Mental toughness in a man is easy to spot.

You can see the determination in his glare. You can feel it in his presence.

The determined man’s confidence and fury are unmistakable. It is reflected in his appearance and is even more apparent in his actions.

The scowl on the face of a mentally tough man is displeasure.

Not with you.

The scowl shows his displeasure with his current station in life.

He is not satisfied with mediocrity.

He does not settle for “good enough”.

He is unwilling to adjust his goals due to resistance or obstacles.

He will not bend when the storm hits.

You know just by looking at him that he will run through you if he needs to.

Underestimate this man at your own peril.

He is typically kind and gentle….until he’s not.

He is the prototypical badass with a big heart.

He makes a great friend and even better teammate so be on the lookout for these men and make them an ally.

Mental Toughness Tip: Develop and refine your own mental toughness scowl. Just remembering to maintain a steady and determined gaze will help you feel mentally tough and feeling mentally tough is the first step to true mental toughness.
