The US Navy Special Force, called the Navy Seals, is considered one of the most powerful armies in the world and only used for major operations when the task is beyond the capabilities of the regular army. This army is selected from among the best armies and trained more intensively. That is the hardest and most rigorous training to become a great warrior. This team not only trains the body to be strong, powerful, and agile, but also the mind, spirit, strength, discipline, and fearlessness in the face of a wide range of the most dangerous situations. The Navy Zeal can teach you the following lessons about life:
1. They have to get up in the morning, and the coach will check first and foremost to make sure their beds are arranged in the most orderly manner. They absolutely must prepare the bed and other materials well. Everything must be perfect. “What a great fighter for an unusual operation, but instead have to prepare the most beautiful place to sleep, maybe a special operation on the bed,” the soldiers would laugh at first. But it is only when they follow through regularly that they realize they have changed the most. Every morning, after you wake up, you must complete a task that is required to prepare the best possible environment. No procrastination, no mental languidness. You must be able to do small things well before you can accomplish a great task. You need to teach yourself to be alert and determined to do well from the beginning.
2. In coaching, army is divided into groups of seven. Each team must have a boat to be pushed, and that boat would cross the sea across the ice at a great distance. In order to reach the destination, everyone must work together to pull, push, and paddle with all their strength and make sure to get the boat back to the seashore. This means that in order to be successful, you have to work as a team, you have to work hard together, if someone does not work hard, they will not be able to reach the goal and will be eliminated from training. You have to work together, have a team spirit, take responsibility for the fate of the team, and take care of each other. Want to succeed, you can not do it alone.
3. Out of 150 soldiers, only 35 will be selected. During the training session of Admiral William McRavin, he said, “All the trainers are the fastest runners, the fastest swimmers, the fastest rowers, and the fastest climbers, and they are strong and hefty.” “One of them was the smallest, and he was always laughed at and thought he would be fired in the next episode.” However, in all the tests set up—running, pushing, rowing, and climbing walls—the short man always wins first place. In this training, the most fair and equitable thing is that no matter who you are, no matter what color you are, no matter how small you are, as long as you work hard, you will win. It is also a point that tells you that you can not look at people from the outside; you must look at their real abilities. Don’t judge the book by its cover.
4. Every morning, if you do not prepare your bed properly or dress modestly, you will be subjected to one of the strictest penalties: you must run as fast as you can across the desert, through the deep mud, and dive deep, bury yourself in the mud, keep your head down, and recover. You need to do this all day long. All trainees are punished like this. In this case, no matter how hard you try, the coach will find any small weakness of yours to punish. The lesson here is that no matter how good you are, it is impossible to please everyone, especially the faultfinders. So you have to acknowledge any wrongdoing, accept the punishment (criticism), and move on.
5. During the training, each trainee will be tested on a number of challenging issues, such as long-distance running, long-distance swimming, exercise, and long-distance lifting, crawling under thorns, climbing mountains, hand-tied swimming, tying your legs, and doing a lot of other things to keep you physically and mentally fit to continue this work. Failure means injury. At this stage, whoever wants to stop wanting to give up is not forced, but if you stop, you will not be able to become the special team as a great warrior. This is a test of how well you can deal with the most difficult situations. Everyone who can do it will be strong and energetic. The lesson from this point is that life is not easy. If you want to be strong, you have to train and face many difficult problems because life is full of pain, discouragement, despair, and problems at every turn. If you give up, you will return to your normal self, but if you persevere, you will become a superhuman. Your life is up to you; Whether you want to give up or struggle is up to you. No one forces you.
6. All soldiers will go through dangerous training after undergoing strenuous training that requires both physical and mental strength. You may think it is the craziest training, but it must be done if you want to move forward. That is training to swim in San Diego Island, an area rich in white sharks. The trainer will describe the beauty of the coral and other aquatic species before the training begins. But at the same time, you will face a shark that will come and eat you. However, research has established how to deal with this shark. Before it attacks you, the shark will swim around you. To resist this shark, you must not be afraid of it. You must look at it firmly, take up your position, gather strength to escape, and hit it in the nose; it will run away. The lesson here is that in a world full of sharks, critics, discourage, and spread negative thoughts and prejudices. You do not have to be afraid of such people, you have to concentrate and move forward or fight back as best you can.
7. Naval Special Forces training focuses on attacking enemy ships on the seabed. During training, the soldier had to dive into the water and swim to the enemy fleet at night, which was almost 4 kilometers away, equipped with a respirator. You can see some light while swimming to the enemy ship, but when you get to the ship in training, you will be in the darkest situation. The goal is to reach the bottom of the ship, which is the deepest point and also the most dangerous. In such a dark and dangerous situation, the Zeal must concentrate calmly and use his trained skills to reach the ship’s bottom. The lesson we can learn from this is that when life encounters the worst and darkest problems, you must concentrate to find the light again. You have to remember that the more difficult the problem, the more you have to calm down.
