Turn On Warrior Switch
Mental Toughness • 2m 3s
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts." ~ Winston Churchill
This week Ara helps us walk through what to do if our warrior switch gets turned off. This can happen to any one of us. We need to learn to take small steps to turn it back it on. Find the small wins, take it one step at a time until you get that warrior switch turned back on and you are back in the race.
We are going to hit the highs of our journeys and we are going to hit the lows. Go back to your why...and find a way to win. The key is the courage to continue. Value is demonstrated by sacrifice. Don't stop short MTNTOUGH'ers!

Ara is a retired military officer and Army Ranger. He's led some of the toughest and best soldiers in the world, trained Rangers and paratroopers, and taught physical education at the United States Military Academy. He believes in pushing the limits of physical, mental, and emotional endurance to find the strength to turn walls into hurdles: "Every time you find a ceiling…it becomes your next floor – so break through it, stand up, and get ready to drive further."
