“I think another quite appropriate definition for mental toughness is ‘performing your best when it’s needed most.’”

“A person develops their self-image by how they talk about themselves to themselves & to other people.”

“It’s kind of like the physical workout, don’t worry about having a perfect physical workout. Just get in the gym & get something positive done. You’ll improve the workouts over time.”

“A person’s not going to out-perform nor under-perform their self-image for long so the goal here is: you want to set your self-image high. Set it where you want your life to be, not what reality has told you your life is.”

“The identity statement is really a foundation that starts us & gets us in the habit of talking about ourselves in a positive way.”

“Self-confidence is the #1 variable for all human performance.”

A licensed mental health professional, Dr. Selk earned his Doctorate in counseling and sport psychology at the University of Missouri. His client list includes companies such as Morgan Stanley, Ernst & Young, Merrill Lynch, Edward Jones, Bacardi, and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. A regular contributor to Forbes and Inc., he has been featured in such publications as Success, Men’s Health, Shape, Self, and USA Today, and on television and radio shows on CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, and ESPN. His latest book Relentless Solution Focus has hit the best-seller list multiple times. Selk’s earlier book, Executive Toughness, was ranked one of the best career development books ever published by Book Authority. His first book, 10-Minute Toughness, is on pace to be one of the best-selling sports psychology books of all time, while Organize Tomorrow Today was ranked as a top best-selling business book of 2016 by CEO Read. And in 2018, his book Lead Any Team to Win was recognized by Bloomberg as one of the top ten best leadership books of the year.
