My test for this year was joining the Navy and spending a month in SEPS due to medical (SEPS being the place they keep all the rejects that wash out of basic for whatever reason). Those days felt like some of the worst of my life.

Why are there so many thoughtless comments? Shouldn't people who are interested in bussiness be sharper?

one good way to test your will everyday is to just take cold showers instead of hot showers.

Human will doesn't exist.

You mean like going to church....😇😇😇
Think for a second: what is better than competition? Did you think.....? Enough....? Got it? Better than competition is cooperation. Better than "being better than the other" is "helping the other to become better". Better than prove yourself something is to know already you are good and you have nothing to prove yourself.
In one word: your whole system, your whole way of thinking is totally wrong. Stop trying to give suggestions and think there are other (better) ways to live your life.

Getting my ass handed to me in a 15' inflatable sailing kayak, contending with passing motorboats and unfavorable wind & tide, that was a great day on Jamaica Bay! Everything definitely went wrong, even lost my paddle at one point, only to see it floating right next to my "boat" 15 minutes later! I survived. Small sailboats are great.

Dudes a Navy SEAL and is probably used to getting shot at and being in fire fights on the regular and says that getting in a boxing ring with a bigger dude puts him out of his comfort zone? Yeah ok buddy

Married mate, do it every day!
So basically what he's saying is to get out of your comfort zone, I definitely agree with what he's saying. If you want to be successful in anything you have to get out of your comfort zone.
bret you
this is testing my patience
