Episode 242: Former Navy Seal Mark Divine | Realizing Your Potential & Staring Down the Wolf

When you’re looking to achieve something extraordinary, you have to unlock the potential that lies within you.

So many of us struggle with this. We think we are doing the best that we can do — but, really, most of us don’t know how much we’re capable of because we have never pushed ourselves past the point of discomfort. So, how do we find models and systems that allow us to shatter our ceiling of achievement?

Mark Divine is a former Navy SEAL commander, the New York Times best-selling author of The Way of the SEAL and Staring Down the Wolf, and the founder of Unbeatable Mind and SEAL Fit. When he recognized he was going down the wrong path in life, he began to ask better questions and examine the underlying story that had led him there. Through the process of investigation and meditation, he found what he believes he was meant to do.
