potential lies in managing our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. “Peak performers” not only focus on actions and results, but also on beliefs, thoughts, and emotions.
Do not allow your comfort zone to be the #1 killer of your peak performance, or lull you into a false sense of self-confidence, or cause you to believe you are acting responsibly when you are not. Find your comfort zone, get out of it immediately, and the sooner the better. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable and prepare to grow, learn, contribute, achieve fulfillment, and experience life to its fullest.
Performing at your peak requires a continuous application of my three Peak Performance principles. First continue to seek self-awareness as you learn, grow, adapt, and change over time. It is impossible to understand and serve others if you make no effort to understand and help yourself.
Second, don’t stop your pursuit of aligning your life’s purpose, values, priorities, faith, mind sets, mental toughness, and goals. Creating this alignment may seem impossible at times, but it is the effort that counts. If you commit to constant pursuit of this aligned state, you will likely experience its magic along your journey.
Finally, accept that your mental toughness degrades quickly and that you must act daily outside your comfort zone to keep your mental toughness honed and ready, so it is there when you need it. The longer you live in the shadow of past accomplishments, the more challenging it is to breakout of the drying concrete of your comfort zone. There is little time to relax.
If you are a parent, coach, teacher, or leader looking for a science-based system to instill confidence, focus, and mental toughness within those you care about, start with my system, and adjust to meet your needs. To be successful, you must address the problem with your children, students, or teammates. They must understand the challenge, the costs, and the solutions. My system provides you the ready to use framework and lexicon necessary to have a life-long impact on those you care about.
Mistakes, setbacks, challenges, failures, and disappointments will occur. All of these are signs of growth, and indicators that one is moving in the right direction. How you deal with them depends upon your mindsets and your level of mental toughness. When we approach life with a positive attitude, provide maximum effort in pursuit of a goal that is aligned with our values and life’s purpose, we can perform without fear or concern of what others think, or worry about how we look or the mistakes we make. It does not get much better than that.
