The Mental Toughness Handbook by Damon Zahariades


The Mental Toughness Handbook

25th January 2022.

This is an invaluable book about improving your mental toughness so you’re better equipped to deal with life’s setbacks and misfortunes and respond in a positive way. It achieves this by going through the psychological issues and mind sets that often derail us, or lead to anxiety, feelings of failure and defeat. There are exercises to help you determine where you are. They also show you how to respond positively.

The book is practical, written in an easy to understand style and makes a lot of sense. There were approaches and attitudes I can remember having and using in the past. But like a muscle that’s not used, mental toughness can decline unless you regularly use it. While much of it is common sense, the author does get beneath the bonnet to explain some of the negative impacts that are not always obvious. I lost count of how many times I found myself nodding at some of the patterns I’d fallen into.

Whether you struggle with setbacks, failure and dealing with the curve balls life can throw your way, there’s plenty in this book for everyone. Take what you need, understand the principles and follow the advice. Most of it is simple and straightforward. Best of all, you become more positive the moment you start reading.



Do you feel overwhelmed by your circumstances? Are you exhausted and overburdened with stress? Are you tempted to give up whenever you encounter obstacles and mishaps?


Imagine boldly facing any challenge that comes your way. Imagine confronting any problem you run into and resolving it with confidence.

Imagine being 100% certain that you can handle any predicament or setback life throws at you.
