WHAT DOES IT ACTUALLY MEAN TO BE TOUGH

Toughness is experiencing something that is subjectively distressing, leaning in, paying attention, and creating space to take a thoughtful action that aligns with your core values.

This means that the practice of toughness requires a few things, all of which are interrelated:

  • Knowing what you value.
  • Being with discomfort instead of immediately reacting. 
  • Taking into account what is happening around you, but not being unduly influenced by external pressures.
  • Paying attention to the path of least resistance and asking yourself, “Is this what I really want?” before going down it.
  • Not asking for help when you don’t need it but asking for it when you do
