Toughness has far more influence on our success and fulfillment than most of us imagine. True toughness is defined by character—who are you and are you secure in your identity? Capability—what are you able to do? Capacity—what are you able to withstand? And commitment—what are you willing to do?
Tough is an inspiring look deep into what makes us tough and why it matters, and a complete practical guide to developing and mastering the mental, physical, and emotional tools needed to change your life.
