Research indicates one’s mental edge is honed by strongly focusing on and supporting the following concepts:
Own effort will make a difference
High achievers, great athletes, and survivors of disaster developed coping skills at early ages. Experiences such as camping, scouts, athletic and cultural achievements help train the young mind to achieve excellence. Although the skills of success are best learned while young, they may be achieved at any age.
Success is gained by personal effort. Steven Hawking, who has ALS and should have died years ago, is still challenging the greatest mind in the world. Rick Hanson is a Canadian that took his wheelchair around the world and became a leader on the International Olympics Committee. Others have not only used their efforts to become great, but have also inspired those around them to greatness.
