The Mental Toughness Telesummit, a free online event to be held May 21 - 25, brings together bestselling authors, brain specialists, performance psychologists, world-class athletes and start-up entrepreneurs to show how people can develop mental toughness and perform better under pressure. People from all walks of life will learn how to develop the attitude and habits that lead to a more satisfying, successful life. Participants can register at

The five-day telesummit will be hosted by performance strategist Renita Kalhorn, a Juilliard-trained pianist and martial arts black belt. Spurred by her belief that everyone – from high-profile CEOs and professional performers to budding entrepreneurs and first-graders – can develop mental toughness, she was inspired to bring together the visionaries and role models she most admires as cutting-edge thinkers on mental toughness and other aspects of this crucial life skill.

Headline speakers include Paul Sullivan, New York Times columnist and author of Clutch: Why Some People Excel Under Pressure and Others Don’t, Sian Beilock, author of Choke: What The Secrets of the Brain Reveal About Getting It Right When You Have To and Dr. Les Fehmi, author of Open Focus. The Summit roster also includes Caroline Ceniza-Levine and co-author of How The Fierce Handle Fear, Chris Warner, one of America’s leading mountaineers; Mark Divine, former Navy SEAL and founder of SEALFIT, and Jade Simmons, the barrier-breaking concert pianist. The unique summit will give live, free access to speakers sharing practical, actionable information on how to be at your best under pressure and to sustain perseverance and passion despite failure, adversity and plateaus.

“In this increasingly fast-moving, competitive and turbulent world, the potential for stress is higher than ever. At the same time, our instant-gratification culture breeds low tolerance for discomfort,” says Kalhorn. “The cost of anxiety disorders in the US is estimated at upwards of $42 billion – and yet, there are few, if any, courses on mental resilience being taught at schools or offered in the workplace. We’re simply not equipped for the realities of modern life.”

Summit topics will cover the mindset and habits of mental toughness, including visualization, open focus, risk-taking, decision-making, productivity and peak performance under pressure.
