How mentally tough are you? 

As shown in the above quotes, being a great competitor is just as much mental as it is physical. Being mentally tough can help you move past any failures or adversities quickly and remain focused. 

For example, a large part of being mentally tough is letting go of things that you can’t control. Worrying over the past leads to wasted time, which takes away from the progress you could be making towards your goals. Mentally tough people don’t let the past weigh them down.
