Summary : The way of the Seal is predicated upon your commitment to fully develop personal discipline and an ethical stand.
The Way of the SEAL is an important book about how to think like a winner and leader. It will transform anyone’s life. However, it is a book that has to be read and reread many times in order to be able to apply it to your life properly.
Do you ever wonder why you’re not happy and whether you’ve stepped onto the wrong boat in your life? Most of us feel that way, and some of us feel that way all the time. We feel like some kind of a cog in a large wheel that is not even run by us. We feel out of control, and we can’t think straight. We feel stressed out, and there doesn’t seem to be anything we can do to get ourselves out of this rut. If you feel this way, this book is definitely for you!
This book is very different from most leadership books in that they are missing a key ingredient of what makes a true leader. It is not about leading from the outside and knowing how to act in order to be the best that we can be. Mark Divine will show you how to be a leader and to develop the character necessary to be a better person and to always try and improve yourself. Leadership is not about developing a skill; it is about character development.
To be a true leader, you have to commit yourself to self-mastery and growth. Even the best theory won’t help you lead yourself or a team to success. You need to change your mindset and become that leader. We have to try and develop genuine leadership which stems from the heart of the individual.
The way of the Seal is predicated upon your commitment to fully develop personal discipline and an ethical stand. You’ll focus on becoming a good teammate before stepping into the leadership arena. You will never seek leadership roles as an end in and of themselves. Ultimately, you need to develop kokoro which means to merge your heart and mind in action. This implies that you are balanced and centered, and can operate with synchronicity with your inner selves, others, and nature. When you commit to the integral development and lead with kokoro, you will be truly authentic, powerful, and present.
The Way of the SEAL is not a quick fix. It’s a journey, a way of being. You will learn strategies and tactics you can employ right away. However, the key factor is your own development into a person who lives these values and principles and doesn’t just speak about them. This is the true mark of leadership.
This is a wonderful book that I could not put down. Now that I read it once I will be rereading it again, doing the exercises and trying to apply it to my life one chapter at a time. It is that important, and most readers will feel just as drawn to become the best that they can be. It will be a book that is important to everyone who wants to live the best life and think clearly. And who wouldn’t want that?Powered by Sidelines
