Navy SEALS Mental Toughness Techniques
Updated: Apr 8
Have you ever wondered how it is that some people can handle extremely stressful situations well, and lead in the moments that most of us are looking for comfort and leadership. These people have been trained, either formally or by virtue of life experience and having inherent leadership qualities. There have been articles and studies done that examined the techniques the Army and in particular the Navy SEALs would use to ensure that soldiers will be able to execute their missions despite the most challenging of circumstances and extreme levels of stress in life or death situations. Here are 3 Tips from a former Navy Seal 1. Eat the Elephant : Have you ever wondered how some people seem to be able to get a remarkable amount of work done in a short period of time? They simply do small tasks one at a time until the cumulative effects of their efforts yield impressive results. There's no way around it though, this requires having a Strong WHY and Purpose behind your actions. 2. Visualize Success : The Mental Game is just as important as your physical performance. In fact it directly impacts your ability to perform physically. If you have a strong set of Affirmations and do practices such as Meditation and Visualization you can create the conditions that will be more likely to lead to positive results. The POWER of Words is known and the Law of Attraction has shown that we need to know exactly what we want. 3. Find your Tribe : Getting through any rigorous task will be difficult without having a Strong Support System. Having a few strong and meaningful relationships will be critical to creating the right social conditions to thrive whether you are an entrepreneur, professional, or just want to have a better quality of life.
