#75HARD Book Review + Insights – Mental Toughness or Mental Discipline?

As many of you probably know, I am doing the 75 Hard Challenge – and it’s a challenge all right.

In the video below, I do a book a review of the 75 Hard Challenge Book. So, if you want to listen, hit the play button. If you prefer to read, scroll down to see my shownotes and transcript.

Spoiler Alert: I did complete this challenge (2 more times too and will do it again. If you don’t have time for #75Hard – check out my online course Optimize Your Workweek. It will show you how to take control of your time!

What is 75 Hard?

For those who know about the 75 Hard Challenge, it’s a book about mental toughness – and if you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ll know how I absolutely do NOT like the term ‘mental toughness’ because I believe it’s about being angry with yourself. I know some people might think it’s semantics, but I think it’s more deeper than that. So, I like to see this book as a way to get mental discipline.

75 Hard is a 75-day challenge where first, you need to do two 45-minute workouts daily, and one of those workouts needs to be outdoors. The second thing you have to do is to take a progress picture of yourself – which you may think is really easy, but apparently that’s how people mess up. Because when you forget to do a step in the 75-days daily challenge, you have to start over to Day 1 again.

Another task in the challenge is to drink four liters of water daily. Plus, you also have to follow a diet of your choosing. Lastly, you have to read 10 pages of a self-development book per day.  Just like the progress photo, if you do a cheat meal, skipped your pages, or only drank three liters of water – you have to go back to day one.

75 Hard: Mental Toughness vs Mental Discipline

Again, I don’t like the concept of mental toughness because I think it’s rooted to anger. It’s a lack of forgiveness towards the self. And my whole being is about how do we be at peace with ourselves – where we are now. It’s not a competition, but a journey. 

And so, I like to call it mental discipline. Doing the 75-hard is for my mental discipline. 

I accept that I am human and that I have fault – and so I can give myself the grace not to be too hard on myself. Mental discipline means to have discipline in our actions, thoughts, and emotions. It’s the reason why I started 75-hard.

75 hard is getting into the habit of doing the things you don’t want to do when you need to do it – even when you don’t want to do it.

Mental Discipline is Tied to Our Happiness

Our level of happiness is tied in direct proportion to how discipline we currently are or how much discipline we are currently exercising. You see, when we feel like we have control, we feel empowered and fulfilled. There is a level of satisfaction from doing something that you didn’t want to do, but you still went ahead and did it because you know you needed to.

Happiness is the feeling of fulfillment. And it’s very fulfilling to know that you can count on yourself, right?

75 Hard Challenge Book Review and Tips video transcript (unedited)

Allison Graham  00:00

Welcome to the Resilience reset. We are going to talk about 75 Hard. Now I do not have my microphone, I do not have my light. So I’m sorry about the darkness here. Maybe if I do it this way, my turn a little, might help a bit. But you know what? I’m here. That’s okay. We are going to talk about this. And it’s a tactical guide to winning the war with yourself. Now, I, you people who know me, you’re gonna be like, Allison, this is a book about mental toughness. And don’t you always say how annoyed you are by the fact that people use the term mental toughness, because I have, like, I believe in mental discipline. Because I feel like mental toughness is about being angry with yourself. And I know some people might think it’s semantics. But I actually, I think it’s more deeper than that. Because toughness is about like, harsh. And I’m, like, angry when I screw up. And I’m, if I’m not absolutely by the book, then like, there’s just no grace. There’s no grace in yourself for mental toughness. And so I know I’ve talked about that before on the show. But I really, really think it’s important. And yet, here’s the book. And not only a book, a challenge that I am doing, I am in middle of 75 hard I am on day, let’s check the app. Because I don’t even know, let’s see, I’m on day 28 of the app. So let me explain to you what 75 heart is first, and then we’ll dive into the book. So 75 hard, you have to do certain things every day. And this is the checklist that you can see on the screen. So there you have to do 245 minute workouts, and one of them needs to be outside. Okay, so that is an hour and a half of your day, plus travel time and getting ready time and whatnot that needs to be incorporated into your life. The second thing you have to do is take a progress picture of yourself. And you think that that’s really easy. But apparently that’s how people mess up. The challenge is they forget to do their photo, or they forget to read 10 pages of a self development book per day, which for me, that’s really easy. The next thing you need to do is you need to drink four liters of water every day. Yeah. Now, that’s not actually a problem. For me, I’m a massive hydrator. But it it definitely on the days when you like aren’t feeling thirsty or whatever, you definitely have to work at it. The next thing you need to do is follow a diet. Now, the diet can be of your choosing. I chose no dairy, no processed sugars. And that’s about it. So everything else is just basically clean eating because like what else is left? If there’s no Joe and so follow a diet, no junk food and no alcohol. So those are the rules of the game. But then whatever diet you choose, and I chose, as I said, No Darien known No. Whatever processed sugars, so that is surprisingly 95% of the time, not as hard as you think it is. And that 5% is why it is called 75 hard. And I know that to be true because I generally I’m like, Oh, I don’t want any dairy. I’m good. Like now I’m off and I don’t even want sugar like I was at farm boy last night and I you know saw lots of different things. And I’m like, now I don’t feel like it. But today when I finished my third keynote of the week, normally after a keynote and when I’m traveling, which I’m staying in London right now, I would be like a glass of red wine. Right? Go out with a friend maybe or by myself, whatever. And probably something really heavy and cheesy. I eat joke all nachos would be great. Or have a cheeseburger or something like you know, but then again, this is why, you know, I’ve had some times in my life where I’ve carried a little extra weight, let’s be honest. And so, you know, having to step out of that habit, because the truth is My body doesn’t need nachos. My mind wants nachos. And my body is following suit and craving the nachos. Right. And so one of the things I’ve learned through this challenge is it’s okay to want something and not actually eat it. Right or do it. So I went to a movie the other night went see James Bond. I really wanted movie theater popcorn went in. I had some what did I take with me? I think I took carrots. And about like three quarters of the way to the movie. I’m like, Oh, I forgot my carrots. Maybe it didn’t matter anyway, so I ate them. And I didn’t eat any popcorn and it was totally fine. You know, no big deal. Right, but if some people wouldn’t even know what I’m talking about, but for other people who find comfort in food, you know that this could be really difficult and quite challenging. So, anyway, so that’s 75 heart. You do it for 75 days straight. Here’s the clincher. If you screw up, you got to start back over a day one. So when he says no cheat meals, it’s 000 tolerance. So that goes, because my end date is December 8, so I am not going to screw this up. All right. Hey, Greg, you’re on the road today. Awesome. Good to have you listening. And I’m on the road to well, not literally, physically, I’m on a couch. All right, so let’s dive into this book. And so here is the first reason why I don’t love the concept of mental toughness, chapter two, kill, kill, kill, like, goes backwards, kill, kill, kill the who wants to live their life like this just angry and man. And like, and I understand that that is why some people are so incredibly uber successful is because they Killer Instinct. And my whole being is about how do we be at peace with our like, push ourselves, but be at peace with where we are now. And it’s like our journey, not a competition with all of the other people. And so how do we rise together not like against, and the philosophy of this, right? Like the, the intensity with which this book is positioned, and mental toughness is positioned. And by the way, this guy has a multi multi multi million dollar company, like, I don’t know, if they’re a billion or million millions, I think, well, I probably eight or nine figures business, right. And he’s very successful. He’s also got an edge to, like a very, and I don’t think it’s like masculine versus feminine. I think it’s intensity and the, what inspires you and what carries you forward. And for some people, when they talk about mental toughness, it’s a, it’s an anger, and it’s a it’s a lack of forgiveness towards self. And it’s just got an edge, and it doesn’t work for me. And so I call it mental discipline, which to me is like, okay, so I accept that I’m human, I accept that I have faults, I accept that some days, I’m not going to be perfect. Any day, let’s be honest, because perfect doesn’t exist. And so I can give myself the grace, like my thinking with mental discipline is, we don’t let ourselves off the hook, we don’t accept our own bullshit, we, you know, play, you know, really a solid game in terms of this is negative, this is positive, I’m not going to accept that I’m going to focus on this, we can turn off our brain when it starts getting into the spike, you know, the spiral of, you know, all like, you know, negativity or whatever. Like, to me, that’s mental discipline, as opposed to toughness, which is like, this is the past. That’s how the path I’m on this is what I want to accomplish, and this is who I am, and this is what I’m only going to do. And if I falter, then I’m an asshole, you know, which is sort of what this guy is saying. But forgot, forget that the thing is, the vegetables that he’s teaching are like I absolutely, for most of them, absolutely believe in. And yet, the way he’s positioned it, the energy is wrong for me, maybe not for other people, I still think it’s a really great book to do. And doing the challenge. By the way, the reason I did the challenge is not because I want to lose weight, I don’t think I’d actually make it through if that would have been the inspiration. What I wanted to do is I wanted to know that I had the mental discipline or have the mental discipline to not be controlled by things that I crave, not just food, I mean, like, you know, sitting on a couch and watching Netflix, instead of going for a second workout. I wanted to feel a command over my body at a higher level, if that makes sense. To be disciplined in my actions, disciplined in my thoughts, and disciplined in my emotions. So this is it. It’s all about me up in my game. And, you know, also because I recognize like in order for me to be able to do three keynotes in a week, and show up and be totally present and run the company and do all my marketing and the lifts up and all of that. I have to be at the top of my game physically. They already have enough problems in my physical sphere with my health that I’m behind the eight ball to begin with between my pain and sarcoids And so I have to, I have to push harder in order to be able to serve at a level that I need to serve. And that’s why I’ve chosen to do this. So if you’re wondering, why am I doing a mental toughness challenge when I’m a whole, like, all about giving yourself a grace, and you know, not pushing yourself when? Well, I do believe you should push yourself, I just don’t think you should push yourself because you think you’re a jerk if you can’t do something, anyway. Okay, so let’s go into some of this content. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. And that’s about resilience. Right? Like, okay, so this punch came at me, but I’m gonna keep going, or I’m gonna But see, my thing is, is that just about keep going, like plowing through, it’s like, okay, that punch came at me. Let me look at that punch. Anything I could do to avoid that punch later. So it doesn’t happen again. Okay, I could do that. Is there anything I did instigate said punch, maybe I could shift that, you know, that compassionate curiosity that I talked about. And, you know, like, and then process it, oh, my God, that punch really hurt me. Let me feel the feels. So that I’m not taking the fields with me as I move forward. Right, like so often, I think that’s what we do. So anyhow, to the point here in the book. That’s why this is called Book Review. Plus insights, Holly G. Are the real world deals in facts, not feelings. And what matters is action, execution and results. The reality is history forgets whiners, but remembers winners. I agree with that. I mean, I don’t have a lot of patience for people who whine about shit. Like, let’s be honest, it’s like, and you know, I understand things go wrong. And like, let’s have a conversation. And let’s problem solve it. And I’ll even give you the time to vent in the early stages so that you can process the venting. But like, at the end of the day, action solves most problems. Right, like with the right action, we can get not most problems, but like most obstacles we can get through. But you know, I noticed for myself a lot too. One of the things over the years. And this is why I love doing the lives is because I had so many ideas and so many thoughts like look, I’ve done, I don’t know how many like 100. And some now lives four days a week for several months. Like since I think we started in April, so somebody can do the math. But here’s the thing. So think about those hours and hours and hours of just content that I just create. So now think about how my life was when I didn’t have anybody to share all that content with. It was just dear. But to this point, he’s saying like, the action, like, I can have all the thoughts, all the feelings, all the thinking in the world and be like, Oh, I really want to help people. And I really want to, you know, give all these ideas to people. And you know, I can see how there ways to do things better, and people don’t need to be so stressed, and have all those things. And I’d be sitting at home by myself not doing it. And then I was like, You know what, screw it, I’m just gonna start sharing it. And if people want to consume it, let them come consume it. And I hope to God, it’s gonna like, I think we’re gonna have a great big library and resource for people when they find me. That’s what I think. Anyway. Yeah. So I did this. I was like the person I’d have ideas about, oh, it’s so good idea. And then I do nothing with the idea. And that’s why 75 Five heart is about doing the thing you don’t want to do when you need to do it. Even when you don’t want to do it. We sometimes forget facts and statistics. But stories always stay with us. They’re easy to remember if they involve something traumatic or graphic, like getting stabbed in the face. Oh, that’s his story. I think I was I don’t know why I highlighted that. I think that was just because it was like, oh, yeah, of course we need stories. One indication is that we have become mentally tough is our ability to create wealth. You know what, I think there are a lot people who create wealth who aren’t mentally tough, but I don’t know. I don’t know that to be yes or no. All right, let’s go with these more highlights to be successful at the highest level, which is where I want to aim for and so do you, I’m sure you have to do stuff you don’t like it’s part of the formula. We’re moving forward or we’re moving backwards. And if you’re not comfortable. If you’re not uncomfortable, you’re moving backwards. So this concept of Sarah said, Oh, good idea. Yes, share. What was it? What did I say I’d share Oh, I don’t remember what I said two minutes ago, I’m sorry, or one minute ago, I think Jera stories? I don’t know, anyway. But you know, this concept if we’re standing still, we’re moving backwards. You know, like, if you think about inflation, if you think about, just, you know how the world moves forward if we just stay stagnant, I believe that right. And yet, I think sometimes it can be. It can be hard, part 75, hard to constantly be in growth mode. Like I gotta tell you, since I started doing the reading, oh, and with this 75 hard, you have to read 10 pages of self development book a day, which I already told you. But I’ve been reading, like, what book Am I on? At this point? I don’t even know, of the 35 I’m probably, I don’t know, doesn’t matter. 36 with this book, like, the constant growth, like sometimes my brain actually hurts when I’m reading because I’m like, Oh, my God, how much have I absorbed in the last while and so I’m not surprised when people don’t want to be doing the hard work to keep growing? Because it can be exhausting growing off my own family. Thank you. Oh, have I good idea. I didn’t think to share, but now you do thankful you do? Oh, yeah. Right. I just always just kept it to myself for years. Like sometimes I’d come out with a little newsletter I like do a post here and there. But not ever, like consistently at this point. And you know, I had somebody who said to me, he’s just like, you know, maybe people take you for granted. And, you know, it’s not really doesn’t seem very valuable if you just do it everyday for free. And, you know, all that. And I’m like, Well, here’s the thing, sure, as hell aren’t very much value, if it’s in my brain and not going anybody else. So you know, what’s the alternative? Right? All right, no, maybe somebody wants to hire me to do this show every day? I highly doubt it. Oh, actually, I’m not gonna say that maybe somebody does, oops, Z gotta have that mental discipline to reel back in the negative thinking. The number one key to cultivating mental toughness is to intentionally put yourself in places that are uncomfortable. And the truth is, I think most of the time, people don’t want to be uncomfortable, for obvious reasons. Among them, it’s uncomfortable. So why would you want to do it? Like what would be the point. And the point is, is because that’s how we grow. That’s how we get to the next level. That’s how we blast through our comfort zone. And so you know, doing 75 hard and not being able to drink not being able to, you know, eat the nachos, or any dairy, cheese and cheese. But I’m like, starting to get over it, you know, just today, because I had another keynote, and my body is like, Yeah, I’ve been doing two workouts a day. Let’s let’s look at this. So what did we say I was on? Our I am on I’m 28. And so four days earlier than that I started to work out today. Yeah, that’s a lot. Exciting. That’s what happens when you do hard things. Your level of happiness is tied in direct proportion to how discipline you currently how much discipline you are currently exercising. And so I gotta tell you, like, you know, happiness. I mean, that’s my goal. I want people to be happier than they are now, if I think we all want to be that myself included. Why not? I mean, it’s a happy, happy thing to be. And I believe he’s right, the level of satisfaction from doing something that you didn’t want to do when you and you still went ahead and did it when you didn’t feel like it or you were too busy or whatever, is surprisingly empowering. I don’t know if it’s happening. I think it’s more fulfillment. You know, Dan Martell, who is one of the guys who I watch for a really long time doing 75 heart that inspired me, him in Martin, lead to leap. He says, happiness versus fulfillment. And he says, I think people a lot of people are looking for fulfillment, but they call it happiness. And I agree with that. I think happiness is just the moment and fulfillment is feeling the purpose. And so I feel like when we’re disciplined, yes, we help our happiness because we’ve done the thing and we don’t have to, you know, worry about not doing it or feeling guilty about that. But we’re also I think it’s very fulfilling to know that you can count on yourself. And that, to me is what 75 heart is sort of highlighting, highlighting for me anyway, maybe highlights different things for other people. Paul, I guarantee that if you do everything you’re supposed to do, you’re going to experience a kind of happiness that is only experienced by an elite minority of people on the earth, that people have paid the price to win the prize of mental toughness. So I’m not 100% sure if that is true, but I feel like I’m pretty happy and pretty peaceful and feeling pretty fulfilled in my life. So, you know, I, but again, I don’t have the sense or desire to compare it to other people. What I want is everybody to feel that, like, you know, this is the competition side, that’s just not part of me in the book. Okay. So a really important part of the book is the epic battle between the boss and the bitch. And these are the internal voices in our head. Now, in my book, I call what he calls the bitch, the internal messenger of bullshit. It’s a negative voice. That Okay, so let me just read what he says the boss versus the bitches. So the boss voice is always positive, always pushing you forward, always challenging you to go hard, who you want to be and what you want to do. Oh, and you know, a little sidebar. So one of the things here is that I think a lot of times mental toughness is about moving forward and getting better. And I’m concerned that it’s missing the out element of being joyful now being okay with now. And so that’s like another little differentiator in between our philosophies here. But the boss boys is the one that is like, I can do this. I’m good. Like, let’s keep rockin and rollin. Whereas the bitch voice is a voice that speaks fear, doubt, discontent, rationalization and laziness into our minds and hearts. The bitch voice is a forked tongue demonic master sorcerer, who knows exactly what what lies we will believe and exactly how to talk us out of anything. And, you know, I like I remember way, way back when, like when I was just starting my career, and I lacked confidence and doubt all those different things fear. Well, the rationalization and I don’t know what laziness, but rationalization is a big one. For me, I can pretty much rationalize anything if I choose to. But way back, when I used to say, I still say it, when in doubt, tuck yourself in, don’t talk yourself out of opportunity. And so often we listen to that pitch voice or as I call it, the internal messenger of bullshit. And by doing so, we are like literally stealing opportunity out of our lives. And so one of the ways that I’ve been able to overcome that voice in many respects in these is still there, right? So a bit having the mental discipline to interrupt that voice and go, Ah, not gonna listen to you little internal thought there. One of the reasons? Well, one of the ways I did that is we’ve got to give our internal voice, an external presence. And what I mean by that is like, get it out on paper, or type it down. Because what happens is, when it’s just in our mind, it becomes like, it’s just festers, and it goes with the imagination, and it can loop around and sort of swirl and get catastrophize and drama, dramatized and all of that, but then when we put it out on paper, we can look at something objectively. And so for me, that was a really, really, really good exercise in mental discipline and your internal voice. Anyway, he talks a lot about you know, which one do you choose to define. So if any, are listened to sorry, he says, identify the critical tasks that need to be done every day and complete those critical tasks. Like in fairness, like it is a recipe for success, right? The only thing is, is that the critical tasks that he’s having you do in the 75 hard challenge, which of course I am doing is specifically these things that may seem to most people to look a little bit extreme. And, but the thing is, once you get into it, you’re like, oh, yeah, and by the way, I don’t think everybody should just jump into 75 hard. I think you’ve got to have a reason to do it. I think you’ve got to have well, you don’t have to have anything actually you could just say yeah, you know what sounds like a good I’ll do it and make it happen. So perfect. But I think that had I have done this challenge a year ago I would not have had first of all I wouldn’t have chosen to do it a year ago. And I know that to be true, because I watched Dan do it. And I thought, how’s he doing? Why would he bother doing that? Oh, you judges may judge themselves. Yeah, I was like, Yeah, I’d never do that. Famous last words. And actually, fair enough. The reason I couldn’t because I only ever saw a men doing it. And then his wife, Renee, she, and I follow on Instagram, or Facebook or whatever. And she was doing and I was like, what? You mean women do it? She’s like, Oh, my God, tons. And then I started looking. I’m like, oh, you know what? I’ll do it. And then that’s how it happened. Yeah, I know, I’ve learned a lot on this particular podcast, but you see the what it says on the screen, no tweaking, no matter what, zero compromise. That whole compromise thing that’s all in moderation, I think is probably the way that people who have a tendency to rationalize, which would be one of my faults. Not so much now. But in the past, I would, I’d be like, Oh, wow, we could do that. But I can also rationalize for the good. And well, I Oh, yeah, that’s great. You know, like, bring me a problem, I’ll see the silver lining in anything. And it’s really like when you the funny thing is is like my workouts, for example. I never asked the question if I think when, because once you’ve made a decision to do something, nothing else is available, like the art of decide it was a route of design is Latin for to cut off, to cut off all other options. And so, like with the food, except when I’m craving something, that’s when I gotta have the the bigger conversation, but it’s like, okay, what vegetables am I going to have? Which meat am I going to have? Like, that’s it, right? Like, there’s not much. It’s not like, Oh, I wonder if I’m gonna have you know, I don’t know, whatever thing I would have. So that really I think is important. A real life doesn’t zipped by in rapid succession, it unfolds and slow, steady progression that is often painstaking and painfully dull. This is probably been the most eye opening for me in the whole challenge. He says, You need to fall in love with the mundane. And I think that is the best advice like it is, when I’m doing my walk runs in the morning, and it’s still dark. So I love it when the sun comes up, because I just watch it come up over the lake. And it’s, you know, beautiful and inspiring. And all of that. day when I was out, sitting and watching the sunrise, I was like, I can’t see it. And there are no many buildings in the way I can’t see it. And I was like running down roads trying to see the sun and I couldn’t because there were too many houses. But anyway, um, but when I’m running, and like there’s only I only run one way, right? Like, I’m at the one end of the village and I run up the village and then outside pass the sign and then up to the candy cane farm and then back again, right? And it’s like the exact same walk, if it’s a walk or walk, run, every time I go out the door in I’m going or when I do my workouts on my deck, right? It’s the same thing. And it’s like, this mundane sort of stuff. Right? And so Zhi Shan Yeah, just put in a question in the chat box. And I’ll come to the question. Yeah. As long as it’s not inappropriate. I’m totally good with having any question. Come on, it’s chat. For sure. So that idea of falling in love with the mundane, like so often, it’s the it’s the little repetitive tasks that we need to do every day that really ultimately end up making our success. And so what, how are you incorporating that was like, like, so I look at it, and I’m like, Oh, I gotta do this again. And then oh, no, catch myself mental discipline. And will be like, You know what, this is just something I need to do. And I’m going to fall in love with it. Right? Like so. And find the good in it and find the freshness. Find the freshness isn’t as the parents you know, want to ask that parents some against you what to do. You’re not to say that again. When you are on? Yeah, my parents. Well, my father is no longer alive. So you know that he doesn’t have much of an opinion. I mean, sorry, I was kind of making a funny but I shouldn’t because it might Sound insensitive My God, my dad was an amazing human. I loved him. I still do love him, obviously. And my mom is just wants me to be happy and supportive. So there you go. That’s all I know. Anyway, I think we’ve gone on quite a bit. But I hope that gives you some ideas and information he talks, like the second half of the book is what to expect on each of the, like 10 day cycles within the 75. So that is probably not as relevant to anybody who isn’t doing the 75 hard, but I do think that it’s a way of thinking that is a really, really helpful if you’re trying to grow and get up to that next level. So I think that was the that’s about it. Anyway, I’m super excited. You’re here. Thank you and may stress less, do more and be happier. I will see you on Monday. Bye bye.
