Becoming Tough provides exercises that facilitate concentration and physical fitness.

How does one become tough? The answer proposed in Becoming Tough is, “Whatever kind of toughness you seek, it is achieved in the same way as any skill, through practice and study, that is, through training.”

To that end, Becoming Tough presents exercises whose outstanding feature is their use of simple repetitive movements to facilitate concentration. Because a long-lasting physical activity is easier to sustain than a long-lasting mental task, the poorer one’s ability to concentrate, the more important this assistance becomes. Physical fitness is a significant by-product, not only because it improves physical health but also because it encourages social confidence and self-esteem. Another exceptional feature is a toughening program that addresses the user’s long-term aspirations for change as well as immediate concerns without interfering with personal beliefs that the user does not wish to change.

The value of the proposed methods for increasing toughness lies in their
 simplicity
 use of repetitive movements to assist concentration
 adaptability to the user’s immediate and long-term concerns
Excerpt
A self-image is of course a very personal concept. This means that any guidelines on changing that concept can be no more than suggestions to be accepted, rejected, or modified according to each individual’s unique ideas of who they are and how they wish to change. My own guidelines consist of seven elements: the long-term development of an integrated self-image that is simple, mindful, humanistic, and possesses a great deal of behavioral freedom while maintaining a strong measure of emotional control.
