“Complacency kills gentlemen” is something that is shouted over and over with each and every compounding mistake at BUD/S. When there is a chance of people getting really messed up or dying and shit does indeed matter, complacency kills. One had better be focused on what’s going on and be ready…
Now days complacency just causes blah…. Goals? Eeehhhh don’t really have any, would I like to do more sure, but for the efforts.
Set a simple goal, get a 1/2lb more than last time with the same form or perhaps we should say good form, in case you weren’t at your best “last time”. Getting a little bit better, coming in consistently and striving to be alive, not living in the yellow. Complacency is the yellow, that leaving work getting home and not remembering the drive, forgetting to stop at a stop sign in a neighborhood you have lived in for 7 years go into the store for milk and come out with smoked oysters, push ups where you aren’t touching your chest or those squats not hitting full depth, WTF are you doing get with it.
GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD.
Focus on the here and now, get all zen buddha when a bears eating your leg because that’s bound to hurt. When doing something good for you or otherwise enjoyable, playing with us for instance, kick ass. Scaled, RX or Spartan who cares, do it the BEST you can today. Help those around you want more and be more by doing better. Help them find that internal give a fuck that should be driving each of us, we all need a kick in the pants from time to time! No facebook memes, pep talks or rha rha cheerleader BS will get you through in the long run, some days sure… every day no way. It’s all about the education, with curiosity you will learn and thrive, what others are thinking of you is none of your damn business, stay out of their head also.
