US Navy SEAL Jocko Willink on How to Create Bravery: “Step Into Your Fear.”

“We’re scared of what we don’t know. There’s only one way to learn and to know—and that is to confront that fear.”

I’ve had my own fears I’ve had to confront, and Jocko’s right—you have to step into it. You have to be confident and stay unstoppable despite the fear.

When I failed out of BUD/S the first time, I knew I couldn’t let the fear of failing again get in the way of my wanting to become a SEAL.

We all have something we’ve avoided because it created fear in us. Is there something you’re afraid of doing? What if I told you that fear is telling you it’s something you need to do?

What’s one step you could take into that fear to face it?

What 1% could you do today to reach your goals?

QUESTION: Coach, I’m doing alright with my arm strength for my pullups but my hands get really tired. Do you have any ways I could make them stronger?

ANSWER: While having good upper body strength is needed for pull-ups, your hand strength is almost more important because you can only go as long as they’ll let you.

We’ve put together an article full of great tips about how you can improve your grip strength. Try this article, too—Grip Strength Training for American Ninja Warrior.


QUESTION: Hello to all at SGPT. I’ve been going to the gym regularly for years but I feel like I’ve hit a plateau and I can’t get past it. In researching new ways to work out, I found your site and your 6-month program is very appealing. My question is can it be done by females or are your workouts just for males wanting to go into the military?

ANSWER: We have lots of females following our daily workouts and we do have a few in the 6 month training program as well. If you can’t do one of the routines, scale it or hit me up with a question about alternatives so you can get to the level you want to train at.
