It’s FREE to get started, too. You’ll like that part…

Let’s face it, if you ever want to succeed online (or in whatever area of life), you need mental toughness. If you are mentally weak, you most probably won’t achieve a breakthrough. There will come a day where you throw in the towel, ring the bell, and quit.

There are millions of people all over the world who keep dreaming and dreaming and dreaming. But they don’t give their all to make their dreams reality.

That’s why I collected the following 14 tips that you can find below. These are the tips that I learned from these tough SEAL guys. Yes, these tips are extraordinary wealth for me. Find out!

14 Navy SEAL Fitness Training Tips:

Tip #1: Never Entertain a Thought, “I can’t!”

It’s just amazing how forceful negative thoughts can be. How often I tend to think – “I can’t do it. It’s not possible.”

The problem is that you start to analyze the situation and you come to conclusion that it’s not possible. The odds are too much against you. The more you analyze your situation, the more it confirms you that it’s not possible.

Next step?

Give up.

Why? Because the odds are never in your favor. You have to deal with it or you are done.

So, if you don’t want to give up and quit, here’s the secret I learned from these tough Navy SEALs: “Never, ever consider a thought: “I can’t!”

Tip #2: Take Control Over Your Thoughts

This one is a similar one. Mental strength means that you have control over your thoughts. If I am mentally weak, then in difficult situations I let negative thoughts to control my mind. They drain my of energy and I basically I am done.

That’s why a former Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell says:

“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 much you can take. Don’t look ahead to the pain. Just get through the day,” ― Marcus Luttrell

And also:

“I think the key to making all the way it is to keep a positive attitude at all times.  Never have a negative thought…period end of story.  Once a negative thought gets into your head you’re done…… because one negative thought leads to another and then it’s a slippery slope to quitting.“ – Walter Diaczenko, BUD/S Class 48


Tip #3: TEAMS Beat the Odds

This secret here is one of the biggest revelations to me.

The reason for this is that naturally, I am rather an individualistic person (although I can work in a team as well. I have done it many years). Also, it is not so natural for me to go and ask help.

Until I began to learn Internet Marketing and how to make a full-time income online. Then I quickly discovered that it was pretty much a hopeless uphill walk to accomplish alone.


Let’s face it, when you are a complete novice, you know nothing. Every step you make is unknown territory for you. And then you get stuck. And again. And again. And you have no glue what to do next.

Guess what happens then? Unwanted thoughts like, “I can’t do it” and “I should give up,” start to circle in your mind.


Just read the following quotes of the former Navy SEALs. See how they hit the nail on the head (I am baffled, to say the least).

Note! They talk about the “Hell Week” – the most brutal week of the 6 month long SEAL training – and how they survived it:

Everyone depended on each other.  NO ONE could have made it by themselves. That’s why they call it a “TEAM.” – Bill Daugherty, BUD/S Class 23

The only thing that got me through was my classmates. They were pulling me while I was pulling them. No one gets through training alone, no one!” – John Roat, BUD/S Class 29

I relied on my classmates” – Joe Yarborough, BUD/S Class 77

Help your team mates whenever you can.” – Denny Johnson, BUD/S Class 42

The only thing that got me through was my classmates. They were pulling me while I was pulling them. No one gets through training alone, no one!” – John Roat, BUD/S Class 29

“Pain, lots of pain and TEAM MATES push each other as hard and far as it takes to make it.” – Larry Burchett, BUD/S Class 50

To be honest, I learned two important lessons here:

First, in order to succeed, it is extremely important to have a team around you. They are pulling you when you are in your lowest.

But there is the second lesson, which is even bigger revelation to me: The team is NOT only for you to support you. The real secret is that you help your team mates as much as you can.

That’s where the real strength lies. That’s why individuals play games but teams beat the odds.

Somehow I never got it before. I had heard it of course but it never became a Rhema (=revelation) for me.

Takeaway: If you ever want to succeed in making full-time income online, you need to find a good support team. Find someone to help you paddle.

Where to find a good team?

Well, if you ask me, I recommend Wealthy Affiliate community. Why? As far as I have seen, this by far the most supportive team you can find anywhere. Read more here why I have come to this conclusion (By the way, I rely on Wealthy Affiliate community too. Clearly I cannot do it alone).


Tip #4: Sharing Knowledge is the True Source of Power

This is yet another brilliant gem uncovered right in front of your eyes:

“The fact is, while knowledge is powerful, sharing knowledge is the true source of power because it enables others to act. But the key is to do so clearly and consistently.” – Jeff Boss, an adaptability coach and former Navy SEAL

See! It’s not only that you belong to a team or that team members depend on each other. But it goes one step further – they key to success is sharing knowledge with each other.

How does it work?

As Jeff Boss tells us above – when you share knowledge, you enable others to act. Furthermore, it reaches its maximum efficiency when you do it clearly and consciously.

And when others return the favor, all benefit in maximum level.


Tip #5: Accomplish One Small Event at a Time

This secret it best revealed in “The Navy SEAL Training Guide: Mental Toughness.” It says that you can get through hardships easier when you don’t think in longer time periods (half a year, month, weeks, or even the daily schedule). Instead, you focus on literally getting done just one small event at a time.

That’s why Admiral William H. Mcraven encourages people to start their days by doing their beds. It’s a ridiculously simple task, right? But here’s the trick – when you do your bed right after getting out of bed, you have accomplished the first task successfully. It gives you encouragement and feeling of success. So you can tackle another simple task (getting dressed, then eating breakfast, etc.)

Do you get the point?

I have tried it and it’s is so much easier to face and overcome even extremely complicated challenges – one simple task at a time.

But not only that. There’s another benefit in it. Namely, when you look at all of your today’s challenges as an one piece – the task ahead seems way too big for you. You will get discouraged and don’t even want to start. Am I right?

That’s why it’s so much better to slice your day into tiny and simple tasks, and then solve them one by one.

“My game plan was that I could make it from meal to meal.  5 hours of activity and 1 hour to eat and rest.” – Kory Knowles, BUD/S Class 167

Tip #6: Just Keep Going

This is truly a great lesson here (and a similar one to the previous lesson).

“Maybe you don’t have a strength to finish the run but you have enough to make another step “I didn’t know if I could finish the run, but I knew I could take one more step. I did it. And then I took another, and another, and another. A couple hours later the sun came up as we finished the run. I had made it.” – Al Horner, BUD/S Class 45

As you can see, the secret of success is to keep going. Just keep going. When you look at the whole challenge in front of you – Hey! It’s enormous. You clearly cannot do that. But you can do one more step, can’t you?

Writing can be so awfully difficult. I have felt that frustration. It just does not flow. Period. And I know I need to finish that article.

So what do I do? Procrastinate and waste my time by surfing in the internet? I am guilty on it. But I have learned to follow the rule below:

“Proceed one step, one hour, one evolution at a time.” – Denny Johnson, BUD/S Class 42

One step at a time, I am able to cross the finish line.


Tip #7: Get Comfortable With Uncomfortable

If you want to be an entrepreneur, you have to get accustomed with uncertainty. It’s true that an ordinary 9-to-5 job gives you a kind of security. It does not matter whether your company is doing well or not, you get your salary, pay your taxes, and feed your family.

But when you are an entrepreneur (especially in the early stages), every day is pretty much filled with uncertainty. This uncertainty is clearly uncomfortable. And people don’t like uncomfortable. That’s why people tend to stay in their comfort zones.

But now, uncomfortable is your new norm. Somehow you have to get used to that. And this is the meaning behind the Navy SEAL saying, “Get comfortable with uncomfortable.”

There is a hidden good news in that saying, though. It is revealed in the following Navy SEAL saying:

“Pain is weakness leaving the body” (Meaning: Training to be a Navy SEAL is painful. But as you get stronger you don’t feel as much pain.)

Tip #8: You Must Deal With Fear

“Being afraid is a state of paralysis in which you can’t do anything.” – Marcus Luttrell

Have you ever felt that? How your blood runs cold, your body is covered with cold sweat, and there are butterflies in your stomach. And the same unwanted circling thoughts: “I can’t. I can’t. I can’t.”

The Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell is right – fear has a paralyzing power. You cannot do anything. Therefore, you have to find ways to deal with it.


Tip #9: Mental Toughness and Laser Focus Make You a Winner

Was it Henry Ford who said, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

The Navy SEAL Training Guide describes an interesting phenomena. Namely, many physically exceptionally strong and fit young men quit SEAL training. While others, who are quite ordinary from a physical standpoint, keep going day after day, until they pass the test.

So what’s the difference between the two groups?

The one single reason that causes the SEAL trainees “make it or brake it” is… according to the Guide:

“… the ability to remain mentally focused when faced with continuous and very stressful challenges or situations.”

See! It’s not so much about physical fitness as mental toughness and mental focus. The next quote from that same Guide only confirms the idea:

“The guys that start BUDS thinking that they won’t make it…DON’T MAKE IT! Those who begin BUDS with an “I will die before I quit” mentality are the guys who are standing tall on graduation day.”

Do you want to stand tall on YOUR graduation day – on a day where you have achieved your dream (be it financial freedom and security in old age or something else)?

If this is what you want – Train your mental strength!


Tip #10: Proper Training Is Paramount

The following Navy SEAL quotes about the importance of proper training make the point clear as a a clear sky:

Failure to train is training to FAIL!” – Chris Sajnog, BUD/S Class 199

“Under pressure you don’t rise to the occasion; you sink to the level of your training. That’s why we train so hard.“– Unknown Navy SEAL

“Training weeds out the self-serving, selfish individuals, and keeps the team players whom we can count on to be there when we need each other.” – Daniel Olson, BUD/S Class 39

It is not true only for the military (or even sports). It is true for every area of life. And it is true for Internet Marketing and Making Money Online as well.

It is extremely difficult to succeed online without proper training. But… where do you get that proper training?

If you ask me, I recommend Wealthy Affiliate Certfication Courses. The good thing with the Wealthy Affiliate training is that they have a completely FREE Starter Membership. It means, it won’t cost you a bean to figure out if they can help you.

I personally have found WA training extremely helpful and, in fact, I am relying on it. But I don’t know about you. So never mind, what I say about their courses. Find out now!


Tip #11: Discipline Equals Freedom

I don’t know about you but I value freedom above almost all things. And that’s why the following quote by the former Navy SEAL, Jocko Willink, “Discipline equals freedom,” really brought it home to me:

These SEAL guys know what they talk about. They know about exercising discipline so when they tell that discipline equals freedom then you have a good reason to believe them, right?

He gives you a simple task to test yourself: When the alarm goes off in the morning, do you get up out of the bed right away or not? Or do you lie there in a warm comfort until you fall back to sleep?

As you can see, it’s a really simple test, and you already know whether you passed it or not. So what an important lesson does it carry?

Here’s what:

Mental weakness is the force that keeps you in bed. And as stated by Jocko Willink:

Though it seems small, that weakness translates to more significant decisions. But if you exercise discipline, that too translates to more substantial elements of your life.”

See! Your mental strength (even in small things like getting up out of bed) defines pretty much whether you will succeed in other areas of life. And it definitely defines whether you will succeed in the Internet business. Because it’s tough.

The good news in that quote above is that you can train yourself and develop your willpower and self-discipline.

Starting from… No! Not next week. Not even tomorrow. But today!


Tip #12: Nothing Matters But Your Will to Succeed

From this angle (=willingness to succeed), I have tremendous respect towards people who are dead set on what they want from their lives. They don’t care what happens on the left or right. Having blinders on they keep pressing toward their dreams. In that sense, they are like war horses – through the sleet, through the snow, they just keep going:

“I knew before I started that I would never quit as there was nothing else I wanted more than this.” – Joe Yarborough, BUD/S Class 77

I had one single purpose goal; to graduate from BUD/S Training and to become a Navy SEAL.” – Jack James, BUD/S Class 70

“… ever since I was a very young lad, all I ever wanted and cared about was being a Navy Frogman. There was nothing in my eyes that compared to the skill and daring of Frogmen.” – Roger Guerra, BUD/S Class 48


Tip #13 : There’s Only Plan A

Reading Navy SEAL testimonials, there is one thing that comes out – these men went through the Hell Week and all other hardships because they did not have plan B. The only other option for them was returning back to the fleet and its grey battle ships. As it was not an option for them then quitting was not an option either:


“I’d concentrate on those haze gray monsters and tell myself over and over that if I didn’t suck it up and keep moving I’d end up calling one of them “home.” – Steve Robinson, BUD/S Class 59

“I almost gave up. But then I looked out over the bay and saw a gray ship.  If I quit, that was where I might end up.” – Al Horner, BUD/S Class 45

Tip #14: Real Battle is Won in the Mind

The idea must sink in until you start to believe it. Or otherwise you keep telling yourself that physical conditions are the deciding factors of whether you succeed or fail. But they are not.
