A leadership book by former Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author Mark Divine, focused on harnessing the principles of purpose and discipline in life to achieve success.
From attacking insurgents in Iraq to hunting down Osama bin Laden to rescuing pirate hostages, the U.S. Navy SEALs are known across the world for getting the mission accomplished. Everyone is familiar with the demanding nature of SEAL physical training and few can hope to reach those standards. But it is not just strength and agility that marks a Navy SEAL. Leadership, decisiveness, creative thinking, discipline, adaptability and perseverance are all part of what makes a SEAL a SEAL. They have a completely different worldview, a unique way of approaching every challenge and opportunity that enables them to do what others can’t or simply won’t.
In The Way of the SEAL, retired Navy SEAL Commander Mark Divine reveals exercises, meditations, and focusing techniques to train your mind for mental toughness, emotional resilience, and uncanny intuition. Along the way, you’ll reaffirm your ultimate purpose, define your most important goals, and take concrete steps to make them happen. A practical guide for business people or anyone who wants to be an elite operator in life, this book will teach you how to: Lead from the front, so that others will want to work for you; Practice front-sight focus, the radical ability to focus on one thing until victory is achieved; Think offense, all the time, to eradicate fear and indecisiveness; Smash the box and be an unconventional thinker so you’re never thrown off-guard by chaotic conditions; Access your intuition so you can make “hard right” decisions; Achieve twenty times more than you think you can – and much more.
Using the tactics he learned from America’s elite forces with lessons from the Spartans, Samurai, Apache Scouts, and other great warrior traditions, Divine has distilled the fundamentals of success into eight powerful principles that will transform you into the leader you always knew you could be. Learn to think like a SEAL, and take charge of your destiny at work, home and in life.Buy now

“Dear Coach Divine, I want to thank you for your amazing Unbeatable Mind book and program, which in my estimation, is the most well thought out, organized and practical program of its kind that I have ever seen. Simply the best.” — Eric
“Sir you probably get these letters all the time but I want you to know that you have profoundly changed my life for the better. I am a better human being since reading Unbeatable Mind and participating in the online academy. I am gaining control of my monkey mind which has run amuck for many many years with self-defeating attitudes and behaviors. I am now part of the solution in this world and not part of the problem. I am a sheepdog!” — KevinBuy now
It begins with your arrival as a Navy SEAL BUD/S cadet. There’s no time to dilly dally. You either do the first workout and commit to this training, or don’t bother. Next day, you move on to another challenge completely different than what you’d expect. It’s not the stuff for doubters, quitters or complainers.
These 8 weeks will be hard. Mark will push your physical body to its limits and test your inner resolve. You’ll be tempted to give up. But if you embrace the suck of the challenge, you’ll begin to win. The stories and adventures Mark takes you on – escaping battlefield danger, calming yourself when there’s no way out, learning to trust your gut – will tap into more power than you knew you had.
You’ll begin to glimpse and reach your full potential. You’ll develop the character that makes a Navy SEAL: discipline, drive, determination, self-mastery, honor, integrity, courage and leadership, as well as some serious physical strength and stamina. You’ll thrive in a teamwork setting. You’ll learn to laugh and not take your circumstances so seriously. You’ll even know how to functionally train without equipment.
This is the ground-breaking training that increases SEALFIT athletes’ overall endurance, work capacity, and toughness.
