Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) October 20, 2009 -- Prominent individuals in the fields of entertainment, politics, business, religion, and news are contributing their stories of how mental toughness sustained them in challenging times and motivated them to achieve their goals. These stories will be revealed in a new book entitled Use Your Mentoh: Perspectives on Mental Toughness, published by the Mentoh Foundation and due to be released in the Spring of 2010.
An exploration of mental toughness is especially relevant in the current recessionary times. The discourse, however, is no longer just associated with athletes, but is now pertinent to the lives of everyday Americans. As the stress, pressures, and challenges build, the capacity for an individual to cope and perform to the best of their ability in spite of the circumstances in which they currently find themselves becomes increasingly more urgent. In the midst of the recession, individuals must maintain a state of mind that allows them to overcome fear and defeat and utilize their creativity and intellect to build again.
The identities of those featured in Use Your Mentoh are being kept closely guarded by the foundation. A contest accompanies the release of the book. Those interested are invited to participate in the contest by logging onto [http://www.MentohFoundation.org]. The contest winner will be awarded an advance copy of Use Your Mentoh.
The Mentoh Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Los Angeles, California. It was founded to build partnerships with community, regional, national, and international programs and organizations to provide critical financial resources to combat global poverty, and strengthen health care and educational opportunities for all.
