One of the most important things that I ever learned happened on the BUDS Navy SEAL training grinder.
You see – I did not come from a warrior culture. I had only see cowboys and vikings and brave indians on TV.
I did not know what it was like to be in their presence and hear the words that they spoke.
So when Senior Chief Bravo said in a quiet voice “Boy, If you quit now your gonna quit the rest of your life”.
That hit me like a lightning bolt coming down from the sky.
Everything stopped for a moment as my tiny brain processed that matter of fact statement.
I remember looking up into the spray of the cold water hose – my nose and mouth getting overloaded with water.
I said “Hooya, Senior Chief”.
It was all of 10 seconds in my life.
After that day I was a changed man.
I had a new strength I never knew I had before.
Yes; I was still short and un-athletic but I had put something in my mind.
The idea and belief that I was not a quitter. I was a winner… and winners put their heads down and keep on pushing forward.
I used that same idea late on in life when I got my first report card in college and had a C minus.
I was like screw this.. I am going back into the Teams.
But in my head I remembered what Senior Chief said and I knew deep down this was only a small obstacle.
Do you want to quit sometimes?
Do you get down on yourself?
I can relate and that is why I put together the SGPT audio series to help pull myself up from mediocrity and being average.
I have thought about quitting several times in my life but inside my gut I know that I have to keep going as others depended on me.
When I train other athletes I feel the same way as many of them are asking for me to help them find a way to win (and not quit).
In these audios I really have something to say about quitting and finding your way towards your goals.
I am not a professional speaker but I can assure you that I bring it from the heart.
