How Quickly Would You Bounce Back After Everything You Owned Burned Down?
How Quickly Would You Bounce Back After Everything You Owned Burned Down?
A year? A month? A week?
The very next day…as if it was little more than stubbing your toe?
While I was shocked when this occurred to me in August 2020 in one of the California wildfires…I was even more shocked by how easily I took the challenge in stride.
Not just dealing with it, but instantly seeing how it would make me and my family stronger.
In fact, it was the antifragility developed that in part led to this course being developed!
Antifragility – the Power to Get BETTER from Setbacks and Stressors
Mental toughness is good. But being antifragile is even better.
This is the ability to not just tough it out, but expand your ability to handle bigger and worse challenges all the easier. To use them to grow better.
Just imagine if ALL your daily stressors were handled easily.
Or that you had twice or three times the stress…but this served only to move you towards happiness and your goals all the faster.
Yes, it is possible.
Mental Toughness Behind Feats of Strength and Endurance
I am a well-known strongman having done a wide variety of feats of strength and endurance.
Mental toughness was a key skill used in accomplishing the following:
Pulling an 8,800 lb. fire truck by my hair.
The mental toughness to say yes to flying out to an event halfway across the country to do something way beyond what I’d ever done before.
The mental toughness to rally all my forces after initially failing at the task, to ultimately succeed.
Supporting over half a ton on top of wrestler’s bridge.
This is a dangerous feat of strength in that one slip could lead to permanent and devastating damage.
Months and months of training all leading up to doing it, and after several failed attempts.
Snatching a 24kg/53lb. kettlebell 301 times in ten minutes.
When 200 reps are considered great, to do 300 is insane. And yet I set this goal, trained at it for months, weathered many setbacks and eventually accomplished it. Basically, it entails going full speed non-step for the entire ten-minute duration.
I would also go on to snatch "the Beast," a 48kg/106lb. kettlebell 91 times in ten minutes.
Winning a Strongman Competition.
…especially after bombing on the first event! This was a comeback that took everything I had both physically and mentally.
These are just a few highlights of how mental toughness has played out in my training, not just in the moment, but the months and years of training leading up to them.
Accurate Thinking Behind Mental Toughness...
To Make It Cover All of Life, including the Toughest Setbacks
This subject is far from about just working out. While mental toughness plays an important role here, it plays an even more important role elsewhere in life.
In addition, to be a strongman, I’m trained in a wide variety of modalities. One of those is being a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Trainer, which included running an NLP Training business for a few years.
What I’ve found is that this is one of the best ways of thinking and feeling about the subject of mental toughness and antifragility.
And this means giving you the tools and strategies to do just the same.
I’m not a one-trick pony...and I don’t want you to be either.
While mental toughness is great for fitness, it has a wide range of other applications.
All of these and more are discussed in this course, 10 Keys to Mental Toughness and Antifragility.

Warning! This is NOT a Workout Program, it’s About Mindset
Of course, I touch on what are the best options for building mental toughness by working out. But this course does not go into specific details about technique for exercises or give you a training plan.
If that is what you’re looking for you can check out my many other courses, books and videos available.
Instead, this course is to give you the higher level capabilities to better apply to any form of physical training and beyond.
Early Praise for 10 Keys...
I thought the "10 Keys of Mental Toughness & Antifragility" is a well informed course on the subject. It caused me to reflect on my own experiences as I read through and led me to Reflectively journal on them leading to a greater understanding of the quote, "A well defined problem is half solved", because it defines Mental Toughness and Antifragility in a way that is applicable to life's challenges.
In the light of this, I have started to restructure my habits and routines around training and life, remembering the Martial Maim "Make your weaknesses strengths and your strengths become super strengths".
The idea that Mental Toughness is the be all and end in life is put to rest and the model of Antifragility is better, especially as .both are part of a Meta Skill set, which in turn are a subset of a greater Metaset - Mental training opens up many more options to consider, - therefore more choices - therefore greater freedom.
I appreciated the section in the manual on reflection on evil, as it reminded me of when I thought things were bad I used to think how I would survive somewhere like Auschwitz as an intern and sometimes as a guard. and I would try to see (but never fully understand) how such places ever exist.
On a more upbeat note the "10 Keys to Mental Toughness & Antifragility" is, I feel, a very good resource to use in Training (living life) for a long time to come , and I am very happy to have acquired it.

“The 10 Keys to Mental Toughness course is solid information that at a few different occasions had me pausing to think. I never considered the idea of the potential of mental toughness potentially being a negative but when I thought about it I actually practiced that philosophy where it literally almost killed me...A recent better example is that I recently had a wisdom tooth pulled, which I had conditioned myself to believe was going to be a smooth event prior to the appointment. I did not require a single dose of pain medication post surgery and only had basic numbing shots to pull it. I attribute that to having a good dentist and the proper mindset." - Phil
