Default Get Ben Roethlisberger's Mental Toughness

(Well I guess this is a good sign. Men's Fitness ran this little article using Ben as a role model so maybe the furor from all his offseason escapades of last year is dying down a bit. - mesa)

Six strategies to improve your own mental fitness

For the Pittsburgh Steelers' leader Ben Roethlisberger, toughness isn't about bulldozing over defenders. "[It's about] playing the worst game of your life but not backing down," says Roethlisberger. Improve your own mental fitness in the gym, on the field, or in the boardroom with these six strategies from Orlando-based sports psychology expert Patrick Cohn, Ph.D.

Momentum shifts, such as interceptions, can be game-changers. When yours come, whether on the job or in your relationship, stay positive. Patience shows confidence: If the ball isn't bouncing your way, you know it will eventually.

Mistakes are inevitable, so don't dwell on them. Once you're able to accept this, you'll be able to refocus on your next move.

Don't let boredom set in. Maintain the same focus and intensity in your training that you'd have in competition. That'll be easier if you're switching things up.

If you're trying to muster the energy to overcome a setback or finish a major project, try to block out any pain or fatigue. Don't allow mental exhaustion to throw off your mission.

Teams ahead on the scoreboard tend to get complacent. If things are going your way, continue to be aggressive and to stick to your game plan. Think about extending—not protecting—your lead.

Success is not about being perfect right away. If you under perform in relation to your expectations, your confidence will be hit. Instead, focus on past accomplishments, which can't be erased. That forms the base of building back confidence.
