I hope you are in good health. The last couple of my blogs were of a book review on how to win friends and influence people. In this blog, I'm going to discuss the review of the book 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class: The Thought Processes, Habits, and Philosophies of the Great Ones. Well, I cannot discuss every one of them briefly in one blog, but I'm going to divide them in a couple of blogs and discuss with you briefly. Steve Siebold, who is the author of this book, is one of the greatest mental toughness coaches in the world. For years the author has met world-class business-mans, athletes, and people from different careers and he has discovered this mental toughness secret which has also helped me a lot in my career.
Secret number 1-9:
Well, it is difficult to discuss all the secrets in one blog, but I'm going to make sure that I describe them briefly to you.
Secret 1: The world-class operate from objective reality
All of us, are sometimes living in the illusion that we are the most hardworking people on the face of the earth. That we are doing all we can to achieve what we want, but still somehow that thing or goal escape us. That is the same illusion due to which we start to think that we cannot achieve something or the goal is never going to be achieved by us.
Well, that is not the reality. Reality is that we are not honest with our own selves, we are deceiving ourselves that we are doing everything and still not getting what we want. The world-class, which is even above the uppers class is completely honest with themselves. They are honest with themselves whenever they ask themselves what they have done for their goal daily, they don't try to deceive themselves that they are working hard enough.
Secret 2: World-class wealth begins with world-class thinking

Each class has its own level of thinking, that leads to these classes. Middle-class thinking leads to the middle class, upper-class thinking leads to upper class and world-class thinking lead to world-class thinking. If you want to be wealthier as world class, then start thinking as the world class. Instead of consuming, start producing the product. Instead of avoiding risk start taking them.
Secret 3: Champions have an immense capacity for sustained concentration
World class people are the most concentrated people alive on this earth. Unlike middle class or poverty class who jump from goal to another and another to another. Whenever they met with a failure they just change their goal, instead of changing their methods, believing if this doesn't work something else would work and so on. While world-class, who are known as champion concentrate their forces on one single goal, no matter how many failures they met with, they still stay on their goal and stay on it until they achieve it.
Secret 4: Champions are driven by emotional motivators
The middle class and upper class, whenever they feel like giving up they choose someone to motivate them on the path of success, it also works but not for long. The reason is that they don't have a strong enough of doing what they are doing. Champions have clarity of their goals and whenever they met a failure, no matter how many failures they face, they don't give up because they have answered a question, that is, why they want to do what they do? If anyone can answer this question and have strong enough reason of doing that, whenever they are feeling tired their emotion starts to motivate them to push more into their goals.
Secret 5: The great ones separate truth from facts
The great one is the master of the separating truth from facts. While according to the author Truth is the perception of a person, that what reality is. While the facts are the truth, which no one believes. The great one always separate truth from facts.
Secret 6: Champions lead through facilitated introspection
Champions know that the most effective form of learning is the self-discovery. Champions make people rediscover themselves by asking them in a way, that how they feel about something. Champion are master in helping people in their self-discovery.
Secret 7: The great ones know they are unaware
Great ones know that only way to grow mentally, emotionally and financially is to learn through various things. That way no matter how much knowledgeable great ones are they consider themselves unaware of anything. More they learn more they become unaware of things.
Secret 8: Champion develop world-class belief before they become champions
Champions know the only way you become like someone, is to become like one. They develop the belief that motivates them in every step of life. They walk like a king when they are not even a king.
Secret 9: Champion embrace reality
Champion know that no matter what project or no matter how much they are earning is big enough compared to something, and even smaller compared to something. If you consider that one million is huge money, compared to ten thousand it is, but compared to 100 million it is nothing,
