Kickstart Your Monday Navy SEAL Style

For some people Monday can be a real drag.

For warrior athletes Monday is just another day with a few obstacles but many chances to kick @ss.

You see, it starts with a slight shift in your perspective.

Tip #1 Shift Your Thinking

The worrier (sheep people) – they see themselves as a victim and things happen to them.

The Warrior sees every small problem as an opportunity to get stronger.

The Warrior has a strong “WHY” that helps them push through the day

That said—check out a few extra tips to kick start your Monday and help you succeed.

Tip #2 Strong Coffee

Brew up a strong pot of bulletproof coffee and put it in your thermos to take to work.

Caffeine boost creativity which is a vital link to you having progress in your daily life.

Tip #3 Be Accountable

Yesterday I talked to my coach on the phone for 30 minutes (yes; I have several coaches).

At the end of the conversation he gave me 30 days to improve in one area and I will call him back and report in.

Being accountable to him makes me have to work harder to meet that goal.

If I slack off and don’t do the work then I will fail on this task.

Are you accountable to a friend or coach? Are you using this tool to your advantage?

Tip #4 Motion

Put your body in motion.

This can be walking 20 minutes in your neighborhood.

It can be running for 30 minutes on a new trail that you found.

It can be rucking/hiking for an hour with a 20 lb backpack.

The key is that you have to get outside and move your body.

Do you have an event on the horizon like a GORUCK or Spartan Race?

We have trained hundreds of athletes for the GORUCK and Spartan Race events and can help you too.
