The Way of the SEAL

Think Like an Elite Warrior to Lead and Succeed
by Mark Divine | 224 pages

A former U.S. Navy SEAL Commander, Mark Divine integrates the ancient warrior traditions with grounded, practical virtue and 21st century get-it-done effectiveness in a way that I find incredibly inspiring. Big Ideas we cover include the power of front-sight focus, how to DIRECT your mind, going Yoda on your commitments and creating micro goals when things are tough.


“The Way of the SEAL is a new look at leadership and personal excellence—one forged in the deserts, jungles, burned-out cities, and oceans of the murky special operations world. I’ve taken my twenty years of experience as a Navy SEAL officer, flavored it with twenty-five years of martial arts and fifteen years of yoga training, and pulled lessons learned from six successful multimillion-dollar business ventures for a unique, highly effective, and accessible combination that anyone can use to become an elite operator. …

I believe that though not everyone has the physical ability, opportunity, or even desire to become a Navy SEAL, anyone can develop the same mental toughness, leadership qualities, and winning attitude. If I could sell a bottled elixir that would give you the mind-set of a SEAL, I would. I haven’t figured that out yet, so this book is the first shot across the bow.”

As I mentioned in our Note on Unbeatable Mind, Mark Divine is a living superhero. I think he should have his own action figure.
