Opinion: Talking Toughness


A look at OCR and the term “toughness”, and how they are related.

In the end, you can’t prove how tough you are by doing snow burpees, or running a Spartan Race shirtless in 35 degrees, and especially not by showing up to World’s Toughest Mudder without a wetsuit and expecting to finish all 24 hours. While defining this attribute may prove relatively impossible I do feel that many of the people I consider the “toughest” around share a mindset that can be summed up in this one sentence: The individuals who can best persevere are those who can remember their goal(s) and quickly forget the past all while staying focused on their current task at hand.
