"Mental toughness" is how sports psychologists describe the ability of athletes to bounce back from setbacks and to persist towards their goals. Head Start will help you, just like an elite athlete, build your own simple, achievable plan so you can reach your peak.

We all aspire to succeed in work and life, so what's stopping you from reaching your peak? According to Maslow, once our basic needs such as food and shelter are met, we want to fulfil our potential, to be the best possible version of ourselves. So what prevents us from achieving this? Some of us are beaten by the setbacks and challenges that life may scatter across our path. The fear of failure or lack of confidence can cause us to retreat into our comfort zone and avoid risk. In short, we simply give up and reconcile ourselves to disappointment. In work, this can lead to demotivation and disengagement. Whatever inhibits us from fulfilling our potential, there is now a remarkable groundswell of scientific research from the disparate fields of sports psychology, positive psychology and neuroscience.

Elite athletes, such as tennis player Johanna Konta, have increasingly been exposed to this science. This has helped them persist in pursuit of their goals with passion and determination, and has helped them bounce back from the inevitable setbacks that they encounter. Ultimately, it helps them succeed.

The great news is that this is applicable to you – the science can be applied to anybody. You don't have to be in search of sporting glory; if you simply want to achieve in work and in life, these tools will help you. Using the tools offered in this book will help you build your own mental toughness personal development programme and enable you to get ready and persist towards achieving your goals, whatever life throws at you.
