New York, NY, April 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Mental Toughness Telesummit, a free online event to be held April 25-30, brings together bestselling authors, sports and performance psychologists, world-class athletes and entrepreneur coaches to show how people can develop mental toughness. People from all walks of life will learn how to develop the attitude and habits that lead to a more satisfying, successful life. Participants can register at http://www.mentaltoughnesstelesummit.com.
The five-day telesummit will be hosted by peak performance coach Renita Kalhorn, a Juilliard-trained pianist and martial arts black belt. Spurred by her belief that everyone – from high-profile CEOs and professional performers to budding entrepreneurs and first-graders – needs mental toughness, she was inspired to bring together the visionaries and role models she most admires as cutting-edge thinkers on motivation and other aspects of this crucial life skill.
Headline speakers include Daniel Pink, New York Times best-selling author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us as well as Simon Sinek (Start With Why) and Daniel Coyle (The Talent Code). The Summit roster also includes Pamela Slim (Escape From Cubicle Nation), Ilaria Montagnani, martial arts fitness expert; Matt Scott, two-time Paralympian and star of the Nike ad “No Excuses,” and Dr. Doug Hirschhorn, investment psychology advisor.
The unique summit will give live, free access to speakers sharing practical, actionable information on how to develop the trait known as grit -- the ability to sustain perseverance and passion despite failure, adversity and plateaus.
“In this increasingly fast-moving, competitive and turbulent world, the potential for stress is higher than ever. At the same time, our instant-gratification culture breeds low tolerance for discomfort,” says Kalhorn. “The cost of anxiety disorders in the US is estimated at upwards of $42 billion – and yet, there are few, if any, courses on mental resilience being taught at schools or offered in the workplace. We’re simply not equipped for the realities of modern life.”
Summit topics will cover the mindset and habits of mental toughness, including motivation, visualization, solutions-based focus, self-talk, risk-taking, growth mindset and poise under pressure.
