the shores of Persia, thereby cutting off his army s only means of retreatMy face is grinding into the sand, my body is beyond exhausted Four terrifying men are clustered around me, screaming at me and doing their best to kill me.Not physically kill me I ll grant you that They aren t going to ship me out of here in a body bag But make no mistake They are planning to ship me out Today They want me as gone as last week s breakfast, and they are here to make sure that happens.Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training is famous for three things First, that image you ve probably seen, a line of guys running on a beach, miserable but determined, carrying an insanely heavy log on their shoulders while being yelled at by their instructor Second, the fact that there s this brutal ordeal somewhere in there called Hell Week And finally the quitting The desolate row of empty class helmets lined up on the asphalt, marking the passage of the vanquished, the goners, the losers And hanging over the helmets, that evil brass bell the bell you step up to and ring three times to make your defeat official The bell you ring to tell all your instructors and your teammates I give up I quit In BUD S, the quitting never stops In fact, it starts even before the first day Lying here facedown on the beach, my teeth biting on sand, I have a clear recollection of the day I showed up for registration ten weeks ago, sitting on a bench by that concrete and asphalt grinder, watching a BUD S instructor pushing another class of SEAL candidates through their punishing routine of PTs physical training, i.e., calisthenics , and being scared nearly out of my mind Holy shit Seven months of that There are plenty of would be SEAL candidates who reach this point and don t even make it through the check in process All it takes is witnessing another class being put through their paces, and their SEAL ambitions crumble to dust I understand why The truth is, I had a hard enough time just passing the quals to get into BUD S, forget getting through it I was coming off years of regular navy service, the fat fleet guy fresh from his cushy tour on the USS Kitty Hawk and checking into BUD S after barely passing the SEAL entrance PTs The guy the other candidates will look down on and the instructors will mark right away for early elimination Of the 220 guys in my BUD S class, I was the guy nobody wanted to be That guy That was me At the other end of the spectrum was Lars, a supremely athletic guy at the top of our class An incredible specimen Lars had thighs like tree trunks and could do push ups from dawn till dusk He could do anything you threw at him He wasn t human.And in our first week of training, about four thirty in the morning, Lars quit We couldn t believe it The guy we all looked up to, the guy we all would have pegged most likely to succeed was gone, nothing left to say he d ever been there but another empty helmet Lying there in the dark, sun not up yet, hearing that lonely brass bell clanging out through the silence of the freezing morning air, I could practically hear the thoughts emanating from the heads of all the guys around me, guys who up to that point had believed they were doing pretty well Shit if Lars can t do it, then I don t have a snowflake s chance in hell By the time we got through our initial indoc period and entered First Phase of actual training, 10 percent of our class quit And now, here I am, on the beach near the end of First Phase, and oh boy, only five months of torture to go If I survive this particular, personalized torture, that is.For a lot of guys, the moment of reckoning will come in a few days, when Hell Week starts Not me, though For me, Christmas has come early this year This afternoon, these four professional sadists came over to our team and pulled me aside, separating me from the herd like a doomed wildebeest plucked by a pride of lions, and walked me out onto the beach, alone Where they are now pushing me through an endless series of calisthenics, all the while shoveling sand in my face and screaming insults at me, all four at once, at the top of their lungs They ve been doing this now for, oh, close to an hour, or maybe it s been close to a year, I m really not sure at this point This is not a test, I tell myself These guys are not trying to see what I m made of They already know what I m made of, I m made of dirt and shit and weakness, and they don t like me, not even a little They see me as a handicap to the team, and they are right They want me gone, and if I were in their shoes, that s exactly what I d want, too They are willing me, with all the persistence and verbal abuse and sheer force of intention they can bring, to crawl from the beach up to the asphalt and ring that goddamn brass bell I get it I look up at my instructor and tell him to go fuck himself The only way they are getting me out of here will be in a body bag He drills me with a look that could bore a hole in a concrete slab Then nods and lets me up He looks over at his colleagues and says three words We re done here He can see it in my face I ve decided.Of the 220 guys who started out in my BUD S class, fewer than two dozen made it to the end That afternoon on the beach in First Phase, I realized two things First, that I was one of that handful who would be going all the way through And second, why it was that so many others wouldnt And it wasnt about weakness, or because it was hard The reason so many guys quit was just this they never really started.Those of us who went all the way through BUD S were not the strong ones Not the ones with greater ability or an excess of toughness We were just the ones who had decided to do it.Mastering fear starts with a decision You might think that big decisions, potentially life altering decisions, arise out of courage They don t It s the other way around The strength and the courage to keep going arise out of the decision The decision comes first.Decide to DecideDecisions don t just happen You have to make a conscious choice to be someone who makes decisions You have to decide to decide I know that sounds circular, but it s the rock solid truth Plenty of people go through their entire lives never really making decisions Not big ones, anyway Sure, they may decide what to watch on TV, or which socks to put on that morning What to major in at college, which career path to go into But even those larger life choices are, for far too many people, decisions they or less slide into, not out of any soul shaking reflection and commitment, but because it s just what seems to come next Maybe it s what their parents did, or what an older sibling did, or what the people around them expect them to do What their friends are doing What seemed like the most reasonable choice at the time For me, that s not a life lived, or at least not lived fully And it s surely no way to master fear The first and most critical step in mastering fear is to make a decision that has its roots deep in your bones, deep in your character, deep in your soul To do that, you have to choose to be the kind of person who makes decisions like that You have to decide to decide.I learned this from my dad, and at the time, I hated it My family lived in the mountains of British Columbia until I was eight years old, when my dad decided it was time to pursue a dream he and my mom had to sail around the world They bought a boat and sailed us down to Ventura, California, where we lived aboard that boat for the next seven or eight years Living on a sailboat in California was something like living in a trailer in Texas At school, I was the boat kid As far as I was concerned, it was a great life I would go surfing every morning before my classes started I d been working on that dive boat since the age of twelve, and I loved it By age fifteen I was living a fantastic lifestyle, making good money, selling lobster I caught to my restaurant owner friends probably illegally , and looking forward to turning sixteen, getting my driver s license, and chasing girls.Then one night my dad made an announcement Everyone around here talks about the trip they re going to take someday, he said They re going to sail here, sail there, blah blah blah I don t want to be the guy who talks about it his whole life and never does it Then he said, We re going And he meant it I was mightily pissed off I loved my life just the way it was I didn t want to go off on some family trip But off we went My parents enrolled my sister and me in independent studies, and next thing we knew we were sailing down the coast of Mexico, embarking on a thirty day passage into the heart of the Pacific thousands of miles away By the time we reached the Marquesas Islands, my dad and I were arguing over some questions of correct seamanship Eight hundred miles later, when we reached Tahiti, the friction between us had gotten so bad that it was clear one of us had to go It was his boat, so the one who went was me The next day I was standing on an island in the South Pacific saying, Shit, this is for real When the family boat set sail from Tahiti, I was no longer on it I left behind everything I d brought with me, which was pretty much everything I owned all my dive gear, a spear gun, a knife collection, a ton of books All my worldly possessions My parents helped me find a crew that was headed to Hawaii And by crew I mean a young couple with their three year old son on a forty foot catamaran For the next two weeks my hosts and I made our way north, bound for Hilo on the open water Here I was, just turned sixteen, my childhood home behind me and gone forever, alone on the Pacific The first few nights, I cried myself to sleep I was terrified When I eventually reached California, I had to face all the challenges of being a teenager on my own, learning how to do all those things I d always taken for granted, even tasks as simple as shopping for myself, making dinner for myself, keeping my own laundry together When I got that driver s license, I didn t even know how to put gas in the car As scary as it had been to face the Pacific Ocean in a catamaran, in many ways this was even scarier And it was all because of those two words my dad had said We re going My resentment burned like a blast furnace Funny thing, though Yes, I was furious at him, and yes, I was scared At the same time, though, the strength and power of that two word decision was undeniable Looking back, I realize now that as angry as I was, I also drew strength from his example You ve probably experienced this a moment when you faced a tough decision, and then once you made it, everything suddenly felt clearer It s like the first crack of thunder after a long buildup of low pressure atmosphere The air has been growing heavy and overcast all day, until that moment when the storm finally breaks and then all at once the air changes That s the clarity you get from making a big decision And out of that clarity comes great strength.Years later I learned about the great Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton, who was sometimes criticized by his contemporaries for being restless and eccentric Others were impressed with his keen mind and unusual leadership style Shackleton didn t care for authoritarian hierarchies he liked to form a personal bond with each member of his crew In selecting crew members, he cared less about people s technical qualifications and about their character And to Shackleton, character lay primarily in the capacity to be firmly resolute In 1914, Shackleton began preparing for one of the most ambitious trans Antarctic expeditions ever mounted To recruit suitable applicants for his new crew, as legend has it, he placed this ad in the newspaper Men wanted for hazardous journey Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness Safe return doubtful Honor and recognition in event of success.Do you suppose the people who answered that ad were afraid Of course they were They weren t idiots They knew that when he wrote Safe return doubtful, he wasn t kidding But their sense of adventure outweighed the fear To a man, I have no doubt, they all read that ad and had the identical thought, the exact same two words my father spoke We re going.Learn to Trust Your GutSo just how do you become someone who makes strong decisions How do you develop that Shackleton gene It starts with learning to trust your gut.This week I sat in a business meeting, watching someone who was faced with a critical decision As I watched, he paused and looked up, like he was thinking about it and I already knew he was going to make a poor choice How Because thinking about a decision doesn t make it happen Thinking is just thinking He knew this decision was coming He needed to have already gone over all the options and considerations before this meeting started The time for thinking was over It was decision time but he was still in his head And decisions aren t made in the head They re made in the gut.Does that mean you ll always make the right decision No But I believe you ll get into far trouble from not trusting your gut than you will from trusting it When I first got out of the service, I took my life savings and plowed it into a business idea called Wind Zero It was a fantastic concept a training facility serving both military and law enforcement personnel, deep in the Southern California desert My research told me that the region was desperate for a reliable resource like this Shooting ranges tracks for combat and defensive driving instruction mock urban environments for riot, hostage rescue, and other high threat scenarios Two helo pads and an airstrip We even added a Grand Prix style double racetrack, which reps from high end race car clubs had told me would be in huge demand Total cost, when the whole plan was in force, would come to something like 100 million.A useful weapon for those fighting creative battles in the War of Art Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art The big wins and most incredible experiences come when we feel afraid but do it anyway Read Mastering Fear, get out of your comfort zone, and dance with your fear, knowing it will lead you to new levels of performance Siri Lindley, former triathlon world champion, coach, and author of Surfacing My favorite part of this
