I saw this on Facebook today, and watched it and immediately felt all kinds of inspired. This is old school, highly potent, and hard core motivation right here. It’s a fascinating insight into Seal training, but mostly makes you feel about 10 feet tall and bulletproof for any of the hard stuff in your life.

And when a four star general tells you to make your bed, well that’s probably good advice.
Joking aside, this is a fantastic speech about what it means to persevere and succeed. It’s a long one, but it’s well worth it.
