“The concepts that you will read about in this book are tools I developed to master myself. They have been tested in combat under the worst situations imaginable. Most have been written in blood. Along the way I’ve discovered that people who have created success never tell you you can or can’t do it. They only want to know how badly you want it. It’s the people who are afraid to take the chance or have inherited someone else’s success who tell you about everything you’ve got to lose. The people who are afraid of risking it all quit the first time the going gets rough. It’s not until you risk it all and go for the thing you really want that life becomes unlimited. All the shackles are released.
Other books on the market have given eyewitness accounts of SEAL Teams in combat, as well as autobiographical works on SEAL careers. Unleash the Warrior Within offers something no other book has: A plan for thinking like a SEAL—at least, one SEAL—so that you, too, can reach incredible goals, or to ‘live on a different, higher standard,’ and achieve more of what you want out of life. …
I guarantee that if you participate completely in the drills incorporated in the book and apply them daily, something inside you will change. By the time you finish the chapters that follow, you will have gone through a seven-step process to free that warrior within yourself.
The metaphor of combat and fighting may seem over the top but I promise you, the more you push yourself to accomplish anything that seems beyond your comfort level, the more you’re going to hear from yourself and others how it is impossible.”
~ Richard “Mack” Machowicz from Unleash the Warrior Within
Richard Machowicz. Mack for short.
He’s an intense, inspiring and empowering former Navy SEAL. (You may recognize him as the host + producer of Discovery Channel’s FutureWeapons.)
Mack was a certified instructor in the Naval Special Warfare Combat Fighting Instructor Course, a Naval Special Warfare Scout/Sniper, and has multiple black belts—having studied everything from muay thai boxing, Jeet Kune Do, kickboxing, aikido, jujitsu, savate, arnis, and karate.
In short, he’s an ultimate warrior. (His newest project? NDCQ. Short for the mantra he used to get thru SEAL Hell Week that best captures his philosophy: “Not Dead Can’t Quit.”)
In this book, he teaches us how we can unleash the warrior within ourselves to, as the sub-title suggests, “Develop the Focus, Discipline, Confidence, and Courage You Need to Achieve Unlimited Goals.”
It’s a great addition to our growing SEAL + mental training collection. (Get a copy here.)
