9. “Change happens when you least expect it, and it lasts indefinitely. Preparation won’t suffice, but adaptability will. A personal willingness to accept change and to adapt to it is what allows you to flourish in the unknown. Preparation is just the byproduct of a willingness to try.”

Jocko Willink Navy SEAL Inspirational Quotes

18. “Our freedom to operate and maneuver had increased substantially through disciplined procedures. Discipline equals freedom.”

19. “Implementing Extreme Ownership requires checking your ego and operating with a high degree of humility. Admitting mistakes, taking ownership, and developing a plan to overcome challenges are integral to any successful team.”

20. “You can’t make people listen to you. You can’t make them execute. That might be a temporary solution for a simple task. But to implement real change, to drive people to accomplish something truly complex or difficult or dangerous—you can’t make people do those things. You have to lead them.”

21. “There were no more questions. The most important question had been answered: Why? Once I analyzed the mission and understood for myself that critical piece of information, I could then believe in the mission. If I didn’t believe in it, there was no way I could possibly convince the SEALs in my task unit to believe in it.”

22. “People do not follow robots.”

23. “The test is not a complex one: when the alarm goes off, do you get up out of bed, or do you lie there in comfort and fall back to sleep? If you have the discipline to get out of bed, you win—you pass the test. If you are mentally weak for that moment and you let that weakness keep you in bed, you fail. 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.”

24. “It’s not fun to get out of bed early in the morning. When the alarm goes off, it doesn’t sing you a song, it hits you in the head with a baseball bat. So how do you respond to that? Do you crawl underneath your covers and hide? Or do you get up, get aggressive, and attack the day?” – Jocko Willink (Navy Seals: Why Waking Up Early Matters)

25. “It’s really hard to guarantee things in life. I guarantee if you get up in the morning and you work out and you work hard, you will have a better day — 100% guaranteed.”


Admiral William H. Mcraven Quotes

26. “I think the best way to get a good night sleep is to work hard throughout the day. If you work hard and, of course, work out.”

27. “If you want to change the world, find someone to help you paddle.”

BUDS Class 286 training

By English: Petty Officer 2nd Class Kyle D. Gahlau, U.S. Navy (www.defense.gov) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

28. “If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right, you will never do the big things right.”

29. “SEAL training was a great equalizer. Nothing mattered but your will to succeed. Not your color, not your ethnic background, not your education and not your social status.”

30. If I have learned anything in my time traveling the world, it is the power of hope.

31. Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.

32. “There were many a student who just couldn’t accept the fact that all their effort was in vain. That no matter how hard they tried to get the uniform right, it was unappreciated. Those students didn’t make it through training. Those students didn’t understand the purpose of the drill. You were never going to succeed. You were never going to have a perfect uniform.

Sometimes no matter how well you prepare or how well you perform you still end up as a sugar cookie. It’s just the way life is sometimes.

33. “A circus was two hours of additional calisthenics designed to wear you down, to break your spirit, to force you to quit.

But an interesting thing happened to those who were constantly on the list. Over time those students — who did two hours of extra calisthenics — got stronger and stronger. The pain of the circuses built inner strength, built physical resiliency.”

    • Thank you for taking time to comment, Aya. As for your questions about the books, then in fact, I have not relied to any particular book. Instead, I have done these internet marketing traingin courses. They constitute the backbone of everything I know and do online. And they are, in my opinion, by far the best training courses I have found. So solid, so simple to follow… Just amazing.

      Other than that, I have done my research in the internet and also read much about copywriting. You can find great stuff about copywriting when you search my site on “copywriting” I have written pretty many articles on the subject.

      Try it out. You will find stunning study materials, some of the greatest ads (with biggest selling power), etc.

      If you have more questions, feel free to contact me either by commenting or using my contact page :)

  2. What an amazing list of inspirational quotes! My favorite is number 9, the one about change. I think many of us have a natural aversion to change, and the point, like he says, is to be able to adapt to it. Certainly important for a soldier, but can be just as important in our own personal lives. Thanks for putting these together!

    • Thank you for the feedback, Rachel. As you said, all these quotes, although crucial for soldiers (in training and in combat) are, in fact, as crucial for you and me in business and in every day life as well. So I am glad to hear that you found something valuable in them.

      God bless you,

      Egon

  3. All the quotes stresses positive thinking and to be optimistic. They are helpful for everyone to keep going in the journey. I like most this one:

    “Change happens when you least expect it, and it lasts indefinitely. Preparation won’t suffice, but adaptability will. A personal willingness to accept change and to adapt to it is what allows you to flourish in the unknown. Preparation is just the byproduct of a willingness to try.”

    Yes, in an unexpected situation our adaptability and flexibility are badly needed.

    • Thank you, Jimmy, for taking time and giving a feedback. You are right – they stress positive thinking and optimism – that’s why I posted them here. Because that is something an entrepreneur so desperately needs (especially in the beginning of his entrepreneurial journey). And, as you probably noticed, they SEALS also emphasize the importance of a teamwork. Nobody survives alone. That’s also true for entrepreneurs (again, especially true for newbies).

      So if you are reading this and are still trying to figure out where to get a great support team to rely upon, why not try this. I have found it absolutely awesome!
