Develop the Mindset of a Navy SEAL with Mark Divine – Episode 54
Mindset is everything. It’s a common expression which can be heard in fitness gyms, sports teams, and even sales teams. But mindset is crucial for everyone. To be a leader, you have to have the mindset that you are a leader. You are worthy of leading, you have a vision which will take your organization into the future, and that you are capable of doing it. So in order to achieve this, I went looking no further than a former US Navy SEAL to find out how we can be more mindful as leaders.
Mark spent 20 years as a Navy SEAL officer, retiring as a Commander in 2011. He then founded and leads several highly successful enterprises including SEALFIT (Physical and mental training), Unbeatable Mind, LLC (Executive Mastery Development), NavySEALs.com and USCrossFit. Mark Divine is an expert in human performance as it is displayed in mental toughness, leadership and physical readiness. His work is based on an integral warrior-leader model that he developed and tested on over a thousand special operations candidates worldwide. The integrated training, which involves physical, mental, emotional, intuitional and spiritual training, has resulted in over a 90% success rate for the Spec Ops candidates. It is now taught to executives and corporate teams, tops sports teams, top athletes, professionals, first responders and warriors from all walks of life.
