Mental toughness comes from motivation and drive. In my job, I’ve learned that you can far exceed what your presumed ability level is by surrounding yourself with like minded indivudals. Mental toughness is influenced as much by outside factors as internal factors. Group dynamics and having a purpose go a long way in producing a mentally tough individual. If you don’t have the confidence you can complete the task at hand due to past training you won’t be mentally tough, so training is a big part as well.
