Don’t give in ~ Dig In !!!

Never Give Up ~ Dig In !!!

Never Give Up ~ Dig In !!!

Hi Folks,

Each time before doing challenging workouts I know my ass will get kicked big time. But also reminded me of a read from Navy SEAL Richard Machowicz (this guy is the Real Deal, and Awesome guy, too!!!), “We all have conversations with ourselves all the time and they play a tremendous role in what we do. The conversation that one has with him or herself is what kills you.
Especially under extremely stressful situations like “hell week” where you are almost up for 110 hours a week! I had to get myself in the mindset of never giving up no matter what. A buddy of mine gave me a quote which stated, “A man can only be beaten in two ways: if he gives up or he dies.” I had that quote in my wallet until the pencil marks rubbed off. I really lived that motto. I decided that if I am *not dead*, then I *cannot quit.*”

Have read where intense training is as much mental as physical. That it builds a person that will not quit; developing their heart. If you do not have heart, you could be the greatest athlete in the world. However you are going to cave when the pressure comes. You have to have the guts to finish what you start.

Also Mr. Richard Machowicz stated, “if people can say yes to the following three questions, they have the guts to finish anything: **

*1. Are you willing to make a choice? *Very rarely do people make choices that fundamentally effect their lives. For example, changing channels on the TV is not something that fundamentally effects your life. You have to step up to the plate and make a fundamental life changing choice.

**2. Do you have the courage to start now?* We get people that make choices but do not do anything to get started. Half the people that made a choice drop out at this stage. They do not take the first step to move in the direction that they want.

***3. Do you have the commitment to finish?* You can start, but can you finish? This is where most people disappear. Very few people finish. People can start things, but can they see it through the end? Can they be there when it matters?

Would further like to share a video that has really been inspiring.

It’s on YouTube and here’s the link….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vB59PkB0eQ&feature=player_embedded

So next time your facing a challenging workout ~ Don’t Go for it ~ Eat it ~ Conquer it ~ Digest it then DIG IN !!!! With a big smile knowing your not Dead so NEVER QUIT.
In fact relish death over giving up, while deleting quit from your mind ~ your vocabulary ~
Then Conquer, even Grow from that challenge seeking not to succeed…but to Exceed the goal !!!

Absolutely Gets Done !!!

This post is dedicated to my Brothers in Arms whom worked with me during my stay overseas.
