Mark Divine on Bulletproofing and Front Sight Focus

By | Podcast | No Comments

“Because everything…everything in life first starts in the mind. Everything that you accomplish in life and everything that’s built starts in the mind with a vision.” –Mark Divine

In his solocast today, the Commander talks about Front Sight Focus and Bullet-proofing your mission, more principles from the Anniversary edition of his book “The Way of the SEAL.” In a previous podcast, he focused on how to define your goals, and in this episode he gives his attention to properly focusing and breaking your vision down into separate, achievable missions.

Learn about:

  • Front sight focus: Make sure you are able to radically focus on the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason
  • The 80-20 rule. We spend 80% of our time on non-productive work, and 20% on doing things that are useful. Hear how we need to flip that ratio to get things done.
  • Bullet-proof your mission: hear about the SEAL practice of “dirt diving,” or practicing your mission, so that you can be prepared for whatever might happen.

The mind is where all goals and achievements get their start. So it is essential that you learn how to win in your mind before you ever enter the field.

Dr. Parsley’s sleep remedy was designed to help Navy SEALs to overcome some of the sleep challenges that they have as hard-charging individuals. Doc Parsley believes that proper sleep and recovery is absolutely essential to maintain our ability to perform at a high level. His sleep “cocktail” includes a number of supplements to provide our bodies with chemicals naturally produced by the brain to encourage sleep. Commander Divine is a huge fan and encourages members his tribe to try it out for themselves. Enter “unbeatablemind” at the checkout on www.docparsley.com  to get 10% off.

Charlie Melton talks about being a sniper and a SEAL

“Most important thing in shooting is like pretty much everything in life. You gotta learn the basic principles, you gotta follow them and practice them over and over. Build that muscle memory up.”–Charlie Melton

Charlie Melton is the marksman who trained Chris Kyle and Marcus Lutrell among many others. Charlie and the Commander go through his career with the SEALs as both a trainer and a soldier. Charlie was always interested in shooting, and was determined to enter the military. The SEALs seemed to be the hardest outfit for acceptance, training and service so that’s what he chose to do.

Hear about:

  • After a very serious and tragic car accident that caused the death of his wife Charlie was still able to come back to active duty with SEAL team 5.
  • How Chris Kyle was very good, but he was also at the right places at the right times
  • Charlie recently broke the 5000 yard (2.84 miles) record for shooting

Most recently, Charlie started Charlie Mike Precision, which specializes in long-range rifle, carbine and pistol training at his ranch in Texas. The website is at charliemikeprecision.com.

JJ Virgin (@jjvirgin) is an expert in nutrition and fitness. She is the author of several New York Times bestselling books, and most recently she wrote the book “Miracle Mindset: A Mother, Her Son, and Life’s Hardest Lessons.” The book is about her mindset in dealing with the serious and life-threatening injury dealt to her son by a hit-and-run driver.  There wasn’t a great deal of hope that her son would live, let alone recover, but JJ wasn’t willing to give up, and Grant lived through it. She describes the ways in which she maintained her hope when faced with the unthinkable.
