Navy SEALs Training Insights

May 13, 2014

Most men quit SEALs training over breakfast and lunch.

Not during tough exercises or braving inhospitable conditions.

They quit in anticipation of difficult conditions to come.

They self eliminate because they fear the coming challenges will be too difficult and they'd fail in front of their classmates.

What are you pondering quitting because of such anticipation?

Navy SEALs Admiral Olson shared further insights into who made it through their rigorous training.

Competitive athletes (especially water polo players and wrestlers) who played chess where 3X more likely to make it through.

Chess players think 2 or 3 moves ahead.  They aren't as concerned with their current predicament. They are problem solvers.

Don't quit something today over break or lunch.

Think 2 or 3 moves ahead.
