What’s more important than talent?

We are excited to bring you this edition of your Weekly Winning Resource all about the word stamina. The research would argue the reason that less than 9% of people who set goals achieve them is due to lack of mental and/or physical stamina. Having a strong mindset takes more than will power. It requires intentional hard work. Talents and skills are wonderful to have. However, you can have all the talents and skills in the world, but if you don’t have mental toughness, you most likely will not achieve the goals and dreams you desire. Your abilities will only get you so far, and then stamina will determine how much farther you will go. If you talk to a marathon runner, they will tell you that the race doesn’t start until around mile 20. This is because they have trained well for the first 20 miles. From mile 20 to mile 26.2, it’s all mental strength. Their body was done at mile 20. Like Joan Rivers says, “Success is a mental marathon!”
