Everyone does it tough at some point in their journey. So what can we learn from those who deal with stress or pressure on a regular basis? Hosted by Paddy Steinfort, a performance coach to some of the world’s best who Sports Illustrated has called “Master Mind”, this show takes world-class performers from a range of arenas (from athletes to academics, entrepreneurs to entertainers, medicine to military) back through their journey to find their hard earned answers to a simple question: what does toughness look like in action? Initially recorded exclusively for the US Army & veterans only, the intent behind these talks was to help soldiers and families deal with stressful situations so they dont just survive but thrive. But given the challenges everyone in the broader community faces these days, the full tapes of these exclusive interviews will now be released to the public via the Toughness podcast - so we can all benefit from the toughness of those at the top.

Ahead of the upcoming second season of Toughness, behold the second in our series of hot topic special episodes! In today's specially curated compilation, you'll hear how bad-ass performers in cut-throat environments - from Navy Seals to NASA, from Firefighters to First Basemen, even Cirque du Soleil acrobats and Olympic sprinters - flex their mental muscles in unique ways in order to withstand the fire. Listen to tales from the front lines as those who face the flames on a daily basis talk through how they adapt, adjust and overcome unexpected obstacles and unforeseen setbacks. Some of our guests also speak to coaches and the psychology behind training that flexible, "bend, don't break" mindset which is so crucial on stages when its make or break, where lives are saved or lost - including vital tips that could help you adapt while facing your own adversity.
