I don't see how a book is going to give you mental toughness. It's all about you and how bad you want something. Plain and simple.
Excellent advice. One other thing, is prepare your mind to overcome the idea that you may think something will end when you reach X. These programs are designed to see how you handle mental strain and just when you think you've finished a cycle, they'll tell you to keep moving you're not done. For many people, that one thing can cause them to throw in the towel and quit. Even tho the exercise is actually done.
"If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions."
