  1. COMMIT 
    From this day forward, commit to what you have been putting off until now and do it.
  2. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
    You will never out-perform your self-image, and self image is all about belief in yourself.
  3. ZEN LIKE FOCUS
    Get into the zone and focus on one thing at a time.
  4. AWARENESS
    Stop and pay attention to what distracts you mentally.  Is it emails, computer, phone, etc?  Turn off the outside noise.
  5. CLEAR UP YOUR ENVIRONMENT
    It is hard to develop mental toughness if your office or house is a mess.  Clean up and clear out.
  6. TIE UP YOUR MESSES
    Make a list of all the unfinished projects or unfinished promises, then delete or prioritise your list of actions.  Do it one step at a time.
  7. COME TO THE EDGE
    It takes courage to leave your comfort zone and live on the edge.  Yet that is the only place you are truly alive.
  8. DO SOMETHING THAT SCARES YOU
    What if every day for the next 30 days you did something every day that scares you?
  9. REPETITION IS THE KEY
    Repetition of great habits every day is the key to outstanding success.
  10. IT TAKES TIME
    Know that sometimes you will feel bored and fed up and won’t feel like doing whatever you have set in front of you.  As Mother Theresa once said “Do it Anyway”.
  11. WORLD CLASS FITNESS
    The more physically fit you are, the more mentally fit you will be.  Make a decision today to exercise a minimum of 20 minutes per day, every day.
