Mental Toughness: How to Embrace Stress for Greater Success

Featured Guest: Colonel Deb Lewis

Women (and men) face unhealthy stress and anxiety on a daily basis – it’s a wonder we’re still standing. Too few of us have stress tools powerful enough to put stress to work for us so we can enjoy the journey. Once you’ve learned how to be mentally tough, you will use stress to your advantage. It becomes your superpower!

Colonel Deb Lewis learned the importance of mental toughness as part of the very first class of women to graduate from West Point.  The lessons learned there, and in her subsequent Army career, inspired her to develop her unique Mentally Tough Women program to teach people how to handle stress, not simply de-stress.  She joins the show to share her experiences, and how you can learn to effectively use stress to your advantage, too.
