How to Become Mentally Strong

A successful athlete needs mental strength; the ability to overcome failure, navigate obstacles and perform well when faced with setbacks and injuries. The degree of mental toughness one has measures individual resilience and can predict success in sport. According to Solomon and Becker (2004), a resilient athlete can overcome setbacks, remain confident, and focus on the present. Meanwhile, athletes who lack mental strength are more likely to give up.

Although many athletes view mental resilience as an innate trait that one is born with, research has shown that mental toughness can be fostered, trained, and developed. Just like training a muscle, it is a habit that needs continuous training, focus, and effort. 

One way to improve mental strength is through Neuro Training.  

Numerous peer-reviewed studies have shown that brain endurance training improves athletic performance by targeting the areas of the brain responsible for fatigue management, decision making, and impulse suppression. In 2015, Staiano et al. conducted research demonstrating that brain endurance training improves endurance performance when combined with traditional physical training, thereby increasing athletes’ mental fitness and resilience.  

Rewire’s cognitive training protocols incorporate neuro training protocols to make mental strength training more accessible to those seeking to improve their mental resilience.

Serving as an investor and strategic advisor, NBA All-Star Kyle Korver says, “As a professional athlete, I’ve known firsthand the importance of training the mind and body to push the limits of performance. Rewire’s the latest platform makes mental strength training more accessible to athletes everywhere with easy-to-use tools to help them reach their goals.”
