“I do not want you to give in to the pressure of the moment. When you’re hurting bad, just hang in there. Finish the day. Then, if you’re still feeling bad, think about it long and hard before you decide to quit. Second, take it one day at a time. One evolution at a time.
Don’t let your thoughts run away with you, don’t start planning to bail out because you’re worried about the future and how m
uch you can take. Don’t look ahead to pain. Just get through the day, and there’s a wonderful career ahead of you.”
Excerpt from Lone Survivor. Captain Joe Maguire giving advice to Navy SEAL hopefuls during their brutal BUD/S training.
These guys go through brutal training! But Joe Maguire’s advice to these SEAL hopefuls can apply to us too! Live in the moment. Don’t dwell in pain.
