The mere thought of disruption can be paralyzing or it can be a secret weapon. It’s all in your mindset and what you choose to do with it.
Here’s one tip to leverage Mental Toughness to rock disruption so you can get aggressive today about planning how to rise above the rest tomorrow: Keep this in mind, and you’ll be on your way to using a tool you already have in a way that most people don’t know about.
Here’s how: Use fear to drive progress.
In order to foster creativity, productivity and courage it’s important to use this emotion to your benefit rather than to your detriment. Fear can be paralyzing or it can be a super power. It depends on your mindset, how you perceive it.
Here’s a great sequence for transitioning fear into a super power for you:
1.) Recognize a potential threat and its consequences.
2.) Release that fear by accepting it, and then thinking of it as an ally.
3.) Strategize by using your fear to raise your sense of urgency to think of the most impactful ways to be innovative today for your best performance tomorrow.
Think of it this way. If you were training for a race and wanted to become faster to qualify for an event, a potential threat could be an injury. You could choose to get conservative with your training to "stay healthy", or you could use this fear of injury to get aggressive about the latest techniques for flexibility and joint support. The fear of injury is very real, but it’s what you do with it that matters. Do you perceive it as potentially derailing all your hard work, or do you ask it to walk beside you to get even more dialed on preventative care?
Fear is a powerful emotion. It’s up to you what you do with it.

This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
